Portuguese designer stages funeral party
Life and Death was the name of a collection shown at the Lisbon Fashion Week by the Oporto based designer V!itor. That was what he calls the Funeral. Now, this designer based in OPorto will give attendants the opportunity to engage in a piteous mourning during a themed dinner where the designer himself promises to play the deadman’s part.
But don’t take this as a farewell like the staged death of Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust. This dinner party which will take place at Miss OPO, Rua dos Caldeireiros nº 100 in OPorto on April 22 is a new way to see V!itor’s collection and a step further in this restless designer’s career.
Besides the dinner and performance there will be also a Pop Up store where you can acquire some prototypes, special editions and reproductions of items from the designer’s previous collections shown at the Lisbon Fashion Week, including pré-ordering of the Autumn/Winter funeral collection Life and Death shown last March at Moda Lisboa. Book now and eat and buy later. For further information and reservations write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
