Maninha, a High-end Designer brand by Celia Fernandes Da Silva was established in 2013. Since its launch, the brand has expanded to include Lingerie and swimwear. Maninha reflects a sense of feminine timeless elegance, focusing on fine fabrics and the design the brand is known for Ultra feminine silhouettes to modern-day classics.
Born In Angola’s Capital Luanda and raised in France, Celia Fernandes was a natural artist and was introduced to sewing from an early age. In France, a sewing & fashion technical course encouraged her to pursue fashion design. A move to London cemented this dream after entering a fashion competition with Brand Alley and Fashion Capital where Maninha’s Audrey Little Black dress won and was sold by Brand Alley at high volumes. This gave Celia the confidence boost to create an entire collection which was selected and publicized by French Elle Magazine.
