It's fair to say that Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida of the label Marques ' Almeida, are a pair obsessed with denim, woozy nostalgia for the '90s and grungy youth. It's an infections preoccupation.

Lulu Kennedy spotted it and snapped them up for Fashion East and as of last season they're going it alone showing to a venue packed with fashion editors and buyers.
