SS 21

"A crew of Portuguese girls will bring Marques’Almeida’s spring 2021 collection to the world from Porto, Portugal, on the historic banks of the river Duoro today, opening a window on the designers’ outlook on doing fashion better. “We’re doing it in downtown Porto, overlooking the riverside, where the port wine cellars are. It’s an outside space that’s just been opened up, where there’s going to be a fashion museum,” says Marta Marques. “We’ve got a huge open-air backstage [area], so all the models and crew will be safe—and we’re only doing eye makeup, so the girls can wear masks while everyone’s prepping.”"
