Models strut in Rio streets after fashion week failFrustrated over the cancellation of Rio Fashion Week, several young models took their runway strutting to the streets, defiantly showing off the creations they had planned to wear on the catwalk. The women and their designers said they were happy to have a chance to showcase the creations they would have worn if next month’s Fashion Week had gone on as planned. “We were supposed to have a fashion show in November but it was cancelled, and now the show that was supposed to be held in April has been cancelled as well,” said Nadine Gonzalez, founder of ModaFusion, venting her frustration. Gonzalez also runs a school for youth from Rio’s favelas aspiring to careers in fashion, whose models were left without a catwalk after the cancellation of Fashion Week.
