Causa e efeito (Afrourbebrasileira Fashion of the 21st century. Traditions and appropriations. Cause and effect) that will be held on Saturday, October 27th at 10 am at the University of Brasília, in the nation’s capital city.

The event is part of the programming FLAAC 2012.

Event mediator Renata Felinto* will moderate the guests in the discussion of such topics as: Can we say that there is today in Brazil an Afro-Brazilian Fashion? Guests will include Jaergenton de Souza Correa (of Ateliê Hagadimae Despig), Tenka Dara (of Baobá Brasil), Bruna Battys, Júlia Vidal (of Balaco) and José Nabor (of Omenelick Afro-Brasilidades magazine) will address the relationships that underlie the link between the cultures, traditions, appropriations and interrelationships between cultures.
