modalisboa core2


In co-organization with the Municipality of Lisbon, ModaLisboa reaches its 60th edition. From the 9th to the 12th of March 2023, we return to Lisboa Social Mitra, space of the Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa, to celebrate our CORE.

Lisboa Fashion Week will continue to build a platform for communication, visibility and empowerment of Portuguese Fashion, through presentations, happenings and fashion shows. But honoring the number 60 will always have to imply the amplification of our action — even when that opening means looking inward, and giving voice to what we are. So we stripped away all the other layers, edited it down to the core, and built an event on the plurality of our essence.

We decided not to conceptualize the word we chose for the 60th edition, and let the core do it. The Fast Talks, and the entire Lisbon Fashion Week, will be the construction of this theme, carried out by the Designers themselves. Their words, visions, voices, manifestos. The result will be a text published after MODALISBOA CORE, written by as many hands as those that make up our calendar. We don’t know if it will be harmonious, if it will gravitate towards solutions or if it will provide context for the future. We know, however, that it will be ours. And that, being ours, is from Portuguese Fashion.

MODALISBOA CORE. At the core, the construction.
