Considering the pandemic that we are experiencing and the impossibility of carrying out the masterclass in Portugal, in our facilities and with the local textile industry, IPCA, Portugal transformed this masterclass into a space for presenting what is produced in their region in terms of fashion and textiles from the design perspective. Aiming to think and create for and with the elderly, empowering them from the collaborative design point of view. IPCA presented a set of designers, brands and factories that contextualized the production of Portugal at various levels of the development of the textile product and discussed future perspectives.
