Exquisite Clothing at MUDE Lisbon

Don’t forget to check out Portuguese Design in MUDE Lisbon if you missed my previous post about MUDE.

I have always wanted to use the word “exquisite” when describing something, and this is the right time to do it. In the second exhibition, From Matrix to Sleeping Beauty, I visited at the Museum, I saw some EXQUISITE (!) outfits designed by António Lagarto.

From Matrix to Sleeping Beautyentering

Set designer, costume designer and artist, António Lagarto (Trafaria, 1948) is the author of a vast work that includes photography and cinema, design and illustration, exhibition design and interior architecture. Graduate in Sculpture with a Master degree in Environmental Media, António Lagarto first began by exploring the fields of performance and installation.

From Matrix to Sleeping Beauty gives the opportunity to know the work of António Lagarto as a costume designer, presenting a selection of almost 300 pieces (clothing, hair props, jewellery and shoes) that have been worn by some of the most important actors, actresses and dancers to embody several characters of the national and international dramaturgical universe.
