REGISTRATION TO FAST TALKS >fasttalks.modalisboa.pt

"We believe in the idea of ecosystem, we live together in a relation of interdependence and that is why we speak of sustainability, based on its fundamental pillars: environmental, social, cultural and economic."

The proposal expressed by the Brazilian fashion designer Flávia Aranha, invited to participate in the FAST TALKS focused on the theme Fashion and Experiences, summarizes the global awareness that continues to be urgent to keep in discussion when talking about fashion. Because this debate allows us to exchange ideas, gather testimonies, intersect experiences and reflect on the challenges that designers, creatives and all the fashion interlocutors should aim to keep in order to understand the dynamics and the public in the future.

In this edition, MODALISBOA INSIGHT proposes the FAST TALKS - FASHION AND EXPERIENCES debate, inviting four industry practitioners with national and international recognition to describe the relevance of their experience in the design and creation of fashion or fashion brands. On the stage of the newly opened Carpintarias de São Lázaro, on March 7, at 6:00 p.m., Catherine da Silveira, Flávia Aranha, Julien da Costa and Miguel Bento will be moderated by the creative Joana Barrios.

Catherine da Silveira teaches Fashion & Luxury Marketing and Brand management in NOVA School of Business and Economics and is a board member of Ach Brito SA.

Flávia Aranha, a Brazilian designer who opened her first store in Lisbon in late 2018, has the natural dyeing technique as the focus of her brand.

Julien da Costa is a fashion reporter and works with director Loïc Prigent in various fashion shows on French national television. He has extensive experience creating video content for Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld and Fendi.

Miguel Bento, a Portuguese set designer living in London, has collaborated with renowned photographers and brands such as Chanel, Nike, Mulberry, Hermés, Adidas, McQueen and Salvatore Ferragamo.

From the Carpintarias of São Lázaro we move to the Checkpoint Space, outside the Pavilhão Carlos Lopes. From March 8th to 10th, Checkpoint presents an event agenda that celebrates the creativity, innovation and collaborative spirit of the fashion industry. Flávia Aranha’s master classes about her work as a designer; Jessica Michault’s on fashion and social media communication; João Meneses and Mafalda Evangelista’s (Business Council for Sustainable Development) on sustainability and digital transformation; and finally the master class of Ayres Gonçalo on tailoring.

On 10th March at 4:30pm, in partnership with Ecoolhunter by Jornal ECO, the SPEAKERS CORNER presents innovative projects that are making a difference or can give a new perspective on the future of fashion. 

From 8th to 10th of March, between 2:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m., the Bolha Atelier Live will be a space for creation, collaboration and multidisciplinary exchange between the members of the project “A Avó Veio Trabalhar” and some artists invited to customise a piece during the event.

Days 7, 8, 9 and 10 of March we want to turn our gaze outwards at the heart of fashion, realize what kind of production is made, what kind of consumers we are, what legacy we will leave behind. 

What we see – is it really what it is?
