It all started with Ronaldo Fraga himself reading a message in audio about the lack of visibility and the difficulties that the transsexuals and transvestites are every day – Brazil, for example, is one of the countries in which they die. The stylist miner took the opportunity to explain the name with which he named the collection, El Dia Que Me Quieras: a song, a dress, Many Stories. This is a reference to Ney Galvão, who commanded a space of resistance in Itabuna, in the interior of Bahia the years 1970. “The” dress also have explanation: Ronaldo created an entire collection with a single model of the play, which won several interpretations, the runway for each of the models so that if they opened the curtains. Who opened the catwalk was Patrick Rigon, artist of Rio Grande do Sul.

“He wanted to do something revolutionary to show that we are human beings like anyone else – says Mirella Cândido Simplicius, one of the models. -We don’t need only be hairdressers or dancers. We can be who we want – completed, in an interview with Donna backstage.

With a soundtrack that included an instrumental version of She, Charles Aznavour, the parade has led to tears many of the guests – and, in the end, even the stylist, who thanked with kisses in the hands of each of the models. In closing, closed the curtains and, when the lights went up again, they appeared only in lingerie, dancing with each other in a big dance in which they were the stars of the night. Delicate, the pieces are signed by the label gaúcha Oh! Studio. In the background, the scene signed by the Gaucho artist Prageeth.

–What matters least is the clothes. We don’t need more clothes and parade, we need other things. The sets need to do this exercise to establish dialogues with other fronts–said the stylist, chat with the press at the end of the show. -Brazilian fashion denies and is unaware of this figure (trans), my collection speaks of love, talk, talk sets as an instrument of liberation, and release of a very serious story. Is fashion by releasing the body, the body as a prison. Can you imagine what is a soul that does not fit in that body, because born unaware that body. She does not recognize that body. And what will release is the first skirt, the first lipstick, the first sandal. That justifies all this universe, this magic. That’s what sets exist – explains.

Once again, Ronaldo Fraga transcended the catwalk with a parade full of poetry and sensibility, as only he can do. Proof, once again, that fashion can–and should–go far beyond clothes.
