Exhibition about designers and lacemakers from Brazil
Exhibition named “Renda-se” by Dudu Bertolini is in the “A Casa”, an São Paulo City museum by the end of June. The designer was invited, by Renata Mellão, to mapping the lacemaker communities, then he invited other designers to compose a look with an exclusive embroidery lace.
