Celebrating International Women 's Day

Metáforas Fashion show took place on March 8th 2010, International Women Day , presided by the then Brazilian President Lula, Vice President Dilma Rouseff and the new minister for women's affairs who took office that day.

There were 6,000 people in the audience in a 19th century railway station built and designed by the British in wrought iron called ESTAÇAO LEOPOLDINA,

The fashion show was styled by Cristina Eastwood. The musicians and all the models who are residents of Cidade Alta , received a standing ovation from the crowd .

All the models were residents of CIDADE ALTA ( They were removed in rubbish trucks in the 1960' s from a Favela in the heart of Rio by the Lagoon and relocated to CIDADE ALTA )
This traumatic heritage is the source of the graffiti inspiration for some of the designs on the cotton pique dresses featured in the catwalk show collection .

The girls have enormous grace , natural style and grace as you can see in the photographs.
It was an unforgettable and inspirational experience to work with the models and the design team .

This event was the apotheosis of a long term project headed by their CEO Marilia Pastuk for AÇAO COMUNITARIA DO BRASIL - RIO DE JANEIRO
