Janaïna Milheiro, textile artisan-designer

An artisan-designer, Janaïna Milheiro primarily works in handmade silks and feather-weavings, but also creates original lace and embroidery designs.
Creating a dialogue between feathers and textiles is for her a way of enriching the creative language of fashion by initiating a give-and-take, which is testified to by the veils, velvets, beadings and laces which result from this exchange.

Her creative approach is influenced by different techniques: embroidery, lace making and sewing on the one hand, with weaving, knitting, printing and braiding on the other hand. These feather-fabrics demonstrate Janaïna’s polyvalent vision of textiles.
From February 16-18, 2016, Janaïna Milheiro participates in Maison d’Exceptions, the space at Première Vision dedicated to haute création.
