This is the result of the creation by Lino Villaventura, Reinaldo and Pedro Lourenço, Glória Coelho, and other Brazilian stylists and brands, for this edition of the São Paulo Fashion Week, which started on Wednesday, July 12, at the Ibirapuera in São Paulo.

The Brazilian Export and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex) and the Brazilian Association of Shoe Manufacturers (Abicalçados) also support the project, which is presented abroad, after the fashion shows in Brazil.
