The last day of Moda Lisboa was a continuity of a spectacular fashion show, Daniel Diniz, a Portuguese designer, started off with a different kind of show. Male models came down the catwalk in bathing trunks and started to dress up in front of the public. The summer collection of Diniz is based on white, gray, and ecru colors but includes Portuguese inspiration through tons of blue, connected to the traditional and famous decor of cities around Portugal. The clothes combined comfort and lightness for men the next summer.
The next collection, creations by Marques’Almeida, presented a relaxed and young look for women based on street style. The blue tones and white contrast were predominant in the oversized clothes with distinct silhouette mainly in denin, cotton and silk.
Following the schedule, Katty Xiomara brought a feminine collection inspired by butterflies to women, displayed through the movements and flow in dresses and skirts, colors, mainly orange, yellow, white, black, gray and nude tons, and marked belt. She offered an amazing show full of elegance and class for the next spring/summer season.
Glamour is without doubt the best word for the runway of Miguel Vieira. Men and women in preparation of an elegant trip were the inspiration of the designer. White was combined with gold details or in the case of the men’s wear, a colorful touch.
