Meet Marisa de Oliveira, a Brazilian fashion designer shining a spotlight on African fashion.

The message in my designs is love for culture. Brazil is more African than anything!

Meet Marisa de Oliveira. She is a fashion designer based in Rio de Janeira and her fashion collection is 100% African. "All I know about fashion, I learned from Africans when I was studying in France," says Marisa.

Marisa's inspiration comes from the special history of Africans in Brazil. She wants to shed a positive light of the big African culture in Brazil and also bring to attention how Africans came to Brazil and their conditions. "The message in my designs is love for culture. Brazil is more African than anything!"

Enjoy some beautiful photos from Marisa's 100% African collection.
