A lasting Utopia is one that promotes sustainable growth. As such, this is the key concern for the Portuguese fashion designers comprising ‘BLOOM’. The installation is realised using eco-friendly cork – native to Portugal – in partnership with Amorim.

This ideal world straddles the line between natural and artificial, a reflection of the designers’ attention to the re-use of materials and development of new techniques in the hope of achieving a socially-conscious fashion ecosystem that is both individual and global in its reach.
