(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Fashion Rio concluded another diverse and dynamic day on Wednesday (April 17) , with contrasting parades featuring loose, flowing beachwear and the sleek swimsuits. The fashion house of Cantao showed that it had spent the necessary time preparing for Rio de Janeiro's premiere fashion event of the year. Much of Cantao's new collection remembered an age well before the flower-power era that has so heavily influenced the label over the decades. Designer Lenny Niemeyer's look ahead at 2014 was as evocative as ever, bristling with electricity and sleek creative choices in swimwear. This new collection steered away from Niemeyer's emphasis on prints the previous year, pushing instead towards a reliance of line and form.
