Parade: Manifesto Puts Trans Women on the Catwalk

It was a social manifesto the parade of designer miner Ronaldo Fraga, on Wednesday, at the Teatro São Pedro. On the catwalk, he placed only transsexual women, all of them with variations of a single dress. Changed only the prints, inspired by paper dolls. “The history of this collection is not in the clothes and, Yes, in whom the dresses,” said, just before you start the show in São Paulo Fashion Week.

The designer opened her presentation remembering that Brazil is the country where most killings occur transvestites and transsexuals around the world, according to a report by the international NGO Transgender Europe. “We are in a time of war. We don’t need more clothes. Fashion needs to start a dialogue on other fronts. ”

Valentina Sa, which is trans and stands out as the top station’s sweetheart, was the only professional model. The rest of the casting was selected by Instagram. “It was exciting, I even cried. I’ve never seen a demonstration in fashion shows. Ronaldo really goes beyond, “said fashion consultant Costanza Pascolato.

To raise the banner of transgender and summon shemale and women who have undergone sex-change surgery for your parade, Fraga not only did a fashion of protest as gave life and personality to the clothes. “It’s not the dress that values the body is the body that values the dress. Before he fell loose, now he gets asses and breasts that I didn’t draw it, “he says. “This is wonderful.”

At a time when even the clothes WINS political reading (a cashmere sweater becomes symbol of political preference in an election and use red becomes synonymous with partisan orientation), the catwalks reflect the engagement seen on social networks and in real life too. And fashion conquers space hitchhiking on the relevance of these discussions, see Emic with the black movement in the parade brand LAB and now Ronaldo Fraga with transativismo. “The question now is whether this movement is genuine and lasting and even where it is just a fad that station, which reverberates in social networks,” says Sergio Amaral, Director of L’officiel Hommes magazine writing.

In counterpoint to this, on the fourth day of parades, there was also space for the escapism of swimwear. Inspired in the Maldives, the coconut water presented a luxury beachwear, bikinis and swimsuits with sleeves with wide and hotpants. I brought a team of powerful tops, with names such as Carol Ribeiro, Ana Beatriz Barros, Fernanda Tavares, Isabeli Fontana, among others. Marlon Teixeira, the model number one in the world in men’s fashion, made two entries showing the only looks for men of the parade. Accommodated in the queue, press, bloggers and the singer Claudia Leitte, who was already with a new collection of coconut water. The presentation happened on Beach & Country Artifact, furniture and decoration.

Embroidery left parts, that have already been made in noble fabrics like silk, even more sophisticated. The long dresses and flowing pants also stood out.

Amir Slama brand already has invested in a fetishistic beachwear, rescuing the thong and the models dug, and recreating lingeries corsets type, with fins and moorings. In addition to betting on leggings, garter belts and transparencies trends. The hair came with a huge braid and a CAP, lipstick was black and heels completed the looks dominatrix-style.

Inspired by the unsettling art of French painter Gustav Courbet the collection of Vitorino Campos was totally without genre, with dresses for them and they, very straight and tulle, nothing too tight. Coats with bulky shoulder pads, parts with patchwork leather applications and bright and transparent dresses gave touch years 1980 to parts. Feet, plastic sandals flats created in partnership with Melissa, worn with socks.

In a day of parades in which the trans shone and attracted all the attention and that, once again, the bloggers-stars were harassed in the corridors of the event, it was evident that the supermagras is in the end, about to die on the beach. And that today’s lean bodies don’t make success out of the fashion world. On the contrary, they end up decreasing the grace of clothes. (Collaborated Isabela Seraphim)
