The second day of the 44th Portugal Fashion starts today at 15:00 in the Customs of Porto with the collection “Article 1”, by designer Inês Torcato, and ends with the ‘Winter in Africa’ parade by Miguel Vieira.
Ines Torcato said that her new collection for the next cold season will have more than 20 unisex coordinates and the inspiration comes from Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, “especially on the issue of gender equality.”
“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in the spirit of brotherhood”, can be read in article 1 of the declaration.
The second day is followed by Sara Maia (15:00), Estelita Mendonça (16:00), Sophia Kah, and Ana Teixeira de Sousa (17:00), which takes the collection “Tiger Souls “after having premiered in London last February.
At 6:00 pm, Katty Xiomara presents “Maria Mimosa”, a tribute collection to the character “Hello Kitty”, the cat that was born in 1974, the same year as the designer.
According to Xiomara, the new collection dedicated to women also tries to raise consumer awareness for the durability of the pieces.
After the presentations of the brands Pé de Chumbo (19:00) and TM Teresa Martins (20:00), the evening of the second day of this Portugal Fashion ends with the designers’ parades Diogo Miranda (21:30), Luís Buchinho (22: 30) and Miguel Vieira (23:30).
