Life is full of changes, and I have enjoyed every one of them.
In 1988 I arrived in Paris to start my modeling career. It was a very exciting time for the fashion industry and also for me. I was lucky to be on the runway of many talented designers and iconic labels – Chanel, Christian Dior, YSL, Kenzo, Rochas, Fendi, Gianfranco Ferre, Oscar de la Renta . . .
The creative relationship between a model and a fashion designer is almost magical. Experiencing those quality moments, from the birth of an idea to its final result, with the most beautiful fabric and yarns, was amazing.
Mix, create and transform
From that world I entered the world of mosaics and learned how to combine colours and textures. Bringing those two worlds together made me enhance the skills that required me to mix, create and transform.
A brand full of inspiration
This beauty of transforming materials inspired me to create CRLacerda Homewear. From quality yarns we create comfy plaids, elegant bedcovers, gorgeous sets of cushions to accent your home decor – the possibilities are endless!
Brazil, where I was born, is a place inhabited by artisans, the real storytellers of our culture. That is where I get my inspiration for colours and patterns for the collections, at the same time perpetuate an artistry tradition.
Passion with no pollution
In order to produce CRLacerda Homewear, we enforce the respect for the environment at my factory by implementing a Zero Waste policy: passion with no pollution.
