Carolina Moreira founded Cravo Studios after her academic journey in the UK where she specialized in Menswear Design.
Carolina is passionate about her roots, her backgrounds and Portuguese culture and traditions. With Cravo Studios, Carolina tells a story based in the past but adapted to the present. Love, heritage and a genuine creative process are the main morals that the designer carries throughout her collections.
Currently based in London, Cravo Studios focusses her entire production in Portugal
Cravo Studio's ethos is to endorse topics that speak up for unheard communities. Drawing inspiration from the false masculinity acknowledged during 20th century, this collection honours the ones who broke through the standardized mold imposed by society.
“Break Free” aims to demystify the stereotype of masculinity and appeal to the validation of the vulnerability and fragility of all men. A satire on masculine attributes, this collection presents a clash between oversized silhouettes and prints inspired by family archives, with pieces that would normally be seen on women's wardrobe.
