António Castro Fall/Winter 2019-20 – EXPERIMENT 3

#ModaLisboa – INSIGHT – THE WORKSTATION! Designer António Castro is our #onetowatch designer from the fashion fest in Portugal. António was born in Lisbon in 1993. He graduated in Textile Design at Central Saint Martins in London in 2016.

I am obsessed with his designs, what a talent. He interned with Lidija Kolovrat in Lisbon in 2012 and Trend Union / Li Edelkoort in Paris in 2017. Currently lives in Paris, where he works for Maison Margiela, in the textile department of the Artisanal collection. In parallel, he is responsible for the hand weavings of John Alexander Skelton’s collections in London.

Experiment 3 is directed to flâneuses and flâneurs. It encourages the spirit of wonder, eccentric role-play and the constant observation of society. These characters are not just street strollers but they become important participants in society. They are the painter and at the same time the painting.
