ABOUT

Morta Nakaite, previously educated in fashion design at Vilnius University of Applied Sciences, now she is doing Master’s in Textile Art and Design at Vilnius Academy of Arts. Every year she presents a conceptual clothing and footwear collection at the Lithuanian fashion week ‘Mados Infekcija’. She also creates costumes for theatre and cinema and works as a stylist. 

A clothing item is made and designed using an intuitive working method which allows her to express that which is difficult to communicate through words. 
Using personal experiences and stories which are strongly connected to Vilnius, Morta’s home city and her personal developments, she is searching for a personal and unique relationship between art and design.
