If you are wandering through the tv channels late at night be careful with what you can find. Beware for lost zombies.

I’m now part of the TV documentary series ARMÁRIO, directing episodes 4 to 13. ARMÁRIO is a show about fashion that is not closed in a closet, it’s broad, funny and political, it entertains and makes you think (hopefully 😬). With the great Joana Barrios.
The first episode (directed by me) is about the history of Fashion Weeks, where did they come from, what are they for, and who are they for? It screens November 17 on RTP2
