Hello, my name is Andreia Silva and I am the founder and main designer of Carsi. In 2017, I studied law and took sewing classes in my free time and I already knew that the fashion world was my passion. That year, between fabrics and sewing machines, a small project was born with bikinis sewn and designed by me, but customized to the taste and body of each client.
Two years later, in the beginning of 2019, with many ideas in mind, Carsi was born in Portugal, a registered brand with its own design. Her first collection launched online was made up of eco-friendly swimwear, whose campaign was aimed at female empowerment.
Over the months, new collections have been developed that are true to our values: quality, environmental responsibility, glamour and exclusivity. During this year the brand grew, started to operate in England and our first store in Nottingham was planned and built. In February 2020, our first party collection was launched, together with a capsule collection for men, the result of a collaboration with the sportsman João Carvalho.
Today, the Carsi team’s intention is to make its customers feel special and unique as they are. Thus, we produce different collections so that Carsi can accompany different moments in the life of each one, always with limited pieces so that each piece is even more exclusive. We pride ourselves on working with responsible suppliers, maintaining transparent practices and always considering how to have less environmental impact in each decision we make.
Our collections are designed between Portugal and England, by me and my dear Ana, a fashion designer. We count on the help of Cristina, who deals with suppliers, customers and always gives her aesthetic hint in each design. Together we create exclusive pieces that are subsequently made in small studios with talented seamstresses who are passionate about creating pieces that make us feel incredible and ready to conquer the world.
In England we have an experienced and dedicated team that reflects the Carsi ideals both in store and in our online customer support, offering excellent service, always aimed at the well-being of our customers.
