Rio Fashion hits the catwalk

The event opened with a technicolor splash of radiant prints and colours from Patricia Viera"s new winter collection. Stunning and eclectic designs were highlighted by dynamic animal prints,outrageous colours,beads and florals. Artist Klaucia Badaro helped decorate some of the outfits. "Viera gave me total freedom to create. "just do it." It"s much easier to work that way for an artist. Really,things flow,better and I loved it. I don"t want to stop. I want to do this foreve". Designs by Brazilian architect Paulo Mendes da Rocha played inspiration for Alessa"s new collection. In a show dominated by black and white,the designer used tweed,chiffon,organza and satin as well as geometric jacquard patterns. Entitled Concreto,it was a determinedly urban collection for the young fashionista.
