In addition to the fashion shows, Minas Trend also has an exhibit featuring items by designer Patricia Bonaldi. The clothes show the playful atmosphere of gardens. They are embroidery-rich dresses with busy prints. The silhouette is reminiscent of Dior’s New Look of 1947, with a cinched waist and broad skirt.
In October, famed Italian blogger Chiara Ferragni, of the Blonde Salad blog, was seen wearing a long dress by Brazilian designer Patricia Bonaldi. The long-sleeved gown had a plunging neckline, a cut-out to the side of the waist and lots of embroidery.
In September, Patricia Bonaldi is having another major launch. PatBo, the designer’s juniors’ brand, has been invited to design a collection for C&A for a second time (the first was in late 2013). This time, the partnership has one more member: Mattel, maker of the Barbie doll.
The collection includes clothing, shoes, bags and accessories for both adults and kids. The items will go on sale at C&A stores on September 23.
Once again, Patricia Bonaldi has been found at a major international event. In August, Canadian TV host Keltie Knight wore a dress by the Brazilian designer during the Emmy Awards.
The elaborate dress has transparent black lace on top with beige sequin appliqués on the bottom.
