Tiago LoureiroWorkstation

Tiago Loureiro, 27, was born in Lisbon in 1991. He has a degree in Fashion Design at Universidade da Beira Interior, Covilhã, and frequented the Master in the same area at Faculdade de Arquitetura, Lisboa. After the internships at Lidija Kolovrat atelier and Grupo Diniz & Cruz, he launched his own brand BANDA at ModaLisboa (Lisbon Fashion Week), where he presented design capsules during five consecutive seasons.

In 2015, Tiago was nominated for Prémios Novos (Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian) for best New Fashion Designer. In 2017 he assumes his own name with a capsule called Nome (Name), presented at Wonder Room. Also in 2017, he designed the costumes for Ressaca, by the choreographer David Marques, which was nominated for the Autores 2018 awards by SPA, as the best choreography in the Dance category.

His designs are driven by his views on society and politics, with subtly graphic aesthetics and emphasis on draped fabrics.
