Rio fashion week kicks off with Herchcovitch show

Jan '12
Rio de Janeiro's winter 2012 fashion week began with a utilitarian-inspired denim collection from Alexandre Herchcovitch, one of the biggest names in Brazilian fashion.

Herchcovitch, who has displayed his work on several international platforms, presented a sober collection that would have been more appropriate for catwalks in New York and Milan.

Herchcovitch was the only exception, as other collections during the day were filled with colours and depicted the use of bold designs, prints and shades.

Erika Frade and Alessa Migani were other designers to display their collections at the event.

The large kimono collection from Patachou had clear eastern influence and included kimono style wrap-dresses. Patachou's designer Erika Frade was the star of the show as she went on to display crisp poplin for a work shirt and a dress in red leather for glamour.

The elegant collections form Sao Paulo-based fashion label Acquastudio had silk flowers and pastel hues with a 1950s influence. The display of full skirts, nipped waists and rhinestone-covered socks generated lot of excitement.

Fashion designer Alessa Migani lined the catwalk with dresses that were inspired from Turkish kilim.

The woolen collection from brand Cantao received good response from the audience. The line included shorts knit from chunky yarn, maxi sweaters and leggings.
