This week ARMÁRIO s02e09 is about technology in fashion. We will talk about textiles that mimic pine cones, apple leather, kombucha, digital fashion, and clothes that can read your mind. To know more about this Joana Barrios talked with Alexandra Farah, Alfredo Orobio, Gabriela Forman and Francisco Teixeira. You can see it January 26th on RTP2.
This weekend ARMÁRIO s02e07 will talk about the color black. Why do fashion designers dress in black? And who are the masters of black? Is black a sad color? Is it the color of rebellion? To help us answer these questions Joana Barrios talked to Anabela Becho, João Vairinhos, Miguel Flor and Pedro Augusto. Black is back. 🖤 You can see it January 12th on RTP2.
On the third episode of ARMÁRIO S02, we’ll be super zen, meditating about the concept of Wellness. But, as you can see in the picture, our brains are wired, electricity goes through our heads and we think that maybe we don’t have to be in peace… In this episode Joana Barrios talks about this concepts with Graça Castanheira, Pureza Fleming and Satya. It will screen November 17th at 20h on RTP2.
This sunday, on the second episode of ARMÁRIO S02, we’ll talk about the History of portuguese fashion after the revolution, through the work of Fashion Journalist and Stylist: Paulo Gomes.

It starts like this ⬆️ and it ends like this ⬇️ COULD BE WORSE: THE MUSICAL is a theatre show that I co-created with the theatre company Cão Solteiro. It’s a musical sang by non-professional singers with original music by PZ and Vaiapraia. It will sound good enough, I promise. Could it be better? Yes, definitely, but it surely could be worse. We’ll premiere November 7th in Porto’s Nacional Theatre São João.
Season 2 of ARMÁRIO, the tv documentary series about fashion that I’m directing, is premiering this sunday, November 3rd.

Theatre company Estrutura will be 10 years old and they’re throwing a PARTY!
My gift for them, is an alternative ending for the show we did in 2017, THE END, a new ending that says: this is not the end. Because our love is neverending.
PARTY will be at Teatro do Campo Alegre, September 29th and 30th. More info here.
Joacine Katar Moreira is the first black woman to be the face of a party in Portugal. And we need her in parliament. ✊🏾 So we created this hymn for LIVRE (Joacine’s party), with music by Fado Bicha ft. Telma Tvon (written by André e. Teodósio and Lila Fadista, produced by Xinobi), video directed by me and posters by Francisco Vidal. ✊🏿 It’s our party and we dance if we want to! ✊🏼 Vote LIVRE!
