DINO ALVES: Once a cowboy…

This is a throwback from the print issue of ZOOT Magazine "All-new", Summer 2009 Issue 1 Volume 2

Dino Alves has been seen as walking the line between wildness and convention for 14 years now. The Portuguese designer – and the models who know him best – set the record straight.

The interview with Dino was conducted by Joana Cardoso, editorial design
by art director Asger Bruun Jakobsen. The photos were done in our studio at LX Factory in Lisbon.

and original way. He is a worker, a doer – full of positive energy.” FLOR

has no limits and he plays with clothes and images in a unique way.” SOFIA APARICIO

“I love doing Dino´s catwalks because he creates big shows with big stories behind them. I think on a bigger stage he would be an even bigger star and we should appreciate having him here.” SOFIA BAESSA
