Fátima Lopes at Its Best

It was a debut for Fátima Lopes. The most international of Portuguese designers made, for the first time, a parade in Portimão, Saturday June 28, in the gardens of the Pestana Dom João II Hotel.

“Fátima Lopes 2008” was a fashion show designed by the creator for the four seasons this year – from bikinis, bathing suits and everyday models to sophisticated and dazzling couture dresses.

Fiona, Anne Li Lauren and Carla Matadinho and 27 models of Face Models have presented 100 proposals, revealing trends that will warm up in the coming months. The passage also included male models.

Textures, colors, cuts, materials – from silks to lace and Swarovski crystals – and accessories “Fátima Lopes 2008” – bags, shoes and jewelry, among others – seduced and surprised, in what will be the only models this summer.

The surprises, incidentally, did not remain for the creations of the stylist. The host of SIC Radical Solange, who recently assumed her homosexuality, debuted on the passerelle and did very well.

Soccer player Raul Meireles watched the parade in the company of his wife, Ivone, and daughter Lara. The couple will marry again during the month of July and will use in the ceremony models specially designed by the breeder. The little Lara will also dress, on the day of the parents’ wedding, a dress made by Fátima Lopes.

In September, Fátima Lopes will make her 20th trip to Paris, integrated in the week of prêt-a-porter.
