Designer at Sao Paulo Fashion Week references oppression with creations

Models wearing weapons on helmets and contrasting colourful prints strutted down the runway as Brazilian designer Ronaldo Fraga presented his collection at Sao Paulo fashion week.

Fraga was influenced by the painting “War and Peace” by Brazilian artist Candido Portinari who died in 1962 – two years before the beginning of what would be the military dictatorship in Brazil. Prints from Portinari’s painting adorn some of Fraga’s fabrics.

Outfits on Fraga’s runway referenced war, with some models clad in helmets created by Marcos Costa decorated with ornaments the designer said represented the oppression of different sectors in Brazil in the past and present.

Fraga also said that the imagery of weapons used in his show was intended to represent the current government, after Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro loosened the nation’s gun laws.On a lighter note, Haight swimwear debuted a collection of costumes that they said expressed self-knowledge.
