Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.

Unlike the shows of Milan or Paris, which change venues as often as a diva changes outfits, Portugal Fashion in Porto takes it’s time sprawling slowly across three venues in three days. Day 2 was housed solely amidst the neo-classical pulchritude of the Palácio da Bolsa, where the ornate ceilings of the backstage area drew your eye away from even the most dramatic of hairstyles…
