Rio de Janeiro has always been a very inspiring and facinating city for me. Not just by the beautifull landscape but above all by the complexity and the diversity of its population.
I met a French fashion journalist Nadine Gonzalez, who discovered the creative talent of women in Rio’s slums with Brazilian designer Andrea Fasanello.
She created ModaFusion in 2006. Starting as an social project promoting ethical fashion from Brazil, ModaFusion now designs and develops her own high fashion collections. Brazilian savoir-faire and popular langage combined with modern fashion design makes for unique fashion pieces. ModaFusion juste launched the "Generation City of God", a projet full of young local artists.
