Launch of TCA Men’s Couture
Militopia is inspired by the uniforms worn by the Hungarian army during the Second World War due to the high level of detail of this uniform, but careful attention has been paid to the cut, bringing a fresh feel to tailoring.
Teresa Cruz Almeida says “I’m so happy with the success of this event, I’ve always known that there is a market for my style and tonight’s comments and feedback after the show really proves this. I love to experiment, and have taken all I have learnt at Antonio de Arroio about men’s design and the male body, material structure at t university Politecnico de Setubal socialising on the drag scene in Lisbon to create a collection that blurs lines between masculinity and femininity, and adds another dimension to men’s fashion. I draw on a wide range of stimuli to design and this means I am always pushing boundaries. I wouldn’t have been able to do the show without the support of my models, the Shadow Lounge, Fashion Capital and my hair and make-up experts.
