Fashion Made in Prison

Cultural centre Itaú in São Paulo organised a fashion show days before the opening of São Paulo Fashion Week. The difference is the outfits below were made by 70 female prisoners from Butantã's Prison. "To create and produce something makes me feel free. It's like being back to society." said one of the designers. The initiative is from the ngo FNAP. The foundation ensures that in 18 months, none of the prisoners who participated in the project have committed any crime since they left prison.
