Brazil: Favela Fashion Show

“A school for fashion in one of Brazil's most notorious favelas is proving to be quite a hit, not just with the students who dream of a better life, but also with the local residents who were the special guest at there violent neighbourhood's first fashion show”. See a video at W.V. Fitzgerald blog.

  • Thank you for posting this link.
    It is always a good day when we see our young people making a positive change in their lives and the lives of others.

    It seems that in every country the attention often goes to those causing the problem rather than those working for a solution, these young lady’s are part of the solution.

    Thank you again
