Day two at the Bossa Nova Show was marked by talks on the use of jewelry and costume jewelry. Regina Machado, a designer and trend researcher, discussed the importance of valuable accessories within human culture.
Regina provided an outlook on upcoming trends in the sector: a lot of hand-crafted work in flowers, embroidery, lace and beads, as well as items that combine new technologies and industrial materials.
A roundtable between Fabiana Mello, Fashion and Apparel Coordinator at the Service of Support for Micro and Small Enterprises (SEBRAE); Jeanne Faria, a designer for the Byzance Jóias label; and Eloysa Simão, the founder of the Bossa Nova Show, also discussed the use of jewelry and costume jewelry.
One of the topics covered was the power that accessories have in differentiating style. Even a basic look can become sophisticated with the right accessory. Sustainability was also a topic of the debate. They believe that the industry should support the use of materials that are environmentally friendly and non-hazardous to the ecosystem.
From May 14 to 17, Espaço 3650, in Rio de Janeiro, is hosting the first edition of the Bossa Nova Fashion Show. This event is the result of two major Rio de Janeiro business fairs joining forces: Fashion Business and Rio-à-Porter.
The goal of the merger is to strengthen the industry and drive sales for the collections shown at the latest fashion weeks. Two-hundred and fifty exhibitors from northern to southern Brazil are attending the event.
The first day of the project mixed a lot of art, music and fashion. The Desigual label had a guest artist making customized shirts. Eva, Reserva’s women’s line, brought in DJ Gabriela Santana to give the event a rock and roll feel. She played various indie tracks from the ’80s.
Swimwear labels held a very laid-back, impromptu runway show in the Espaço 3650 corridor. Some of the participants included Água de Coco, Blue Man and Salinas.
