Unit­ed Fash­ion event: Lis­boa Fash­ion Week 

Based in sun­ny Por­tu­gal but first­ly imag­ined in India, BÉHEN believes in fash­ion being waist­less and in one-off clothes made of antique tex­tiles or tex­tiles weaved with the mag­ic of time in far­away lands. A brand born to be a sto­ry­teller, it tells the tales of women singing in hin­di and danc­ing under Rajasthan’s sun. Women who step on the Por­tuguese side­walk with saudade’ on their chest. Women who saw the sun­rise in Syr­ia but don’t close their eyes to dark­ness. Women who want to change the world. Clothes eth­i­cal­ly made by women com­mu­ni­ties around the world sup­port­ing Syr­i­an boy’s and girl’s education.
