Here in Portugal we were all anxiously waiting for the frenzy to start, and finally Lisbon Fashion Week is upon us.

Yesterday, day 1 started with the Fast Talks, and it was an incredible end of day for me to listen to so many different and interesting ideas and experiences. Below you can find the amazing and inspiring guests from this Fast Talks.

Alfredo Orobio had an amazing idea, and a very innovative vision in my opinion, and yesterday he introduced us to his brand AWAYTOMARS,  the first online platform, supported by a group of trustees, to promote design-thinking, co-creation, crowd funding and profit sharing with the creative and consumer community. Worth seeing!

Very elegant and friendly, Isabel Costa told us about her unconventional career, but a brilliant one in my opinion. Isabel began to study law, but the fashion career spoke louder and Isabel turned out to be a model, fashion editor, fashion consultant and buyer. Today with an enviable resume in the fashion business, Isabel created a delicious and elegant blog about food, fashion and lifestyle. I’m already addict to this woman and her Blog.

I met Mónica a year ago, at the Catolica Lisbon University where she coordinates the Executive Program “Luxury Brand Management”.  The program was a success as everything that Mónica does, it was a intense and incredible week, I had a lot of fun, plus I learned a lot from the best in the luxury area. So of course this was not my first time hearing Mónica, but it´s always a pleasure to hear her speak about luxury, that Monica knows so much about. If you are interest in the luxury market you have to meet this top expert in this area.
