Designer Spotlight : Fatima Lopes

I love act of discovery – designs, people and places just because. Recently while surfing the internet – as usual – I discovered an incredibly creative brand – Fatma Lopes. I rarely, get a feeling of instant attraction to fashion designs , it grows on me after several collection previews, runway shows and street credibility/style of the brand. But on this beautiful day I discovered yet another charming designer who impressed me at first sight. Fatima Lopez’s designs are simply remarkable! F├ítima Lopes, ComIH is a Portuguese fashion designer who showed an interest in fashion at a young age and decided during her adolescence to design her own clothes. Fatima Lopez’s collections are diversified into bags and shoes for both men and women.
In December 1998, she started the management of the model agency "FACE MODELS" in Lisbon. In the year 2000 she caused a media sensation by appearing on a catwalk herself in Paris wearing the world's most expensive bikini, made out of gold and diamonds, with an estimated value of one million dollars. In 2003 she opened her first brand store in the United States, located in Melrose Avenue in the city of Los Angeles.
She worked on the design of the official suit of the 2006 Portuguese football World Cup team. More on Fatima Lopez soon!
