The Guava project was born in 2010, when designer Inês Caleiro, who had studied at the London College of Fashion and worked with Jimmy Choo after winning the Best Student Award, decided to venture out into the business world.
Inês Caleiro defines herself as "a designer in love with the exploration of new shapes and with geometric and contemporary structures that may allow her a form of expressing the emotions of metropolitan adrenalin," and she is a Portuguese young talent.
Displaying great versatility, Inês Caleiro has also been involved in the sectors of jewellery and graphic design. The investment on Guava, "a fresh, contemporary, urban brand with a great concern for art, design and architecture," appeared when she was living in the USA, in Washington, DC, and working for a Portuguese furniture design company. The goal, now, is to turn "Guava into an internationally successful lifestyle brand."
