Not content with the plenitude of toned, lithe bodies regularly stretched across the golden sands of Ipanema beach, the second week of January sees Rio taken over by Fashion Rio, the city’s version of Fashion Week. Held at Pier Maua in the docks, this is Rio’s up and coming district that is in the process of a major makeover by the likes of billionaire impresario Eike Batista that will see it grow into the city’s version of Shoreditch or Williamsburg. For fashion lovers, this is the perfect time to visit, where even the Cariocas discard their havaianas to compete with the well-heeled Paulistas and international fashion crowd at a host of shows and glamorous after parties designed for champagne quaffing long into the night. Dehouche can arrange an access all areas trip that will see you sitting in the best seats and dancing at the right parties, as well as a personal shopping trip around the city’s top boutiques so you can take some of that Brazilian style home with you. If the thought of waiting another year, has you tapping your Manolos with frustration, fear not: The second week of June sees the summer collections launch in Sao Paulo, with inspirational swimwear shows that beat the other Fashion Capitals hands down.
