AcomB: from Cinderella to Princess
16
Jan '08
AcomB's (Brazilian Community Action) debut at Fashion Rio took over and excited the public.

The brand's first collection, which was signed by Beto Neves, portrayed the history of the community of Cidade Alta in Rio.

The trajectory of the residents, who were removed from the Pino Shantytown to the Housing Complex, was told in a playful manner: the residents' everyday lives were shown as that of Cinderella.

In the end, the moment she becomes a Princess, takes place at the Great Ball, that is, the Fashion Rio catwalk.

For all this to happen, the fairy godmothers (Petrobras and the FIRJAN System) played fundamental roles.

The first part of the story has short skirts and shorts under fitted dresses and T-shirts with waists.

After the fairy godmother enters, the look becomes festive and coats, shawls, long dresses appear, finishing with the Princess' look.

Knits and cotton dominate AcomB's winter collection, which used yellow, white, black and pink, among others. The embroideries stand out and give the pieces a special touch.
