setaSummarized Background

The Instituto Zuzu Angel de Moda do Rio de Janeiro, a civil not-for-profit entity , was founded in October of 1993 stemming from an idea by journalist Hildegard Angel, the daughter of the fashion designer who gives the name to this institution.

The Instituto's primary intention is to attract attention to the creations and production of the Brazilian culture, which has been expressing itself more and more through fashion. Promoting fashion as free expression of the Brazilian culture is to preserve our roots and to redeem our history. Promoting fashion as a business is to create jobs and attract funds to our country. Conquering frontiers through the international recognition of our fashion industry is to reaffirm the pride in being Brazilian.

Many achievements have been made in these 12 years and some of them are:

  • Creating and preserving at out institution one of the largest fashion collections in the country, showcasing the work of the most important Brazilian and international designers.

  • Hosting the I Brazilian Fashion Conference, attended by Hubert de Givenchy, Oscar de la Renta, Philipe Venet, Miss Eleanor Lambert and Annet de Goldstein.

  • Signing international agreements for the exchange of students with ESMOD – École Supérieure de Mode – France and the Université de La Mode de Lyon.
