I can’t thank Luiza Barcelos enough for giving me the opportunity to get to know their company, and their beautiful country. This trip made me realise how truly blessed and lucky I am to not only be able to work with such a great team, but truly get to know the individuals behind the label which makes me so proud to be involved in and watch their wonderful success. It sounds corny but if I had to sum up the team and everyone I was fortunate enough to meet in Brasil- it would be ‘hospitable’. And after months of travelling with only a few pairs of shoes I was like a kid in a candy store thanks to Luiza! A surreal 8 days of little sleep shooting lookbook content, meeting readers at two in store events, meeting with local media and designers, shooting with Vogue Brasil and quick visit to Sao Paulo FW, but most importantly soaking in beautiful Brasil the entire time.
