DonataMeirelles Visits Prada Sao Paulo

In the next episode of Vogue’s QueroJá, DonataMeirelles was able to visit the Prada boutique in Sao Paulo, Brazil where she showed all the accessories and clothes of the pre-fall collection of the Italian label. For further information about Prada, the brand is owned by Miuccia Prada and is known for its minimalist, sophisticated, and intellectual style. The brand has a contemporary and provocative style that has succeeded in creating its own unique trends, revolutionizing style, and becoming part of the high-end fashion brands that we know in our society today. It exudes the true meaning of cutting-edge style ever since 1913. Prada has been producing accessories, bags, eyewear, clothes, and more for more than a century now and Donata simply admires how Miuccia was able to create and influence the world through her creative ideas and fabrics.

The style director of Vogue Brazil was able to witness how the Italian brand was able to produce seasonal trends. According to her, the brand has the power to merge image, structure, and concept through its own style that has the ability to go beyond trends. Miuccia Prada produces clothes and products that translate concepts into an intellectual universe that already became a benchmark for every man and woman who would want to change the norm and focus on their own self-expression when it comes to personal style. DonataMeirelles stated that Prada has a method that is very innovative, the brand draws inspiration by thoroughly and at the same time irregularly analyzing the society and this how their statement is born and it is based from the examination that is far from fashion such as photography, film, and art. This method helps Prada in building products that interpret reality from a different point of view, from their own perspectives that are unusual.

DonataMeirelles deeply understood why Prada is considered one of the most recognized brands in the industry of luxury and fashion. It has been considered as a prestigious brand that has been notable around the world because of its iconic trademarks such as their signature logo that has been a classic in the history of the brand, particularly in their nylon bags.

Doe Deere’s Not So Easy Journey

If you’re finding yourself struggling trying to follow your dreams and feeling like the best thing you can do for right now is to postpone them or give up altogether, then perhaps you can use a little inspiration. Grab a cup of tea or coffee, get comfortable, and open your mind to be inspired.

Although it might seem that a lot of entrepreneurs have it easy, rest assured they’ve had their fair share of struggles too. Take the Lime Crime founder, Doe Deere for example.

Doe Deere grew up admiring the US and all the different opportunities, food, music and everything else about it. She was born in Russia —as Xenia Vorotova— but at the age of 17, she and her family finally decided to make their move to the US. Knowing that it would be a challenge, she and her family made New York their destination. They were determined to work their way to the top.

Despite their determination, they realized that they hadn’t saved enough and weren’t making enough to keep a roof over their heads. After a while of struggling and her mom having to pick up extra work, Doe and her family checked into a homeless shelter. While in the shelter, to escape her reality, Doe often dreamed about being in the fashion industry.

Despite their situation, they continued to work and save with the hopes of soon getting back on their feet.

One day, in 1999, they were relieved. Doe and her family were introduced to an organization that helped women in similar situations. Through that organization, not only did they help her mother find a decent job, but they also helped her get accepted into a fashion institute.

With a passion for entrepreneurship, Doe Deere founded Lime Crime in 2008. Although she doesn’t wish what she and her family had to go through on anyone, she recognizes the fact that going through what they went through is what made them stronger and even more ambitious today.

Doe’s story is the perfect example that despite the struggles, there’s still an upside. Your dreams will always be worth the shot.
