Subscribing to the Helmut Lang school of thought, where ‘fashion is about attitude not hemlines’ the Marques’ Almeida aesthetic evokes a raw effortlessness. Cutting their teeth at Vivienne Westwood and Preen respectively, Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida design collections that hit the mark between impulse and consideration. In May 2015 MARQUES’ALMEIDA were awarded the Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy (LMVH) Prize for Young Fashion Designers (the most prestigious award emerging designers can receive) and the brand has only grown since. Currently stocked globally in top department stores the brand has been worn by Rihanna, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Elle Fanning and Beyonce. The Shelter is the only New Zealand stockist of Marques' Almeida.
