BLOOM: SUN, ENERGY, TECHNOLOGY
BLOOM is a project developed by Portugal Fashion to discover and promote new Portuguese designers. For a second year, Portugal’s exhibition at the International Fashion Showcase will be under Bloom moniker, promoting the work of five designers.
Continuing from last year’s greenhouse, – where spectators could observe the stages of the designer’s growth and development, – this year’s exhibition will show the development of the organic greenhouse in a more technological way.
Elements that sustain and promote artificial growth will be embraced. The energy of the sun is the heart of this installation as the driving force for the growth of this new technological movement and the catalyst for nurturing talent.
The exhibition is designed Miguel Bento in collaboration with NU.AS Architects and project managed by Mario Quina and Marlene Oliveira.
Designers include: Carla Pontes, Hugo Costa, João Melo Costa, KLAR, Mafalda Fonseca
