Brazil's top stylists continued to present on Tuesday (March 19) their latest summer creations on the runways of Latin America's most important fashion event, Sao Paulo Fashion Week. Ronaldo Fraga, one of the most talented and original designers in Brazil's fashion scene, took another artistic collection to the catwalk. The runway was transformed into a dirt soccer court with bamboo goals reminiscent of Brazil's 1940s and 50s. Models wearing steel wool wigs trotted down the catwalk in outfits inspired in the country's soccer roots. Brazil is Latin America's biggest economy and has one of the world's fastest-growing fashion industries.
