Valentim expresses creativity through fashion and art. He studied in the School of arts António Arroio and in Ar.co’s Jewellery department. He worked with Ana Salazar, the pioneer of Portuguese fashion, creating jewellery and accessories for her collections from 1990 to 2010. In 2008 he started his own brand after winning "Accessories Collection of the Year" at ITS#7 in Trieste - Italy, and started presenting his own collections internationally. With his FW11 collection "Alchemy", which was shown at Mude (Museum of Fashion and Design), he started to take part in the official ModaLisboa annual calendar, as the first designer to present an all accessories fashion show.
