Highlights: In his debut at Fashion Rio, Bianca Marques, who was part of the line-up of the Rio-à-Porter, took the long experience she had as a dancer before becoming a designer, to create a collection inspired by the universe of dance. She was right to not surrender to literalism and 2012 showed a winter replete with references to ballet without falling into the category “fancy dancer”. But of course, the allusions were all there: Mondays skins long sleeve pink knitwear, flowing skirts (with any tulle), details of drapery that resembled the shape of tutus, prints of swans, entwined ribbon details. Point to the parts to these elements together some charming details such as beads applied to a cardigan knit and brightness of the second skins.
