Dans cette douce souffrance.
Dont j’ai payé toutes les offenses

Je remue le ciel le jour, la nuit
Je danse avec le vent la pluie
Un peu d’amour un brin de miel
Et je danse, danse, danse, danse, danse,danse
Et dans le bruit, je cours et j’ai peur
Est ce mon tour?
Vient la douleur…
Dans tout paris, je m’abandonne
Et je m’en vole, vole, vole, vole, vole
You’re lying safe in bed
It was all a bad dream
Spinning in your head
Your mind tricked you to feel the pain
Of someone close to you leaving the game
So here it is, another chance
Wide awake, you face the day
Your dream is over…
Or has it just begun?

This is a very special collection for me.
Luana Barzane created her Autumn/Winter Collection to showcase during our Fashion Week inspired by my country – Portugal.
The way she did it is absolutely brilliant: through the use of cobalt blue and white, the creator of Amarelo Manga captured one of the most traditional Portuguese Arts: tile work.
The outfits were named after famous women in the History of Portugal and Brazil and the connection our two countries have had through centuries.
The pumps were named after one of the main cities on the northern central part of my country – Viseu.
I’m completely honored to present Amarelo Manga for AVENUE Autumn/Winter Fashion Week 2013.
October 3rd @ 12 Pm SLT
[Image taken at Portugal Lisboa sim: how many times did I go to work in this yellow tram, in my RL!]
[Image taken at Portugal Centre sim – One of the public transports to travel across the country is this train you see in the photo and yes, I’ve travelled in it so many times in RL as well.]
What’s left for me to show you or tell you, inspired myself by Luana?
There is a word they say it doesn’t exist in any other language other than Portuguese – and it seems to be true as far as I know:
~~ saudade ~~
There is no translation for it, as a single word. In English we can say “I miss you”, but there is no noun for it.
Saudade is a feeling.
Portuguese traditional music is called Fado – tourists from all over the world come to Portugal and listen to Fado in taverns, eating and drinking, while a woman sings, wearing a shawl (very typical too). Historically, Fado are love songs, sad songs, sung by women who saw their loved ones leave in a boat or a ship, not knowing if they would ever come back home safe.
No one better than Portuguese Fado singer Amália Rodrigues to show you what the word saudade means. Just by listening to her…. we get it.
Amália passed away in October 6th 1999.
Recently, a Portuguese group of artists performed this same song in a homage to her: Gaivota (Seagull)
Indeed, a very special collection for me, personally.
Obrigada, minha querida Luana!

Make this alive
Good days are back
Open your eyes when it falls
Come back to the air
I can’t tell you what you already know
I can’t make you feel what you already feel
I can’t show you what’s in front of you
I can’t heal those scars
I am a member of the butterfly culture
Where we work and we take
We play and we pray to god
That the girl in that dress will undress
And distress you with the way that she moves
