Last night we experienced a very special show to kick off Brazil Fashion Week at MINAS TREND.  With a dramatic catwalk set against an industrial space, models floated down the runway with sky-high bars casting slivers of shadows over them.  It was a beautiful display mixing looks and items from a wide variety of brands who will be showing their collections over the next few days.  Large scale prints in tropical brights were adeptly mixed with exquisite embroideries on some of this season's key silhouettes such as crop tops and full skirts.  With some light Brazilian dance music in the background, the whole show just washed over you just like the warmth I have been experiencing here with the people of Belo Horizonte.

Can't wait to see what this week has in store.
