Born and raised in Beja –  Portugal, I developed an interest in fashion from an early age, while helping my grandma unwind knit hanks for the blouses that she knitted and spending hours with her, trying on the decades-old clothes she had in her closet.

I was always been passionate about art in all its expressions, and my work has always reflected a cathartic journey with my personal perspectives of the surroundings, emotions, and inspirations.

In 2010 I joined a Fashion and Textile Industry Design course at Modatex in Porto – Portugal and being a sustainability-driven fashion designer, I founded my homonymous brand in 2015 – ANA SEGURADO STUDIO – celebrating a slow living and focus on a circular design, employing conscious manufacturing practices, and mindful consumption habits.
