• FAST TALKS: STREET X FASHION

Fashion in its generality does not end in the proposals presented by the designers and in what is seen at the passerelle. Fashion is also the fashion that is thought through and imagined in Fast Talks; that is discussed and debated with professionals and specialists; that does not rule out anything or anyone and that summons every single one of its interpreters and actors. Fashion that constantly invites you to challenge on its own activity, identity, roots and destiny. Fashion that every year tosses its relationship with other creation and production activities, and that seeks to know the new paths to be followed.

This is the fashion that Modalisboa knows and works for years. The fashion that leads us to question the present in order to project the future, and that gathers, in every edition, creators and consumers, trendsetters and opinion makers, to find trends, document the moment, interpret the zeitgeist and understand the height of fashion industry.

MODALISBOA MULTIPLEX brings six national and international speakers together for the discussion FAST TALKS: STREET X FASHION, reflecting about the streetwear influence in design of fashion. The talk moderator is Joana Barrios.
