HUGO COSTA AW18


After London Fashion Week Men I had the pleasure to spend some days in Paris during Paris Fashion Week. If you already follow me on Instagram, you may have had a hint of my time there. Despite a rainy and cloudy weather, I really enjoyed my Parisian days. I had the chance to attend several shows, some designers I do love and I that I have been following for a while now. And I also attended shows of new gems, just like Hugo Costa with his AW18 Presentation. Hugo Costa may be new for the French capital, but he has already shown his collections since 2010 at Bloom, Portugal Fashion's young designers' platform, and then he made his debut at Portugal Fashion's main runway in 2015.

His AW18 Collection, (A)WAY FROM PUNK, was literally a pleasure to draw. I particularly loved the bold colour palette and volumes. Plus the models were more than lovely and have been very helpful while I was sketching them!

For this season Hugo Costa collaborated also with eyewear brand Cus Cuz Design on a great line of sunglasses which were quite inspiring and fun to sketch.

Thank you very much for having me! You can also check this Instagram post for a little video of the show.
