For this Fall issue THE DRAFT MAG went on a journey into Wonderland. As Fall stands for new beginnings, we decided to start where all dreams are made of: in the raw side of things, while staying true to pure creativity. The journey begun in Berlin with photographer Valeria Mittelman and her magical story where tales are told and secrets revealed. From the German capital also came a pop take on Alice in Wonderland by photographer Klaas Wollstein: in Gum Drop Doll, more is more. Daniel Picado, and the series Sous Vicious took us from Berlin to Paris. While Neil Craver took us to U.S.A, in an immeasurable beautiful subaquatic trip on Omni-Phantasmic. Since São Paulo is close to the United Stated a visit seemed like a good idea. There the yellow shades of Frida Westwood by stylist and art director Cláudia Rodrigues, proved that Brazil’s fashion is about way more than just swimwear. As on one hand traveling around the world is always a good idea, on the other the cliché “there’s no place like home” is always truth. So we got back to Lisbon to celebrate fall with the young and fresh Collec7ive and photographer Carlos Rodrigues in Leaves Fall, Trends Call. There is so much more to tell but as in any world full of wonders it’s better to see (and read) with your own eyes. A last minute hint: we flew to the universe and myths were revealed! Pedro Matos

LONG LIVE THE CULTURE What defines a murderer? And a victim? Portugal is right now a country immersed in a deep economic crisis, and government politics seem to have deliberately left culture to die in a dry and hot desert. But culture refuses to die, right now it may be struggling, but it is for sure fighting back, having at the forefront its key players: the artists, that group of nonconformist and revolutionaries. Now some of them have taken a moment off the battlefront to talk with us about their projects, careers, and discuss this on-going attempted murder. by LĂgia GonĂ§alves
Frederico Corado Stage Director // Film Director
Photography by: Alfredo Matos
Rodrigo Saraiva Actor // Screenwriter
He says that the public views him as a “mainstream boy”, but the actor, a son of the 80’s, it’s neither. So don’t let the soap operas on his résumé fool you because mainstream may quite as well be the last word in mind when it comes to describe him. Some time ago he created with his friend and fellow actor Afonso Pimentel, Núcleo Casulo, an independent and multi-disciplinary platform producing mainly cinematographic contents. “For me it’s like a church, a catharsis and an exorcism that I evoke by the weekends” defines Rodrigo. As anything cathartic there are no plans, time or dates. As in any church there are no obligations, only the urge to attend. Today the Núcleo belongs not only to them “but to all of those who want to bring their creative contribution.” And from the director of photography, André Szankowski, to the designer Anabela Baldaque, many are the ones who wanted. On their portfolio you’ll find short films, showreels, a trailer for a play and a video clip. Whatever the format, they will always give you some raw an un-censored emotions, masterfully depicted. When it comes to Portugal’s current culture struggle, Rodrigo’s words sound almost like an appeal, but they are in fact a call for action: “Don’t support it by remaining in silence. What it’s needed is to tear apart the established standards. And we all must realize that’s something any of us can do, and for that we only need as much as a pen and paper.”
He has culture on his DNA as his father was the renowned Portuguese movie director, Lauro António. But Federico doesn’t lead’s his career reeling in the power of DNA, as a matter of fact he hasn’t stopped since he began: Short-Films, documentaries, publicity spots, plays, you name it, he has done it all. Frederico says that for him “it’s impossible to choose between theater and cinema” despite now he is completed devoted to theater as we speak he’s rehearsing four plays at the moment. “What brought me to theatre, were the actors as in a very young age I fell in love with them, but my first approaches were in fact doing videos for it.” An approach that soon became a round-theclock presence. From then on he staged several plays, and as a clear refusal to giving up co-founded the cultural association Entrar em Palco (meaning in English something like Taking the Stage). It not only produces theater, video and cinema contents as it’s responsible for several culture nature initiatives as cinema and art festivals; theater awards and most recently a communitarian theater project in Cartaxo. That last one has has took to the stage two plays already – The Prisoner of Second Avenue by Neil Simon and an Ideal Husband, by Oscar Wilde. The third one, The Crime of Aldeia Velha by Bernardo Santareno, is on its way and has its premiere scheduled for November. “If it’s to march to the sound of a pre-set drum, it isn’t worth it. We need to set our own beat.”

