Morta Nakaite holds a BA in fashion design from Vilnius University of Applied Sciences, and is in the process of completing Masters degree in Textile Art and Design at Vilnius Academy of Arts. She is an annual participant at the Lithuanian Fashion Week ‘Mados Infekcija’ where she presents conceptual clothing and footwear collections. She also works as a costume designer for theatre and cinema.

Using experiences and stories which are strongly connected to Morta’s home city Vilnius, she is searching for a personal and unique relationship between art and design. She works intuitively, aiming to communicate something that cannot be expressed in words.

She is currently designing for her own brand MORTA NAKAITE and is running a collaborative fashion project ‘m o r t aa i d a’ which continues her profound artistic practice.
