Fatima Lopes

Lopes was part of three Portugese designesrs showing at Paris Fashion Week. Her collection seem to draw inspiration from a jungle theme. Filled with bright and bold print and colors, her collection “Luxuriant Paradise” was a combination of curve hugging and asymetrical pieces.

Unfortunately, I did not get to attend the show due to the overwhelming crowd and the lack of space at the venue. Even though we had an invitation, it seems that things were sketchy to say the least. Well, I chose not to dwell on the fact that there was no room in the show and I awaited patiently while conversing with a fellow acquaintance from London. I had just seen her at LFW and now here in Paris, so we stay behind chating about the stories from last week and shows to go. It’s always interesting seeing how people react to things. There are those people that loose the coolness and make a fuzz about not getting into a show, there are those that scam their way into the show. There are so many stories unfolding right infront of my eyes and to be honest, I really enjoyed staying behind to document this experience. More about it in a future blog.For now I’ll leave you with the pictures we got, thanks to our amazing team of photographers we were at least able to cover that part of the show.

We can infer it was very colorful and festive. Below I’ll leave the looks for SS13 for this designer.


The first look is an open slit dress with asymetrical lines. The one 3/4 long sleeve in a stretchy material. The print and colors are very bright, aquamarine tones and slight purples.

Next, a model wearing a body fitting dress with 2 slits on the front with the same patterns and tones.

A short dress in green tones and abstract print, along the strapless knee length two slit mustard/shiny metalic tones dress. Followed by more tight curve-hugginh combinations.

A pants ensamble was also featured at this collection, as seen on the pictures the black pants with pleats were a little below the knee in a trend for the season. The ultra bright top was also silluette hugging. Accesories were also present. Flowers moulded in belts and necklaces and as part of the shoe decorations. A good play in bold colors and tropical prints were the staple for this collection.
