A master's degree in London and a long trip through India planted an ever-growing skein of ideas in Joana Duarte's mind. The fashion designer was then lost in distant lands of dreams, slowly entangling herself in a love affair with untold stories. Songs from the most diverse corners of the world, fabrics that traverse the globe, crystals, saris, doilies and embroideries. Out of these treasures found in her grandmother's chest or in flea markets and antique shops, Joana creates fashion for this day and age. But she doesn't do it alone: BÉHEN collaborates with small communities of woman artisans. Thus is spun the romantic tale between the brand and the fashion that favours time, skill, beauty and durability. And from there sprout the seeds for a richer, more ethical and more sustainable world....
