Portugal Fashion FW1819 in Lisbon | Fashion without boundaries! Let’s find all about?

Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.

– Coco Chanel, French fashion designer, 1883-1971

Nowadays, in the fashion realm, trends are saturated & everything is allowed – or almost. There is no sense anymore to restrict collections to asymmetries, colours or patterns – even if in the end, it might characterize the technical aspects of the collection. Now, we want an identity, a personality, a situation, a perception – A SOCIAL & INDIVIDUAL PURPOSE!

Just like the vision of Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel about #fashion, the 42nd edition of Portugal Fashion – in Lisbon – presented us shows full of empowerment & messages, placing #fashion where it belongs. Among others, Storytailors, Alexandra Moura, Susana Bettencourt, Carlos Gil & TM Collection were the fashion designers who, at the end of the day, touched every person – including me – in many #BeYOUtiful ways.

As we – humans – evolve & change, Storytailors during their FW18-19 fashion show presented us a fluid & transmuted collection, which mirrors the universal energy. A collection where most of the pieces could be orchestrated with others and different conversations stemmed different medleys. During the show, we could see the models holding pieces of clothing, just like humans sometimes hold back their wings. However, time keeps going & we must free ourselves while being open to experience everything that our heart calls to. If not, the universe starts work by its own hands & make #BeYOUtiful transformations in our life, just like the designers –  João Branco e Luís Sanchez – did during the fashion show with their clothes. {#manifest111}

When it comes to Alexandra Moura, her FW18-19 collection came from her inner self, exposing her past, present & certainly a brilliant future. “I AM” is the collection that brings Self-Knowledge {the antidot to mindless consumption}.

Susana Bettencourt – with a fair trade & ethical fashion concept – presented us a collection full of modernity, while keeping her nature & essence in every piece. If that wasn’t enough, I became even more in #love with the brand after talking with Susana. As she said to us “the greatest power of #Fashion is The VOICE, The Message” – & we couldn’t agree more. With this collection {#MachineAfterMachine}, Susana Bettencourt wants to create awareness around mindful changes that our society is facing – the human behaviour in society & robots. Well, ultimately with the self.

With playful colours, Carlos Gil presented a woman chic, trendy, but above all secure of herself! If there were to be a 3rd Sex & the City movie, I am sure that Samantha Jones – because of her strength & power, don’t get me wrong – would be wearing one of those amazing pieces of art. This collection could be my candy crush, but it is my #Harmony! It’s case to say:

Where were you when the lights went out?

Lastly, but certainly not the least – just following the order of the shows – there was TM Collection by Teresa Martins. From the concept of the collection to the classic – from Vivaldi (click play to get into the mood) – while the contemporary environment of the show, making a fashion moment beyond exquisite. If I had to describe the show in one word, it would be EMOTION.{#ForestPath}

Between transmutations, time-lapse, behaviour & path, each one of these collections has one thing in common:

{HUMANS}

…the true heart of fashion and all the rest, even if we talk about layers, trends, colours and forms. Because in the end, what & how we wear is a deep extension of our actions, perceptions, fears & expression.

VOZES IMPERDÍVEIS {Portugal Fashion FW18-19 Lisboa}

Nos dias de hoje, tudo à nossa volta parece ser e querer ser mais, enquanto se afundam num vazio.
Mesmo no mundo da moda parece existir uma mistura desordenada de padrões, cores, épocas onde tudo parece ser permitido - ou quase tudo!
Assim, não tem sentido continuar a falar sobre as coleções sobre um ponto de vista exclusivamente técnico. AGORA, nós - pessoas - queremos
identidade - que se tem perdido no meio da confusão -, queremos uma personalidade, uma situação, uma percepção!

No que respeita ao 1º dia do Portugal Fashion outono/inverno 18-19, que decorreu em Lisboa, conseguimos captar tudo isto e mais umas quantas histórias
de amor, vida e origens traduzidas em coleções que nos tocaram de variadíssimas formas. Entre outros, Storytailors, Alexandra Moura, Susana Bettencourt,
Carlos Gil & TM COllection foram as casas de moda que nos fizeram pensar na moda que Coco Chanel nos ensinou - uma moda que se reflete na nossa essência 
e no que nos rodeia.

Em forma de anotação, tivemos Storytailors que nos falaram na transmutação do ser e que refletiram na sua coleção a maestria da energia universal. Por outro lado,
tivemos Alexandra Moura com um regresso às origens, onde os detalhes deram a alma ao momento. Este time-lapse foi completado por Susana Bettencourt que nos trouxe uma
clara crítica ao distânciamento entre a comunicação humana e a chegada de uma era robótica. Depois da interpelação do processo de #MachineAftrMachine da nossa época, voltamos
às várias cores que são caraterísticas da nossa percepção humana que foi protagonizada por Carlos Gil. Por fim, o dia terminou com TM Collection por Teresa Martins que nos fez beber
das águas de uma bela e rica floresta, onde a emoção foi a palavra de ordem!

Entre transmutações, time-lapse, comportamento e opções de vida, cada uma destas coleções teve uma coisa em comum: Nós - HUMANOS - o verdadeiro coração da moda, até mesmo quando falamos
de sobreposições, tendências, cores e formas! Porque, no final, o que usamos e a forma como vestimos é uma profunda extensão das nossas ações, percepções, medos e expressão.

Quelqu'un ma dit?