Mara Alves Painter
Art entered earlier in her life. It probably didn’t ask for consent, as no calling asks. With 10 years old Mara Alves already knew that art was her way. So when older the time to choose came, Ar.Co, the favorite school amongst Portuguese artists was her choice, there she studied Painting and Drawing. Now she’s not only a painter, has she teaches her craft. “I was still on Ar.Co when I received an invitation to give private atelier classes of paiting and drawing,” Mara says. From then on she did not stop: entered several competitions with success, exhibited individually and in group and went through several ateliers, until founding in 2010 her own: A Arte Tem Lugar (in English meaning Art Has A Place). Being at the same time an atelier, a gallery, a school, and mostly a space to share creativity, there art finds its right place. As a teacher she’s passionate about it. As a painter, her work is all about experimentalism, color and figurative, while inspiration can come from “everywhere and everything”. For her on these rough times we are going through “it lacks not only to raise awareness for art, but mainly it lacks solidarity and collaboration between the artists. I wish that we could once more reunite and share in social gatherings. After all a true artist isn’t afraid of the share, but most of all is not afraid of being one.”
Rodolfo Matos, Pedro Afonso, Leonel Soares and Manuel Simões are the four boys that make up Norton. Four boys with a love for music that want to make us dance and forget, even if only momentarily, day-to-day life. They started as five and with the guitarist Manuel Simões out of the early line-up. Ten years later they have on their record three studio albums –the last one Layers of Love United released last year – two remixed ones, lots of concerts, one E.P., and an European tour. Currently they still maintain their day jobs but it’s music “that makes the blood pump,” they say, adding later that they’ve “grown with the less good moments”. Giving up was never a hypothesis on the table; right now they are working on a new album and preparing a celebration show for their ten year anniversary. To the journey started a decade ago they called it “intense”, and throughout they’ve always been able to see a brighter side in adversity, so today’s cultural momentum isn’t an exception: “The times are hard, but we are living in one of the best periods of Portuguese music. Ironic how in times like this creativity always seems to arouse. “

THE TRUTH BEHIND THE MYTH Some myths only exist in our dreams, some have a price tag. Those surpassed brand status, to gain magic and a somewhat bewitching effect: Handbags, shoes and clothing items that can be found on bodies, shelves and wardrobes throughout the world. Rare species that belong both to imagination as real life. Now we’ve chosen some of them and embodied our inner myth buster. By Lígia Gonçalves
Ray-Ban Aviator If it was thanksgiving, we would thank to the United States Air
Force, for the Ray-Ban Aviator. Well it isnâ€™t but we thank them anyway: After all their complaints of headaches, caused by the sun, in the early 30â€™s were what led in 1937 to the birth of Ray-Ban and the Aviator sunglasses. The first ones had green lenses and aviator-plastic frame. On the next year plastic was replaced for metal, and a myth had emerged.
Converse Chuck Taylor All Star
It all started in Massachusetts 104 years ago, in 1908, when Marquis Mills Converse founded the Converse Rubber Shoe Company. Then in 1918, Charles “Chuck” Taylor a still unknown basketball player fell in love with them. Chuck would later play for several pro teams and join Converse, becoming the first player to promote a brand in America. Until that in the 30’s the brand incorporated his name onto the sneakers. From Basketball to the streets: In the 50’s it became a symbol for Rock & Roll and in the 70’s for Punk. No matter the musical genre, this all American icon, stands until today as a symbol of youth, rebellion and irreverence.
Balenciaga Lariat Bag
Most known as Motorcycle Bag, the Lariat handbag is the youngest myth on the bunch, with only 12 years old. By the end of the 90’s Nicolas Ghesquière, Balenciaga’s creative director created the prototype at the request of the company’s brass, who quickly dismissed for all the things we love on it: not having enough structure, being too soft and too light. But Ghesquière wouldn’t gave up and convince them to let the models carry it in the Autumn/Winter 2000 show. They all love it, particularly Kate Moss, and thereby the handbag world changed.
A cloth, a man, and a brand are the holy trinity, of the trench coat. The cloth is gabardine, that wonder which avoids rain; the man is Thomas Burberry, the one that in 1879 patented it; and the brand it’s the only one who has it on its genesis, Burberry. Since its invention it was worn during Wold War I; became a favorite amongst the mafia, the Royalty and the Hollywood stars. It has survived through gunshots, stigmas, and time: There’s no doubt that as long as there are people in the world, there will be trench coats on the streets.
Immoral, regal, elegant, restricted and sexy: throughout its history red lipstick has had many meanings. But it all started in Ancient Mesopotamian where woman would crushed precious jewels. Cleopatra preferred carmine beetles and ants for a deeper and regal shade, whilst Queen Elizabeth I used beeswax and plant derived red dyes. In the 1930’s cosmetic queens Elizabeth Arden and Estée Lauder both introduced shade-variations to the red. Truly fit for a queen, no wonder that today red stands for powerful, sexy and in-control women.

