You never quite know what you’re going to get when it comes time for Olga Noronha to bring her unique creative vision to the ModaLisboa runway. This season it was a collection of wearable sculptures that referenced the ocean: fish-fins and coral had clearly been twisting around in Noronha’s mind before emerging from her hands as armour-like accessories from the deep. As always her use of materials was unusual and far-reaching, with freshwater pearls, gemstones, crystals, coral and gold leaf shaping the pieces alongside the skins of cod, salmon and perch.
At the gallery, a front-row view of some of Olga’s key pieces.
