About

I learned to use a sewing machine at age 8 from my great-aunt Zira. It was a black and gold manual Singer, so beautiful.

I love vintage things, beautiful and special things... I like to use 20's, 30's and 50's fashion styles in my clothes choices, and I use many vintage patterns to make authentic Edwardian and Victorian clothing pieces with small modern adaptations.

My personal interest in Asian aesthetics and history have taken me to use vintage kimono silks to make unique pieces.

Foreign Floozy is the name I have been using for my creations, that at this moment center around head decoration, fascinators or something of its family, like you never seen them before...

I use vintage materials where possible and otherwise, buy locally, use fair trade and recycled materials and supplies…

I use vintage materials where possible and otherwise, buy locally, use fair trade and recycled materials and supplies. I want to make beautiful things that don't cost the planet or abuse humans.

I trained in goldsmithing, silversmithing and contemporary jewellery design at the Royal College of Art and have exhibited my art work throughout Europe.

I am Portuguese (Angola born), lived in the UK for 17 years and now live in Germany. Hamburg is home to me, my Femme Feline and my Tom Kat. The 3 of us live in an attic flat, where I have a room just for me, my materials, my threads, my haberdashery, my silks and my 3 lovely vintage sewing machines... So, I am Foreign, I am THE Foreign!!

I can take on commissions, for accessories customized especially with any material, for any occasion or special requirement!