ON A RUSH Makeup artist Sara Menitra is like a high speed TGV train. She went from working as a graphic designer to winning the second place at IMATS NY 2012. THE DRAFT MAG met her during a short stay in Lisbon. by Cátia Santos Reis I met up with Sara Menitra on a hot late summer afternoon. It was rush at Príncipe Real, the coolest arrondissement in Lisbon if you ask, and there was this vibrant movement on the streets. We ended up sitting at an esplanade and though the view over the city was mesmerizing, I was truly intrigued by Sara’s presence. She was in town for less than three hours for a makeup workshop, with her sister Dee Jay Carla Menitra by her side, and wearing an ethnic printed cropped top, bright orange carrot pants and matching turban. “I’m not that into fashion”, she later told me to my surprise. Sara’s career as a makeup artist began in 2009, after taking makeup classes at Creative Academy in Lisbon. She worked as a graphic designer for almost ten years and even spent a year as a flight attendant before she finally realized makeup was her dream. Once she found out, there was no room for hesitation. “A friend of mine says I’m like a TGV (high-speed train)”, says the 35 years-old makeup artist. For someone who’s been in the game for only three years, her curriculum is quite impressive. She has published work in several fashion magazines such as Umbigo, Parq, Edit, Envy or Magnética; her work was also featured in advertisements and movies, including the 2012 Venice Film Festival competitor The Lines of Wellington, as well as on television as makeup artist advisor on “Querido, Mudei o Visual” (SIC Mulher, 2010), a makeover show on Portuguese cable TV. Though the director for the show was convinced otherwise, it was Sara’s debut in front of a camera. «I was so nervous in our first day filming. I wasn’t doing makeup for that long and had never been in front of a camera. And right on the first take, the director stopped me: “You have done this before, right?”».
Photography by: Simon Frederick www.simonfrederick.com
There’s this feeling of easiness in everything Sara does. “It’s so easy to me to make things happen and fight for them because this is what I really love to do”. And makeup has been around her for a long time. As a kid, she used to try makeup on her dolls. “I remember this episode, when I destroyed my mom’s lipstick. And to this day, I still remember its smell”. Her sister interrupts her. “I used to serve as her guinea pig in our teenage days”, she tells while they share a good laugh going through their memories. But it’s not just the makeup per se. For the makeup artist who confesses to never leave the house without her Kryolan concealer, there’s more into makeup: the power of transformation and ultimately the characterization. “I have always had this fascination with the human body”, she says. In fact, Sara took classes of Physiology and Anatomy at med school and studied Prosthetic Makeup at Los Angeles Cinema Makeup School. As she professes her admiration for the imaginary of David Lynch and Cronenberg’s movies, she confesses being inspired by art and architecture in her work of metamorphose, the one that led her into her biggest accomplishment to this day. In April, Sara placed second at IMATS NY 2012, the makeup world’s biggest gathering. On a two hour live competition and having “Wild Kingdom” as the theme, she created this fantasy of a medusa, in shades of blue, purple and pink, the same colors of the dress the model was wearing, which was actually made by Sara’s mom, who’s a seamstress. The project took Sara literally weeks of preparation. “I did a lot of research and sketching, and trained three to four times with a model, without had ever been able to finish on time”. When the day of the competition arrived, she not only finished on time, but also managed to have some time left. The end result had everyone at the event buzzing, including Sara’s ultimate reference in the makeup world Kabuki Magic. «My boyfriend, who is a photographer, took some pictures of my work and then we saw Kabuki Magic. I was only thinking about asking him to sign me an autograph when my boyfriend decided to show him the pictures he previously took. And he started to ask: “Who did this? You’re an amazing artist!”» When Sara recalls this episode, her face lightens up. She has this easy smile every time she starts talking about makeup and characterization. “It was the biggest reward I could have had!” The thing that impresses the most about Sara is her drive. She’s tenacious and is not afraid to admit she still has a lot to learn. But she also does not fear what the future holds up for her and she knows her worth. Since a lot of Hollywood top productions have now been relocated to England, Sara moved to London last month. When asked if there’s any chance to see her working backstage at a fashion show, the only thing that is lacking in her extensive curriculum, Sara does not hesitate: “Why not?” You’ll never know where this TGV is going to stop next time.

