Belo horizonte, home to 4 million people and brazil’s third largest city, known for its curved buildings by the architect oscar niemeyer, hosted one of the country’s most important fashion events with a focus on new, emerging creations seen across the work of four young and noteworthy designers…
firstly, we have esdra by sarah scheffel who has been passionate about shoes since her childhood and has already gained international experience in italy at sergio rossi. she is inspired by the parisian woman with interplays of black and white stripes and hints of multicoloured embroidery. femininity is enhanced by the use of lace and visible lingerie. leather is adorned with metallic eyelets resulting in a more urban silhouette.
jardin, by bharbara renault, is inspired by chinatown. small plaited cloche hats crown the heads of the models and the designer works quilted leather to produce a tight-fitting dress, a jumper and coordinated outfits.
llas is a label created in 2010 by sisters lorena and laura andrade. these two young designers play with the effects produced by layering and transparency with embroidered tulle, creating a small yet utterly delicate and wonderfully constructed collection.
lucas magalhaes, reworks an indigenous aesthetic for a graphic and colourful wardrobe.
across this event, one can only salute the initiative of the textile industry in this region of brazil, which showcases a generation of promising designers, giving them the means to benefit from a project worthy of the most prestigious fashion weeks.
