These figures confirm and reiterate the commitment of the new direction of the ANJE, organizer of the event, with the promotion of Portuguese fashion, nationally and internationally.

This means – according to Manuel Lopes Teixeira, of the address of the event – “Portugal Fashion will continue contributing to the competitiveness of the fashion industry, boosting factors such as design, innovation, quality, brand, trade efficiency and the distribution capacity. In this case, Portugal Fashion will continue to be an impulse of a tradable goods sector and with large export capacity, as it is that of the textile, clothing and footwear. Moreover, we hope to deepen the internationalization strategy of the event, in a time in which the external market assumes a crucial importance for the future of the Portuguese economy. “The international aspect of the Portugal Fashion will continue to be one of the main lines of action of the project, translated not only in the production of parades in the great capitals of fashion, but also in the Organization of showrooms and in contacts with purchasing agents”.

On the other hand, Portugal Fashion held at this 34th Edition to one of its greatest international delegations. Approximately one hundred foreign guests, mostly journalists and purchasing agents viewed this latest edition. “Dominated by the citizens of Europe, but there is also a significant presence of American guests. The participation of so many journalists and foreign buyers is a clear sign of the internationalization of the Portugal Fashion, event that accompanies this way growing orientation of the fashion industry to the external markets. We have seen a constant rise of exports of textiles, apparel and footwear Portuguese, also of part of the promotional side of the passerelle to exist an effort in this regard”, emphasizes Manuel Lopes Teixeira, adding:”I would like to remind that Portugal Fashion has a long history of organization of fashion shows abroad, like those held in Paris, London Madrid and Scandinavia, stressing that only last February, he was in Paris and London”.

The same manager highlights that “Portugal Fashion has contributed decisively to the change of the paradigm of development of the fashion industry. Under the sponsorship of the event, industry and creators have evolved together in the sense of a clear commitment on the critical factors of competitiveness, such as quality, innovation, design, distribution, among others. It is clear that bet has not been won completely. However, the textile and clothing sector is currently better equipped to compete in the international market, as you can see by the increased export growth and the added value of their products”.

The motto of this 34th Edition of the Portugal Fashion was “Organic”. This concept was held as organism alive, pulsing and unique fashion. In this sense, an attempt to highlight and enhance the organic interaction of elements that, more or less chaotically, it triggers the artistic creation in different fields, mainly in the fashion. It should take into account that the Portugal Fashion is currently, in itself, a body that brings together and boiling various contemporary aesthetic expressions, from the design of fashion to the remaining creative industries, not to mention artistic traditional activities such as Visual Arts, music, photography and video.

Portugal Fashion is a project responsibility of the ANJE – National Association of young businessmen in collaboration with ATP – Association textile and clothing of Portugal, being currently funded by the QREN within the scope of the Compete program – program operational factors of competitiveness.
