Title:Political protest dress [long sleeve]
Wedding dress of the political protest show that is part of the International Dateline Collection III, which is divided in three themes, the last of them being political protest.
The fashion show took place on September 13th 1971, the year her son died, at the residence of Lauro Sotello Alves, Brazilian Consul at New York, later placed on display throughout the week at the Gotham Hotel. [This show is considered to be a milestone on Zuzu Angel’s professional trajectory, due to the fact that it was when she first launches her protest fashion].
According to Hildegard Angel, (testimonial on 01/2014) the dress is all embroidered with references to military dictatorship, airplanes from which political prisoners were thrown, caged birds that would be the young, all seen through the bars. Anyway, a simple way, with childish traits, all this showed that moment of sadness that lived the Country. Everything had to be said in a very subtle way, very subliminal to understand the message and at that moment the meaning was extraordinary. Fashion has a revolutionary force that never goes out.
