Fish skins and fins: at Olga Noronha

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…

Peeping through holes or from under short hemlines as the boys walked the runway, the penises found themselves publicly free. If the #freethenipple…

The collection featured 19 ethnic-inspired prints, with tropical and Peruvian prints as the highlights. Unique shapes saw folded-down waistlines mimicking an unzipped wetsuit, short-length bodysuits, and…
