The first part of my Brazilian tour of fashion conferences is now finished. The Brazilian organization Senac Ceara kindly invited me to open Dragaõ Fashion Week in Fortaleza, in the north of Brazil. It was great to speak in front of so many fashion enthusiasts who knew a lot about Antwerp fashion!
Attending the local fashion week it was interesting to see how every fashion hub around the world puts their own identity into their shows. The local crafts and techniques are integrated into the catwalk silhouettes blending old and new materials. Apart from the fashion activities we visit the beach everyday, coconut water and caïpirinhas, caïpiguavas and caïpiwiki form a fixed feature on the menu!
