I had to really dig for coverage of Fashion Week in Rio Jan. 9th . Some of the designers are Claudia Simoes, Walter Rodrigues, Cantao, and Maria Bonita Extra. There was a few common trends; colors, legs, even colors on legs. Brazil has such a vibrant culture and that was truly interpreted through each collection. Even black was used, the make-up reflected the tribal roots of the country. I hope in the coming seasons we will see more coverage of the up and coming designers of Latin America.
