Lisboa Fashion Week
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.
