Izaura Demari: Eccentricity.
2.FM24: Your definition for “fashion” is … ?
Izaura: The truth for me is that fashion can be classic, contemporary, modern, minimalist, cool, vintage or any other style that I am looking for a concept that fits my own everyday style for my editorials. My style is creative, my way, my color and with big hats, which, considerably, are my mark in my looks. I can go from handmade to sophisticated with my fashion, which I can say is authorial.
3.FM24: Most fashionable city for you, favourite style/brand and your “MUST” item are ..?
Izaura: The most elegant city is Paris, I love the classic style! Paris means 365 days of fashion created alongside the catwalks, a festival of styles and creativity in freedom. Elegant or extravagant, tumultuous or precious, each neighborhood has its own mood and its version of fashion.
My favorite brand is Reinaldo Lourenço. He has been in the market since 1984 and specializes in women’s fashion, being among the leading designers in Brazil. With the work focused on haute couture, always transmitting cultural ideas and values to the public he serves.
The item that cannot be missing in my closet is the hat. I have a collection cataloged in more or less 720 hats. They are my brand within the style I have built.
4.FM24: Your wish for the future of the fashion world would be … ?
Izaura: Inclusive fashion for everyone. It goes beyond clothes adapted for people who have some kind of difficulty and its objective is to simplify the act of dressing, taking into account the physical and psychological needs of each individual.
The main purpose of those who make inclusive fashion is to offer comfortable, simple and practical clothes for all types of bodies and audiences. That is, the intention is to facilitate the act of dressing, but without neglecting the beautiful and innovative designs that, after all, we all look for when we go shopping.
