André Santos is a fashion designer mainly inspired by Pop culture, which he usually manipulates critically and satirically. This approach, intertwined with his own imaginary and aesthetic, creates the raw material for his collections.
André Santos is a designer who wants to give voice to emerging situations in society, with a special focus on the present diversity in the definition of personal identities.
After graduating in theater and pattern making, it was the willingness to express himself through clothing that led him to enter the Fashion Design course at Modatex – Lisboa.

VENUS AS A BOY!
The parameters that define masculinity are not immutable and are constantly evolving. “Venus as a Boy” intends to explore a new form of masculinity, a masculinity beyond the stereotype of color and beyond gender labels. It is an exploration of male sensibility through the sensualization of the body and the softness of shapes, colors and fabrics.
“Venus as a Boy” is a manifesto against old-fashioned standards previously established by society, and it seeks to open doors to new forms of individual expression.
