The biggest event in Portuguese fashion, Moda Lisboa, took place from 8 - 12 March 2017 at the newly renovated Pavilhão Carlos Lopes. This year, the fashion week celebrated its 50th edition and it won't be an exaggeration to say that it was better than ever before.

From all-black looks at Aleksandar Protic to futuristic plastic details at David Ferreira and Imauve, Autumn/Winter 2018-19 season will be highly inspiring, bold, and creative. Let's have a look at some of the most memorable fashion trends presented at the event!

1. New Romantic

Pastels (often combined with darker colours), soft lines, white blouses, slip dresses, plush velvet, satin, lace up, puff sleeves, ruffles, and moody florals – that's New Romantics trend in a nutshell.

According to Fashion Snoops, "the New Romantic woman believes in leveraging the past to bring us closer to the future". Key accessories include pearl earrings, fishnet stockings, statement ring set, embellished mini bag, optical cat eye, and updated Mary Janes.

This fashion trend (shown mainly through clothes, not accessories) was present in many collections for Autumn/Winter 2018-19 including Duarte, Filipe Faísca, Carolina Machado, and Ricardo Preto.

"The most out-there trend of 2018 is transparency, or plastic to be particular", says The Guardian and we couldn't agree more.

From transparent boots at Imauve to ultra-bold tops at Luís Carvalho and see-through coats at David Ferreira, this futuristic trend seemed to be quite popular with Portuguese designers.

3. Statement (faux) Fur

From fur trims, sleeves, collars, tippets, scarves and stoles, to statement jackets and coats – all (faux) fur lovers will be able to choose something for themselves next season.

Our favourite looks included elegant black fur details at David Ferreira, stylish white stoles at Imauve, and feminine coats at Luís Carvalho.

4. Black Is The New Black

Classic black was seen in many Autumn/Winter 2018-19 collections including Aleksandar Protic who presented all-black looks, Federico Cina (black mixed with bright red), Isidro Paiva (black combined with white or brown), Carolina Machado (thigh high boots and black accessories), and David Ferreira (black fishnets and voluminous sleeves).

Eye-catching colour combinations such as black with golden beige and apricot orange could be seen at Dino Alves show. The versatile Autumn/Winter collection featured a lot of hats and colourful sunglasses as well.

5. Kaleidoscope Of Colours

Some designers went in a totally opposite direction and presented bold colourful looks featuring colours traditionally associated with spring such as pink, bright red or yellow.

While in many of those collections colour was taking centre stage, some of them were also enriched with the use of unique prints and patterns (Awaytomars, Kolovrat).

If you are not sure how to wear this trend, there is only one rule that applies: use your imagination and mix various colours and patterns together. The brighter, the better!

Kaia on Fire

Cindy Crawford's look-alike, protégé daughter, has become a fiery force to reckon with. At just 16, Kaia Gerber has achieved huge milestones in her modelling career, and shared platforms with those ahead of her in years and experience - such as Kendall Jenner, Joan Smalls and Anna Ewers. Something tells me Gerber is going to have a rather long and successful career.

To celebrate her debut catwalk appearance at this season's Calvin Show, here are some of Gerber's most noted accomplishments that put her on the map to leave a legacy, just like her mama. Cindy Crawford must be the proudest model mum!
