Get to Know Brazilian Designer Martha Medeiros (Then Go Buy Her Clothes, Which Just Made their US Debut)
While in Sao Paulo a few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting designer Martha Medeiros, who, in addition to being one of the sweetest, cutest persons I have ever met, also happens to be one of the most talented and unique designers in the country. In short, I kind of fell in love--both with Martha, and with her clothing. And now that Medeiros' designs will be available for the first time ever in the USA--they debuted at Bergdorf Goodman yesterday--here's why you need to get to know this designer. Stat. There's a lot of awesome fashion design going on in Brazil, and as the shows during Sao Paulo Fashion Week evidenced, the clothing has a pretty international appeal to it--as in, the collections would feel as at home in New York or London as they do in Sao Paulo. But if you're looking for a label that's authentically, and uniquely Brazilian--something that's Brasilidade, as they say--well, look no further than Martha Medeiros.
