Nuno Baltazar has worked only under his own name since 2004, the year of his individual debut in Portugal Fashion, at an edition held in Figueira da Foz. In May 2005 he opened his first store, in Porto, as an extension of his studio work. He sells his ready to wear collections in the store. 

His work extends beyond collections to the creation of unique pieces in the studio, with the label Nuno Baltazar Atelier. Personalities of note include the presenter and actress Catarina Furtado, the classical conductor Joana Carneiro and sporadic collaborations for music, cinema, theatre and dance. At the same time, his creative office has various uniform projects underway, for EDP, Casino da Póvoa do Varzim, IBIS and SPA Holmes Place). 

He launched in 2009, with the architect Vítor Almeida, Baltazar | Map – Line of furniture and lighting. 2010 and 2011 were years of internationalisation of Baltazar| Map, which showed at fairs in Milan, London, Paris and Abu Dhabi. Nuno Baltazar was nominated for the Golden Globe Best Designer of the Year awards in 2008 and 2010 and won the award in 2013. In 2010, 2011 and 2012, he was also nominated for the Fashion TV Portugal Fashion Awards, which he won in 2011, in the category of Best Fashion Designer.
