Portugal fashion

“Welcome to my wonderland” parade


The first SLK designs fashion show took place at Fortaleza da Luz in Praia da Luz in the Algarve on November 20th.

It was a successful event despite the weather and the Fortaleza da Luz was such a beautiful setting for the show as we had the backdrop of the beach behind the Catwalk. Everyone who watched the show seemed in awe of the hard work and incredible talent of designer Sarah-Louise Koessler with her extraordinary “Welcome to Wonderland” show which brought to life five exceptional dresses and a costume that were modeled eloquently.

For those who do not already know SLK Designs, it is a high fashion brand located in the Algarve, Portugal. “The brand aims to create breathtaking pieces that give the wearer the feeling of being empowered. “

“SLK offers both avant-garde luxury Haute Couture and a diffusion line with ready-to-wear pieces, which you can find online.

This journey started with SLK Designs commissioned by Swarovski for their “Wonderlab – Ignite your dream” ad, SLK Designs is now collaborating with Swarovski to create this new impact Couture collection. Sarah-Louise’s first official runway show featured SLK designs from the Spring / Summer 22 couture collection, sponsored by Swarovksi. The show is titled “Welcome to my Wonderland” and is a glimpse into the creator’s “creative world of fantasy”.

Further, she said: “My designs are more than clothes; I see them as wearable art and I feel like life is pretty serious so I think we need a little whimsy in our life. Each piece is special and took hours to make, each piece of clothing has a story and I decided to name each piece after someone who helped me along the way, so the looks were called: Jasmine, Lynn, Tatiana, Daria, Natalie, Karen (his mother) and Ana. All six looks were enhanced by sparkling Swarovski crystals which complemented the collection perfectly. All of the looks were enchanting and captivating and were designed with such skill, transporting me to a fantasy world. During Sarah-Louise’s speech, she said she was grateful that she was able to sponsor her with crystals.

It was a great opportunity to see Sarah-Louise’s collection come together in person and each piece was unique, daring and daring and they all came together to create a cohesive lookbook and a magical fashion show.
