Isabela Capeto

 The designer Isabela Capeto graduated from the Accademia di Moda in Florence.

She worked with some of the most important Brazilian brands until she opened her own store in 2003.

From a small workshop in Rio de Janeiro, she went to a store in one of the most charming parts of the city and broke boundaries, taking her clothes over fifty countries, including Barneys and Macy’s, in the United States, Browns, in England, Colette and Le Bon Marché, in France; Saks and Harveys Nichols, in the Arab emirates.

In 2008, Isabela Capeto was part of the “Neotropicália” at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, with an embroidery panel. A collection which was exhibited at the Museu de Arte Moderna in São Paulo, where Isabela presented a mosaic with 296 photos of women wearing her clothes.

A journey, a landscape, a book or simply a person can serve as inspiration for collections, which do not require the trends of world fashion. Plenty of embroidery, fabric reuse, dyeing tricks and applications make her work a distinctive brand that has the face of Brazil.

When I got to the Bordallo factory I went crazy with all those wonders... Everything was fantastic to curse someone, or to offer as a gift! I then decided to bring together what is most common when you think about this subject: I got the pig, which impressed me a lot, the fruits and the vegetables, and put everything on leaves thus turning all these elements into a single thing. Although they are separate pieces I wanted to give the impression that this was found in a rain forest along with lizards, flies and bees. I wanted it to be a real still-life!
