Atelier António Soares

Fashion + Industry icon

Fashion + Industry


Out of sight and still in plain view, central location. Finding the door can prove challenging, even to treasure hunters, but worth the try. An old lift opens way to António Soares’ atelier, where the walls are covered in colour and lines. This is where he seeks refuge from the city bustle and where he creates the most refined fashion illustrating work, commissioned from all over the world.

Porto’s signature light brightens not only this work space but also the work  of the students António sees daily, inspiring them. The will to learn from someone who has mastered his art is the driving force of those who come here. ‘Passing on the torch’ is also what António Soares feels as most rewarding. Students and teacher, paper and watercolours are what really bring colour the place.
