Born in 1992 in Maputo, Mozambique, Omar Adelino concluded his studies at the Secondary School Josina Machel, and since then he decided to pursue his career as a professional makeup artist and as a fashion designer. After his participation in the “School” category at the 2012 edition of the Mozambique Fashion Week, Omar Adelino came back the following year, this time in the category of “Young Designer”. Thereafter, Adelino has produced fashion shows for the 2013 and 2014 editions of the Fashion Love Maputo, as well as participated at the Riccione Moda Itália fashion event. In 2015, he was consecrated “Best Young Designer” by the Vodafone Mozambique Fashion Week, and won the first place at the Vodafone Mozambique Fashion Week – Amarula.
“I am by Omar Adelino”
“It’s all just like me. I am Omar Adelino.”
I created this collection inspired by the adjectives that form our character, based on the characteristics that make us be.
Produced entirely in black color, refined finishes in lace and stones give a touch of class.
This collection is made of fabrics like linen, lace, vinyl, suede and velvet.
With a very characteristic design, our brand aims not to escape the essence that makes us the “Omar Adelino”. Strength, courage, claw, persistence and struggle are some of the adjectives that make us be and want to be Omar Adelino. And that’s why I say, I am Omar Adelino.
