Lis­boa Fash­ion Week

  • Call


Lis­boa, Euro­pean Green Cap­i­tal in 2020, is the city of light and rec­og­nized inter­na­tion­al­ly for its cool vibe and gen­uine lifestyle. The city has a unique mix between his­to­ry and moder­ni­ty and is three hours away from the Por­tuguese man­u­fac­tur­ing area in the dis­trict of Por­to. Lis­boa Fash­ion Week is known for its long-term sup­port of young tal­ents and inde­pen­dent fash­ion and will host Unit­ed Fash­ion in a spe­cial pro­gram ded­i­cat­ed to mak­ing, inno­va­tion and sustainability.


Look­ing for young design­ers with inno­v­a­tive DNA and a for­ward-think­ing approach. Ded­i­cat­ed to fash­ion – wom­enswear, menswear, no-gen­der – col­lec­tions. Brands that mix appar­el and acces­sories are wel­come. Acces­sories lines are not eli­gi­ble. The design­ers are required to have two years set up expe­ri­ence and FW2021 see now buy now col­lec­tions. The action will include pri­vate moments b2b for buy­ers and press, but also activ­i­ties to sell direct­ly to the pub­lic. Only one col­lec­tion is required – FW2021 – but design­ers must ensure part of the col­lec­tion is ready to sell imme­di­ate­ly, so some dupli­cates are mandatory.

Unit­ed Fash­ion in Lis­boa is orga­nized in two fronts. On one hand, a pro­gram with work­shops, mas­ter-class­es and knowl­edge shar­ing cen­tered on the top­ic of pro­duc­tion and address­ing ques­tions on mak­ing, sus­tain­abil­i­ty and know-how. In par­al­lel, the select­ed design­ers will be able to present the col­lec­tion in show­room and show­case the col­lec­tions through a fash­ion pre­sen­ta­tion in the con­text of Lis­boa Fash­ion Week. This call is orga­nized in the frame­work of the Unit­ed Fash­ion project. It is car­ried out by 7 orga­ni­za­tions active in the fash­ion sec­tor all over Europe and sup­port­ed by the Cre­ative Europe pro­gram of the EU.
