May 31, 2017

Brazilian designer Isaac Silva has long been influenced by feminist, Black and LGBTQ activism, and his latest work is no exception. During the fashion event Casa de Criadores in São Paulo on May 11, Silva debuted his winter 2017 collection in partnership with Magá Moura, and the two worked closely to exemplify the importance of representation in the medium. The show featured models of various gender identities and body types, including trans models, displaying more fully than ever the vast culture that makes Brazil so beautifully vibrant.

Among the models was the first Black woman to win the Ford Models Brasil contest. Accessories were designed by Hotpente, the blue jeans were made in partnership with Vicunha Têxtil. This collection epitomizes Isaac’s message, which the designer explains is to “live your clothes and your look with the same desire you have to show the world who you are […] Without fear or labels. [The] orld is for everyone.” The pieces will be sold post parade in the Freak Market. Check out our favorite looks below!
