|Brazil : Fashion Rio begins in Rio de Janeiro|
January 16, 2007
The Official Week for Brazilian Fashion in Rio de Janeiro – Fashion Rio –
is being held at Marina da Glória for the second time. It began this Sunday, the 14th, and will continue through Friday, the
19th, after 32 fashion shows, three of which are collections by new talents.
This edition’s theme is “cultural
miscegenation”, a way to value Brazilian arts and crafts, but most especially, to add value and identity to Brazilian
apparel against global competition.
“About 8 million artisans work for the textile industry today, but there
is still much to organize with this work and a fair price must still be obtained,” declared Elysa Simão from Dupla Assessoria,
creator and event organizer.
Health is in vogue this edition. Author of the book “The Intolerable Weight of Ugliness”,
psychologist Joana de Vilhena Novaes, will lecture about eating disorders such as anorexia, and FIRJAN will work on the theme
“Fashion Pulses”, focusing throughout the entire event on cardiovascular diseases that affect women, already representing
10 times more deaths in women than AIDS and Cancer.
