Marques’ Almeida Fall 2024 Ready-to-Wear: A Sweet Homecoming

It’s been a long time coming for Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida, who last showed on the London Fashion Week schedule four years ago. But after spending a few days at the venue of their show, the Truman Brewery in east London, it all started to feel like home again.

“It was a weird feeling coming back because everything was so familiar, but then it’s been so long and we’ve managed to get a lot of our team back here, from the stylists to the hair team and models,” Marques said backstage, standing with Almeida as they were being embraced by the fashion flock.

The couple reflected on the obsession with youth and age in the fashion industry and in turn, put out a tasteful collection that would be just as appealing to a grandmother, mother or daughter.

There were short, loose dresses with exaggerated bottom halves that nod to Marie Antoinette’s hips or the notion of taking up space; corseted bodices with a peplum; gradient denim tie-dyes in frayed miniskirts or belted shirts; motorcycle jackets in fuzzy knit layered with a lighter fine-knit cardigan; and suit skirts or dresses stamped with floral embodies against a black backdrop.

“We went places that were perhaps a bit taboo for us such as elegance or playing with big satin shapes and embroidery,” Marques allowed.
