Watch: video highlights from Sao Paulo Fashion Week
Friday 04 February 2011
The stars! The models! The runways! Here are this season's highlights from Brazil's number one fashion destination.
The most star-studded show came courtesy of Colcci who got Gisele Bundchen, Alessandra Ambrosio, and actor Ashton Kutcher to present its creations.
Cavalera had the models stomp across a water-filled basin while they were drenched in artificial rain - no doubt that these clothes are fit for any weather outside Brazil.
A demure and pure collection - unusual for Brazil - was presented by Reinaldo Lourenço.
Triton's futuristic show was all about neon and metallics and featured a runway appearance by hotel heiress Paris Hilton.
Fashion label Neon, however, didn't have anything to do with fluorescent colors but presented red-black-and-white outfits as well as some glittering animal prints in a performance-like set-up.
Sao Paulo's equivalent of Vivienne Westwood is found: it's Amapô.
Cori showed clear cuts worthy of an important business meeting or formal evening dinner.
Alexandre Herchcovitch's show featured a much talked-about appearance of the first successful transsexual model, Lea T.
The Brazilian spotswear label Osklen's new collection was surprisingly avant-garde.
A visual highlight: Fause Haten had models take their seats at the end of the runway to enjoy a ballet performance with the audience.
Ronaldo Fraga presented a collection of impressive prints on a highly artistic runway.
