As the rich and slim flocked to waterfront convention centre for Rio de Janeiro's glitzy biannual fashion show, prostitutes in a downtown square took to a cobblestone catwalk for a show of their own.
Sex workers from Davida, a Brazilian organisation that defends the rights of prostitutes, strutted through the streets wearing their new line of fall/winter clothes.
The brand's name is Daspu, is a play on "Daslu," one of Brazil's most expensive and exclusive fashion names being displayed across town by top models like Gisele Bundchen.
Gabriela Leite, a founder of Daspu, said it was no mistake that her show was taking place on the same day as Rio's fashion show.
"This fashion show today makes up part of our fall/winter collection that is not on the official agenda of Fashion Rio because we were never invited. Once again, social responsibility does not appear where it should appear," Leite said. – Reuters _________________ Freedom of speech is as much a responsibility as it is a right.
