Portuguese designer Jessica António is J-ANT.’s brainchild and she dedicates herself to creating collections that strive for a craftsmanship revival in the fashion industry of today. Supportive of sustainability and passionate for textile manipulations, Jessica successfully combines these two factors to create exclusive and detail-rich, zero-waste garments, worn by artists like Cata Pirata and other fashion forward individuals. On the other hand, she combines these extravagant designs with casual pieces of unique high-quality, comfort and aesthetics, mostly assembled by haute couture sewing techniques.
J-ANT.’s collections are often inspired by textures and color structures found in nature. Growing up on a farm in the countryside in the Algarve, Portugal, has ensured the designer a special bond with nature. Therefore, we can often depict a clear comeback of natures’ defined textures in Jessica’s designs, such as coral and fossil inspired textures and structures.
