Valônia graduated in Fashion Design from the Veiga de Almeida University in Rio de Janeiro and, throughout her 12-year professional career in Brazil, built a rich baggage, integrating style teams from renowned brazilian brands such as Farm and Animale that are part of SOMA Group - one of the largest fashion groups in Brazil. “I feel that I inherited from my grandmother the taste for the universe of clothes, always very vain, she recounted memories of her with her tailor trying on custom clothing with beautiful buttons, shoulder pads and ultra feminine models.”
After years of creating clothes, our designer overflows her charm with the possibility of designing every single detail of a piece. Through the deepening of a sensitive research of themes and stories, Valônia seeks to translate them into collections, creating pieces with soul. All the steps to build a collection make her vibrate, the work of the people behind her moves her, and she is passionate about handmade. "My desire is to share and spread the way I look at life and my creations genuinely reflect my way of looking at the world and of living." - Valônia Véras

With the main values of respect for others and nature, the brand is based on the commitment to sustainable development. We follow the practice of slow fashion, producing a reduced number of pieces and using local Portuguese-Brazilian labor. We seek to praise the people involved in the production and we value the quality of human relations. And, as a result of this chain, products are born with affection, with stories, thus generating a great virtuous circle. We know that we still have a long way to go to become a fully sustainable brand, but we are genuinely committed to decisions that consider people and the planet.
