It was a good day to be backstage. For one, Nuno Gama’s epic closing show was to include 80 male models, most of whom were milling about waiting for their call time. I was hardly going to complain about that. Secondly, Valentim Quaresma’s unique creations – intricate pieces of body jewellery made from clips and skulls and other curiosities – were being adorned onto bodies that were bare bar for painted-on reptilian designs. Accompanying Quaresma’s show were hairstyles of truly wondrous proportions.
