Not in the shadows of Rio De Janeiro’s biannual fashion show did prostitutes hold their own extravagazna. No, they performed their open-air show in the center of the city. A place famous for Carnival jamborees. Davida – a non-governmental organization that defends the rights of sex service workers – showed their styles to hundreds of onlookers. Speaking with Reuters Doroth de Castro said, “We managed to get recognized. Our working clothes exploit sensuality and fetish.”
Daspu is the name of the new line. It is a play on “Daslu,” the name of Brazil’s high end boutique.
Onlookers from far and wide attended the show, even those from the Rio events watched the Davida show.
DeCastro says, “We’re thin, fat, old and young. Not like those models that are all thin,We have flesh that men like.”
