Travelling all over Portugal has allowed Suzana Magalhães to experience first-hand different perspectives of artisanal work, and this has been instrumental in the process of building her brand. She found an opportunity to express her creativity in a course at CITEX, thus launching her career as a fashion designer.
Boasting over 20-years- experience in the textile industry, Suzana has collaborated with several nationally and internationally renowned brands, which has allowed her to travel worldwide. Many of these trips allowed her to find out more about her country and to avidly research about different arts, having found it difficult to find female artisans.
Appalled by this fact and inspired by a different social paradigm, she saw in Luizas & Co an opportunity to express herself. Suzana aims at enabling younger communities to identify with traditional arts, specifically those which implicate exclusively handmade work. Suzana believes that both the renewal and disruption of shapes will perpetuate Portuguese traditions.
