About me
Inês Mourão is an ambitious and multidisciplinary designer with a background in fine arts. Studied Fine Arts in high school which initiated her creative career and influenced her future projects, as well as a creative upbringing of ballet, violin and painting classes and theatre. Originally from the north of Portugal, Inês moved to Cambridge, in 2017 to attend university. Being exposed to a new culture and way of living allowed her to develop her perspective of this industry and acquire new skills. Her projects explore gender equality and empowerment - merging feminine and masculine, artificial and organic, testing the boundaries of garment construction and its functionality. Inês uses the human body as inspiration, offering different perspectives on it, questioning its strengths, fragility, and limits. The most distinctive aspect of her design identity is the constant use of tailoring and experimentation with unique materials, unconventional to fashion and fabric manipulation and print
