A totally independent editorial photographed by Brazilian upcoming plus size photographer Adriana Líbini styled by me, with my own clothes. Architecture and curves in the best São Paulo vibe.
It has been a while I have been observing Adriana Líbini’s projects. I have always thought of working together with her but I guess we have never been physically in the same place and time.
But during my last trip to Brazil I thought it would be the best opportunity to work with her. Also I have observed that Adriana’s project have grown and developed in a more refined way. Then it was the right time for us to partner.
Briefing was simple: to explore lines and shapes from modern architecture in São Paulo, I would style and do the beauty and she would make her magic with the cameras. The idea was to work together and have some portfolio for both of us.
Adriana is a very committed photographer who does understands the angles of the plus size body. She owns great equipment and is very easy to work with.
I do suggest her commissioned work for commercial and private jobs in Brazil ou abroad.
Now, the images.

Zizzi is soon lauching its summer collection How exciting? It is the season we all wait for. More colors, prints, and all that happy vibe around the clothes. Yes, we love summer. And to celebrate the launch, Zizzi invited me to pick my likes of the collection and to make this editorial in Rio. Yaaaaas! Should I have said yes or of course? ahahaha
The clothes are really beautiful. Variety of materials and prints, ranging from delicate flowers to polka dots. In this first selection I present you you, you can see two of the dresses I think are the most beautiful in the collection for my style and the gorgeous top with two layers, paired with a cute buttom-up like denim skirt.
The three looks fit several styles and ocasions, making your wardroe fresher and cooler for the long summer days we have been longing for so much.
The pieces will be available in stores and online from march. Get prepared to go crazy. Soon, the second part of this editorial I shot in Rio.
Here you find a list of Zizzi shops and this is their danish webshop and you can also shop Zizzi online at Navabi, they ship to several locations.
As you may have noticed, I was born in Rio and moved to Oslo couple of years ago. That may tell you something about my love for my hometown. Me and the nice people I work with at Zizzi thoight it would be a great idea to shoot their summer collection in Rio. Nothing wrong with summer clothes and Rio, right?
So as I produced it myself, I started scouting location first on my mind then going to the places. Based on the clothes and on the variety of scenarios, I picked Parque das Ruinas. Unique among the city’s many vantage points, this Park of Ruins is located a top a hill in the Santa Teresa district, next to Museu da Chácara do Céu, used to be an opulent residence built by homeopathy trailblazer and politician Joaquim Murtinho (1848-1911) and inherited by his niece, Laurinda Santos Lobo, who was known as the hostess of one of the most coveted salons, or social gatherings, of her time. The view from the city is the main highlight of the area. A real must go.
Then I worked with one of my favorite fashion photographer, Vitor Fernandes. He has a colorful and happy eye over fashion and I like that he is fresh and relaxed. The results always have a happy vibe in the pictures, reflecting my personality and the clothes I am wearing.

Polka dots always go well with colors.
Double layer top in floral print. Love the bright colors. Trendy buttom up denim skirt.
Very lightweight fabric with a cute print. Fits well all body types.
Summer dresses for party ocasions can be styles in so many ways. Dress it up or dress it down, pimp it up with acessories, endless possibilities. But when the designs got that romantic vibe, jut like the ones I am wearing in this editorial, it feels just so right to style them up in a more edgy way.
In these pictures I produced & styled wearing japanese plus size brand Varal de Moda +, the idea was to suggest the usage of sweet party dresses in a more bittersweet way, know what I mean? Leather, sandals and socks, denim jackets, you name it.
Remember I have been mentioning this brand here for a while now? Yes, their clothes are amazing. Such high quality finishing. I get wowed every time I touch their clothes. This is the spring/summer collection. I am just in love with everything.
What about the images, how do you like them?
