I was astound when I saw Gisele Bundchen walking down the biggest catwalk wearing Brazilian Designer, Alexandre Herchcovitch mesh gown with golden sequins at the Opening Ceremony of The Olympics at the Maracana, in Rio de Janeiro.
Her confidence was transparent, I could see through her eyes , her joy and honor to be part of the Olympics at the country where she was born and raised. Daniel Jobim the grandson of the legendary Brazilian Composer and Song Writer Tom Jobim playing and singing his grandfather original song "Garota de Ipanema" made me chills. It was one of the best parts of the Open Ceremony in my opinion.
Having someone that is representing Brazil in the best possible way like Gisele Bundchen has always been for so many years and Tom Jobim song being played was the best "Icing on the cake" that we could have ever experienced at the Open Ceremony.
The lighting reflecting the curves on the floor as she walks the catwalk towards Daniel Jobim was inspired by Oscar Niemeyer Designs, a famous Brazilian Architect, who is considered to be one of the key figures of modern architecture.
Alexandre Herchcovitch had worked with Gisele before, when he was the Creative Director of the extinct Brazilian brand Zoomp. He is now designing for A La Garconne, his husband company, which will launch this week in New York being sold through the retailer Opening Ceremony .
I just can't wait to see more of his designs, his attention to detail is what everyone seeks when investing in a garment, yes I used the word invest, as a born and raised brazilian I learned that our shoes, accessories, clothes, are an investment so there is nothing better than to invest in a good item.
When music, fashion, architecture is combined, art is communicated beautifully and I am looking foward to share more of it with you.
