ModaLisboa is a multidisciplinary project focused on the promotion and development of Portuguese fashion design. Founded in 1991, in partnership with Lisbon Municipality, it is a platform that brings together fashion shows, conferences, workshops, mentoring and exhibitions, designed for national and international audiences and markets. It has a clear mission of raising awareness in the community for sustainability, inclusion and transparency, and it promotes the growth of fashion in Portugal through partnerships with the industry and continued work in conjunction with sectorial associations. Lisboa Fashion Week is Associação ModaLisboa's main project and, more than a Fashion Week, it works as an aggregator and engine for discovering young talent, which it educates, encourages and communicates through platforms such as Sangue Novo | Young Designers Competition, Workstation and LAB.
ModaLisboa - Lisboa Fashion Week is ModaLisboa’s main project in partnership with the Municipality of Lisbon, and is the fashion event with greater recognition in Portugal.

ModaLisboa - Lisboa Fashion Week is a meeting point, gathering multiple audiences, opinion leaders and trend setters.
