About Me

I'm natural of Rio de Janeiro and moved to São Paulo to work with visual merchandising in an american retail store. I love the city and it's amazing to discover their secrets everyday. São Paulo can be a little lonely sometimes, especially when you are not from here and your family and old friends are not close. But the city always finds a way to make you smile. =)
I live in the central region of the city, a very special area. It's close from everything and it's easy to visit the famous places walking. I live very close to a subway station, where you can go to each part of this amazing city.

I also work as designer in a fashion brand with 2 friends from Rio. We want to discuss the genre today, so we develop clothes thinking about the fitting in all the kind of bodies. We believe there's no clothes "for man" or "for woman". For example, if you're a man and a "feminine" clothing fits good on you, why this piece would be considered feminine?
