Daniela Barros and João Melo Costa astonished the British and all the others that were gathered at Freemasons Hall to see the autumn-winter 2014/2015 collections of these two young talents.

In a room full of paintings of British royalty, from Edward Augustus, Marquis of Hastings, to the Duke of Sussex, Augustus Frederick, Daniela Barros and João Melo Costa showed that they have fashion’s royal blood running in their veins in a fashion show integrated in Fashion Scout, a platform for new talents.

Overcoats and skirts with asymmetrical cuts, frayed seams and some rips revealed the warrior imagined by Daniela Barros. «Dalka is the name of one of the women who were warriors at samurai’s period», explained the Portuguese designer about this collection, which follows the line of the previous one, with geometric patterns and overlays, «even though more defined», she points.

For the next cold season, in terms of materials, more technological fabrics joined forces with natural and noble raw materials, like silk, creating a powerful and at the same time, extremely feminine silhouette.

And this collection is, in fact, the most intimate and personal of all», reveals the young designer.

Jackets of masculine inspiration but with feminine elements to contrast, like crystals, baggy trousers cut above the ankle, double fabrics and even some pompoms coming out of sweaters and skirts, are elements that take part of the proposals, carefully crafted until the last detail. «It’s a collection that explores the textile part in a very rich way, with different materials and various treatment and manipulation textile techniques being used», summarizes João Melo Costa.

A work that deserved the applause and admiration of the audience, judging by the many exclamations of «fabulous collections! » he heard when he left Freemasons Hall.
