"i never thought i would end up in fashion, but it makes so much sense to me now."
time out boston shoot (photo by sarah skolnick.)
during boston fashion week, i had the luck of meeting some very inspiring,
fashion-loving ladies, one of whom is the endlessly talented amanda maciel antunes.
recently featured on time out as a stylish bostonian, amanda has been living
in the city exactly three years and eight months.
originally from the suburbs of sao paolo, brazil, ms. antunes left home to
pursue a full time art career with just a suitcase and $300 to her name.
working a number of odd jobs, while taking a few fashion & art classes
at massart, this modern day cinderella was able to start her
own artistic brand, d.ama design in 2009.
her unique brand encompasses a wide collection of all things
fashion & art-related. from a styling to re-fashioned vintage pieces, to
prints & visual arts, d.ama design is literally brimming over with projects
and stylish possibilities.

when she is not working on her portfolio for zero2sixtycreative,
where she was signed as a stylist in 2010, amanda is working on her very own
online mag, spirited, which is set to come out three times a year,
and combine all of her passions: visual arts, fashion, literature and film.
she is truly a girl after my own fashion + art loving heart!
