When everything is perfect, it is dead.
It is in status, there is no movement.

Kicked out of perfection and kicked in to perfecting.
Which is the true perfection.


Invalid, true perfection!


INVALID is a fashion studio where the creative process and technical expertise are constantly on the way to perfection. Telma Patricia Fonseca Monteiro is the founder of INVALID and the road to perfection is her driving force.


Telma graduated from the Royal Academy for Visual Arts in The Hague and previously completed the Fashion and Technology training course at the MTS in The Hague. During the training she was allowed to do an internship with Viktor & Rolf, Marlies Dekker and with couturier Frans Hoogendoorn.


After ten years of experience in the fashion world, she decided to give shape to her vision and to set up her own fashion house.

Since November 10, 2012 INVALID Atelier is a fact!

In addition to its own collection, INVALID Atelier offers the possibility to have unique garments designed on request, but also sewing courses in which participants are helped to realize their own designs.


The studio stands for a high-fashion feeling and high quality for the customers.

The studio INVALID does not participate in the standard fashion seasons. Telma Patricia Fonseca Monteiro spends a lot of time on each item and it shows in her diverse work. The personal style behind the studio is of great importance.

 INVALID Atelier reflects a sense of relaxed and timeless elegance, with an emphasis on beautiful fabrics and the perfect fit.
