The emblematic Mallorcan port makes, once again, a clear commitment to fashion and design, becoming the stage for this great event, which will bring together great designers, international models and, recognized experts, journalists and first level influencers in the world of fashion.

Graf has said that she is very proud that Puerto Portals is integrated into a such an important event for the fashion industry. She pointed out that “fashion is part of our navy. We do not only have nautical and commercial offer, but also good restaurants, also big stores. It is part of the essence of Puerto Portals to be open to everyone. And this is an event open to everyone with a desire to to do something in the world of fashion.”

The theme of inspiration for the second edition of the event was People & Places, which has allowed contestants to draw inspiration from anywhere on the planet and people that live in it.
