The Portuguese children’s fashion brand Möm(e) was nominated by the British magazine Junior Design for the Junior Design Awards, in the Best Children’s Eco Fashion category. “I am truly proud to be able to take the ‘made in Portugal’ brand abroad, and see the talent and quality of our artisans made known”, explains to T Jornal the designer and founder of the brand, Inês Camaño Garcia.
Competing is the brand’s latest collection “a.v.ó” – the Portuguese word for grandmother – inspired precisely by the memories of Inês’s grandmother, Silvina, who this year celebrates her 90th birthday. The brand will send “several pieces to be evaluated in detail by a competent jury”, explains the designer. There are still no dates for the winners’ announcement.
This is not the first time that Möm(e) has been shortlisted by the Junior Design Awards. Last year, with the Autumn-Winter 2020 collection, the brand won the bronze medal in the same category. “We are hoping to get the bronze one more time or maybe even better”, concludes Inês.
