MODALISBOA AWAKE | BEYOND THE SHOWS

-  ModaLisboa,  ModaLisboa Awake

MODALISBOA AWAKE | BEYOND THE SHOWS

It’s part of ModaLisboa’s mission to be a platform that thinks Fashion as a greater discipline.  Fashion touches us every day of our lives and, in exchange, it takes us with it to offer us the future again. This is how Fashion absorbs from everything that breathes and moves. This is also how Fashion, and a Fashion event, does not confine itself to four walls.

In co-organization with Municipality of Lisbon, MODALISBOA AWAKE presents a calendar that goes beyond the shows, with a series of events open to the public and the city, in a philosophy of retribution of the vision that each person that visits Lisbon Fashion Week brings to the event. And in the desire that that vision comes back with the world within it.

MODALISBOA AWAKE. The future is in our hands.

STARTING POINT
MARCH 5 — 8
PAÇOS DO CONCELHO | MERCADO DE SANTA CLARA MARKET | OFICINAS GERAIS DE FARDAMENTO E EQUIPAMENTO DO EXÉRCITO

Being the stage of Portuguese Fashion freshness also means being the stage of art. Fashion does not exist without art. It is, therefore, natural that this stage where the talent of Portuguese Fashion designers stands has always been open to all forms of creation that complement each other, that rise up and build, together, something bigger. It is also natural that ModaLisboa is the home of new talents, of established names, of the ones who think beyond the lines. From showcases of young musicians to performances drawn from sketch to Lisbon Fashion Week, AWAKE presents, for the first time, an artistic line up that fits perfectly in it’s shows calendar. From Mike11 to Surma, without forgetting names such as Aurora Pinho Leite or Duarte Melo, MODALISBOA AWAKE is the stage of the future.

Complete performances line up, here.

UNITED FASHION LISBOA
MARCH 5 — 6
PAÇOS DO CONCELHO | MERCADO DE SANTA CLARA

This season ModaLisboa will be the host event of the UNITED FASHION project, that will bring to Lisbon an entourage of 15 European designers for an exchange of knowledge and creativity, in a behind close doors program that includes moments of networking with industry experts, buyers and press, workshops and showroom. But UNITED FASHION LISBOA is also open to the public. Not only these designers and brands will present their collections in an open event, but they will also be part of a pop-up store, that will also feature other ModaLisboa designers.  

More about the project and the designers, here.


FAST TALKS
MARCH 5
17H | PAÇOS DO CONCELHO

WAKE UP
It’s now. We can no longer press the snooze button. We can’t turn to the other side, fix the pillow and go back to sweet dreams. We are awake. And there’s much to be done: reinvent the Fashion system, integrate sustainability in every step of the process, create equitable and inclusive businesses and work environments, innovate, collaborate, use the new technologies to make sure that the future is a place where we want to live.  How do we do all of the above? That’s exactly what we will try to discover in this Fast Talks, with the stories that our speakers will bring to ModaLisboa. This is the inspiration that leads us to action.

Meet the speakers, here.

CHECK POINT

For the first time, ModaLisboa platform for talks, will host a Fashion Hackathon that will gather, over three days, a group of multidisciplinary industry thinkers – that work in areas such as innovation, programming, design, sustainability, activism or technology – to find solutions for a better future. Beyond the Hackathon, Check Point will continue to host all it’s other sessions open to the public, so the exchange of views, voices and ideas, that turn this think tank in the most effective networking platform of ModaLisboa, never ceases to exist.

WONDER ROOM is literally a wonder room. And in 2020, no space can be a wonder if it doesn’t consider others, it if doesn’t care about the planet, and if it is not thinking about the future. That is why that, in AWAKE, our pop-up store will be entirely composed with brands that take into account ethical production, that have honest values and missions and that promote a responsible consumption. In AWAKE, WONDER ROOM is wonderfully sustainable.

In October 2019 the central patio, of the Army Old Uniforms and Equipment Manufactories, was the point where all ModaLisboa meetings took place. There was conversations, laughs, gifts, music and dance. There was so much happening that the Resort and its food trucks became the heart of the space. In March 2020, we want to repeat it.
