Clothes history: According to Hildegard Angel (2017), "Festa de São João" was chosen as the name of the stamp, because Zuzu Angel wanted to take over Brazilian folklore, which was ridiculed at the time. The print is exclusive, was created by Zuzu Angel and later patented by Hildegard Angel. About the exquisite modeling of the piece, Hildegard Angel reports: The seamstresses of the time were valued for knowing how to make molds. Zuzu Angel learned from Alicinha Quintanilha (modeler of DeMillus / Catalina, who did the missi's bathing suit but died anonymously.) She said that: "Brazilian body is different because of the curvilinear type". Zuzu Angel plunged into the study with Alicinha, even after being consecrated. She became a personal friend and took Alicinha to Joan Crawfoard's dinner. Katia Johansen [curator of the exhibition at Ocupación Zuzu] suggested paperdoll to present journalists or guests at the opening, because, according to her, this dress is highly elaborated and emblematic.
