American fashion designer, Rachel Roy (Vincentian heritage) has collaborated Brazilian singer Seu Jorge in an exclusive collection, Brasil available this summer.
“One of my favorite things about designing is being able to collaborate with different artists to create interesting ideas and products. I like to collaborate with people that are amazing at what they do in areas that I want to learn about and grow in. When I visited Brasil I was so inspired by the vibrancy of the country. The essence of Brasil comes through in so many different forms: music, nature, architecture, the people. Everything I saw inspired me to collaborate with music icon, Seu Jorge. He really wants to bring joy, hope and change to the people of Brasil through his music. What we created I hope captures the unbreakable spirit and tradition of the Brazilian people and continues to inspire my girl to dress with an independent voice.” – RACHEL ROY
“I decided to do this because of the challenge. Rachel is full of talent and I believe it is a great opportunity for me to learn about fashion. In this moment, especially now, I have a lot to say about Brasil, and want to expose the world to this wonderful culture.” – SEU JORGE
Seu Jorge is a well known Samba singer, songwriter and also an actor, appearing in City of God.
Rachel Roy’s brand has previously collaborated with the New York Knicks’ Amar’e Stoudemire, surfer Karina Petroni among others.
