Who is Morena Couture?

Hey, my name is Osvaldina Moreira, I’m self-motivated and enthusiastic. Back then, during my high school years, I discovered the world of sewing & couture. Ever since I can remember, I’ve been coming up with ideas and projects or goals to tackle. However, in 2014 I took the leap of faith and created my own design collections. Firstly, I began to make different art of dresses for families and friends. Shortly after that, my label saw more and more success. I find a lot of satisfaction in choosing a goal and seeing it through until the end. It’s how I learn and grow as a person.

Fashion design means everything to me. When I see people wearing my design, it boosts my self-confidence. It enables me to bring my imagination into life and share my know-how. Through sewing, I escape into my own state of meditation.

Cap Verdean Awards 2017

Fast forward in 2017, I progressed in sewing and brought different dresses alive. The long work hours and many trial and error paid off at some point. In late 2017, the first Cap Verdean Awards 2017 saw a glamorous crowd from all over the country celebrate various industry’s creative talent and I’m so glad that I had the chance to be part of this.

This year’s event featured many categories. I must admit that the competition was fierce. However, I’m really thankful that I won the price in “best capverdean fashion designer”.

where to go from here…

Let’s see what will happen in 2018 and beyond.

So, thank you, dear reader for coming along for the ride. You make this work worthwhile. I hope you’ve enjoyed learning a little bit about me.