THE DRAFT BEAUTY
SEVEN BEAUTY SINS Not six, nor eight but seven. The redefinition of the seven deadly sins in the form of seven beauty picks for Fall 2012. by Cátia Santos Reis
GIVENCHY NOIR COUTURE MASCARA The mascara
GIORGIO ARMANI NEO-CLASSIC FACE&EYES PALETTE The palette Think of Giorgio Armani NeoClassic Face & Eyes palette as the beauty version of a Swiss army knife. Featuring a face powder that can also be used as a blush and a trio of eyeshadows in matte and satin finishes, this palette makes the transition from day to night much easier and packing a lot lighter.
A four in one mascara? Amen to that! Givenchy Noir Couture has everything to follow the steps of predecessor Phenomen’Eyes, including a trademark triple sphere wand. Formulated with exclusive Lash Booster Expert Complex, the new hit mascara delivers intense volume, strong curl, infinite length and complete lash care. Available in Black Satin and Brown Satin.
YVES SAINT LAURENT LE TEINT TOUCHE ÉCLAT The foundation Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Éclat is the equivalent to the Midas touch in beauty. The quintessential magic pen gets a foundation version and the end result does its name justice. Fresh, fluid and silky, Le Teint Touche Éclat gives skin a natural glowing effect due to a soft focus gel technology incorporated in the formula. No wonder it’s the most anticipated beauty release of 2012.
BIOTHERM BLUE THERAPY SERUM The serum Blue Therapy serum is the latest revolutionary anti-aging product from Biotherm laboratories. From the deepest seas, three different aquatic ingredients, from three different waters, with three properties for radiant skin. Highly concentrated, the transparent gel nurtures the skin, while providing instant refreshing and hydrating feel. Blue Therapy line also includes a cream. MAC COSMETICS X AZEALIA BANKS YUNG RAPUNXEL The lipstick
ESTÉE LAUDER PURE COLOR BEYOND BLACK IN BLUE BLOOD The nail polish The inspiration for Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Beyond Black nail lacquer collection came from Paris at night as creative director Tom Pecheux wanted to evoke the sultry, yet sophisticated, feeling from the City of Lights. Five metallic shades with True Vision technology for a dramatic effect made it hard to pick one but that “Blue Blood” hue is both dramatic and exquisite.
Those who never heard about Azealia Banks before better remember her name next time. The rapper turned famous over the infamous “212” video has already performed for Uncle Karl (Lagerfeld) himself and was Alexander Wang’s guest at the 2012 MET Ball. But she’s not over yet. Banks scored a contract with MAC Cosmetics to create “Yung Rapunxel”, a deep plum semi-matte finish lipstick perfect for fall. Too bad it’s limited edition. BOBBI BROWN BB CREAM SPF 35 The hybrid BB Cream – BB stands for Blemish Balm – became a phenomenon for the past year and Bobbi Brown is the latest to release its take on the Asian’s favorite. Featuring a cool SPF 35to protect skin from UVA/UVB rays, this BB cream does it all: conceals skin imperfections, hydrates and control oil, brightens dull skin and helps to reduce the inglorious wrinkles.

THE DRAFT EXPRESS
MANUELA OLIVEIRA According to many definitions being an It Girl means being the girl everyone wants to be. According to ours it could also mean being Manuela Oliveira. Either in jeans and flats, or designer dress and heels, the Head of Lisbon Fashion Week Press Office has it all: Flawless style and inimitable allure in a rather effortlessly way. In her work she’s the one connecting designers and press; she’s the one who is bringing fashion closer to all of us. As an it girl, that restricted breed, she has that kind of mystique that comes with being a natural muse. by Lígia Gonçalves
Current state of mind? Happy and expectant. (She’s pregnant with her first child.) From the moment you step foot into the office, how’s your morning routine? I turn on the computer, drink a coffee – Well now I don’t drink it – then check my emails and the clipping (the news on the media about Lisbon Fashion Week). Favorite artist? The sculptor, Louise Bourgeois. Playing on your iPod? The Rapture; Mumford & Sons; Florence & The Machine; Metronomy and The XX.
A motto? None, really. What I have is mainly an attitude of enjoying life and always seeing the bright side of things. Always in your handbag is? Cellphone, sunglasses, lip balm, lipstick and a moisturizer. The last thing you bought? Baby clothes! Do you have any favorite piece in your wardrobe? Well… I guess not. Most of all because it varies according to season and mood.
A book and an author? The book, The Bad Girl from Mario Vargas Llosa. The author, Haruki Murakami.
What would you never be caught wearing? I really can’t answer that as fashion is cyclic. So whatever I answer I know it will eventually make a comeback.
The words you like most and least? Yes and no, respectively.
A style advice? Oh undoubtedly, less is more.
Your biggest vice? Tv series. As while I have episodes to see it will keep me awake, until late night hours.
Fashion is synonym of? Self-expression.
