In 1972 a young woman named Ana Salazar opened her own clothing shop in Lisbon in the Avenida da Igreja. The shop’s name ‘Maçã’ means ‘apple’ in Portuguese and is an allusion to the famous Beatles’ icon as well as symbolising temptation.
Portuguese editor of Marie Claire in the ‘90s, Helena Redondo, when speaking about Lisbon as it was then from a fashion perspective, remembers the city as “suspended,” a city “where people made resignation into a way of living” and in which only a minority were interested in an alternative look. Maçã seemed to introduce a new concept: it welcomed a generation waiting for things to change.
As fashion theorist Elizabeth Wilson points out, fashion can be seen “as a site of struggle, as an arena in which the conflicts of society are played out in semi-symbolic forms that may heighten rather than drug the consciousness of oppression. Fashion, too, as a collective as well as a highly individualistic enterprise, is a means of expression on a mass scale of solidarity and group identity (...)”.
