Fernanda Carneiro is a designer with a dream and a mission.
A perfectionist from an early eage, Fernanda frequently found herself frustrated by her inability to find elegant dresses that would fit her small but curvy figure. Combining her passion for fashion with a talent for design, she set out to pursue that magic fit.
Born in Brazil to Brazilian parents, Fernanda moved to the United States with her immediate family when she was five years old, yet her recollections of Brazil are near and dear to her heart. She began drawing at an early age under the watchful eye of her grandfather, and inherited her taste for clothing design and crafting from her grandmother. Growing up in Los Angeles and Miami further exposed Fernanda to a wide variety of cultural and style influences, forming an aesthetic that is both fun and chic.
After graduating from the University of Florida with a degree in marketing, Fernanda completed her education at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. Post-graduation she remained in Los Angeles, working in both production and design at major fashion labels like BCBG Max Azria and A.B.S. Recently, Fernanda decided it was time to follow her dream and create a collection based on her own experience and tastes. Beginning with her capsule collection of dresses, she hopes to fill a void in the retail world and fulfill her lifelong dream of bringing her unique and stylish vision to the world.
