In this edition, ModaLisboa has shuffled everything… and won the game. In the end, Boundless was the winner of an unprecedented bet of Lisbon’s Fashion Week. From 9th to 12th March, the Centro Cultural de Belém was the epicenter of the national fashion. Overall, around two dozen fashion shows filled up the new home of the event. “We moved to Belém, where we were kindly welcomed by CCB. These days, ModaLisboa has challenged the limits of the individual creation and explored the several ways of thinking about the networking geography of fashion and arts in the modern times”.
For three days, the most prestigious creators have presented what is done best in our country. The motto was set by Fast Talks with the theme Sustainability in Fashion.
On the opening day, the fashion shows started with the usual contest Sangue Novo, a platform that allows young designers to present their collections.
The end of this edition was marked by the announcement of a new space for October’s edition. The Spring/Summer 2018 collections will be presented on a new establishment, Pavilhão Carlos Lopes, in Lisbon.
Eureka dazzles the audience in ModaLisboa
This ModaLisboa's edition was marked by the debut of Eureka on the event’s main runway. This is the first time ever that this event has a footwear brand with its own individual fashion show.
“According to an urban approach, the collection represents a vigorous spirit, under different perspectives, by the accessories’ proportions or even by its own mood. Materials with romantic and bucolic details and embroidery work are presented side by side with military accessories. The geometric and minimalistic features are combined with bold and heavy soles. The urban sporty spirit is also included, assuming a less athletic profile and a greater details differentiation and categorization”.
In this edition, the brand from Vizela invested once again in the COxLABS, with the national designers Nuno Gama and Luís Carvalho. As in the previous editions, all ModaLisboa’s staff wore Eureka Shoes.

The exhibition took place on the inside of ModaLisboa’s social area and invited all audience to get to know the models that walked down the runway, which are a result of creative partnerships with some of the participant designers.
