From dance to Fashion, the distance is almost inexistent, both are Art in movement. And our dear interviewed for today's, João Pombeiro, gave his first steps as a dancer during seventeen years till he found his own stage, Fashion: makeup artist, booker, to now stylist and Editor in Chief of his own fantastic online Fashion publication, Bless. Which we can say that is the "bless" of his life like it was his own child. Owner of a flawless style, his Fashion productions - for EditMag or his own Bless - have the same reflex, bold with the touch of elegance in pure state. We presume that very soon one of his next productions will be for Numéro, with Sasha Pivovarova and Steven Meisel by his side. Now, and reversing the roles, get to know the Fashion Secrets of dear João, "with our blessing".
Da dança à Moda, a distância é quase nula, ambas são Arte em movimento. E o nosso querido entrevistado de hoje, João Pombeiro, deu os primeiros passos como dançarino durante dezassete anos até encontrar o seu verdadeiro palco, a Moda: de maquilhador, booker, a actual stylist e Editor in Chief da sua própria fantástica publicação online de Moda, a Bless. E se como um filho se tratasse podemos afirmar que é a "benção" da sua vida. Dono de um estilo irrepreensível, as suas produções de Moda - para a EditMag ou para a sua Bless - têm o mesmo reflexo, arrojadas com o toque da elegância em estado puro. Presumimos que em breve uma das suas próximas produções será para a Numéro, com Sasha Pivovarova e Steven Meisel ao seu lado. Agora, e invertendo os papéis, fiquem a conhecer os Fashion Secrets do querido João, "com a nossa benção".
First of all thank you so much for the compliment. Define my style in three words isn't easy. Maybe a mix between the casual, trashy and stylish.
And who or what inspires your style?
My humor, without a doubt.
You already had been a dancer, makeup artist - and i already had the pleasure to had my makeup done by you - booker, now stylist and editor in chief of Bless Magazine. An eclectic path but all of it connected to your true passion: Fashion. Do you consider that now is where you heart lies?
Definitely yes! After seventeen years dedicated to dance, this change for the Fashion scene, even if radical was planned in a certain way. I had my first contact with the national fashion in 2005, after i had finished my Fashion design course and made my internship with Dino Alves. All this path was built in a way to fulfill my fashion knowledge in several aspects, a personal strategy to reach the styling and to have my own publication. Those were some of my goals.
If you could choose any Fashion publication in the world, for which one would you like to make the styling production?
And with who would you love to work in the same production?
Photographer: Steven Meisel
Female model: Sasha Pivovarova
Male model: Clement Chabernaud
Makeup artist: Pat McGrath
We know that your addiction - literally - are magazines, that you have plenty of them. We presume that your fantastic project - Bless - is now your favorite online magazine?
Yes, without a doubt. I am more and more in love with Bless. It's complicated not to be my favorite magazine, being something that completely came out of my head, is like a child.
And which one is the "offline"?
In the middle of many, i can highlight Numéro, Vogue Paris, LOVE, L'Officiel Hommes, Vogue Homme International, Purple...
João, this question is inevitable, do you bless our KATEFP?
Without a doubt, J.
Thank you so much for this wonderful interview, it's a honor. And for your blessing and Bless *.*
Have a fantastic day and keep on smiling,
Tenham um dia fantástico e continuem a sorrir,
