After São Paulo, it’s time for my beloved Rio de Janeiro to host all of the national fashion antennas, and a few international ones as well.
Paulo Borges, the fashion weeks’ organizer in both Rio and SP has already announced that it will be the last year usign the format we are familiar with. Starting next year, Rio will host only one annual fashion week, focusing on summer. Some celebrated, others not so much - controversies aside, I leave here the must-see runway shows of the Cidade Maravilhosa.
