ModaLisboa S/S18 – #LUZ! Womenswear designer David Ferreira unveiled his Spring / Summer 2018 collection KARYUKAI FATUM on a sunny afternoon in Lisbon. The new collection marries the Geisha and Fado, realms together, creating a parallel world of perfection, beauty and feelings. Geishas and Fado are two of the most mysterious and captivating art forms, hidden within the prostitution ring and created as entertainment for the status elite. Expression and perfection balance the “Karyūkai Fatum” collection, to create unique, structural, and seductive silhouettes that range from fitted to oversized pieces.
David Ferreira used a luxurious collection of silk chiffon, tulle, and crepe satin fabrics with a variety of blue and pink hues grounded by rich gold and striking black and red tones. He finishes his Geisha’s vision with exotic ostrich feather embellishments and extravagant trims that really create the world of the “Karyūkai Fatum” collection.
Founded by David Ferreira in 2015, the singular Lisbon-based brand immediately won enormous demand and became distinguished outside the capital city. David enjoys boundless creations, each idea is carried out and explored to appeal to the taste of uncommon women, who trust their own style and are particularly fond of clothes that work as an extention of themselves, linking the fine line between fashion and art.
David Ferreira celebrates the unparalleled beauty, the individuality of each human being, emphasising the fact that uniqueness represents luxury’s true meaning.
David Ferreira’s pieces play with the shape of the woman’s silhouette, creating a visual poetry that blurs the lines between elegance and grotesque. He worked for designers such as Iris Van Herpen, Meadham Kirchhoff and Giles Deacon which shaped his culture, skills and techniques in order to unfurl brand new silhouettes embodying a modern vision of the Couture concept.
Defining uniqueness as the true meaning of luxury, Ferreira portraits the feeling of holding uniqueness in the highest regards.
