The Louis Vuitton fashion show was held at the Niteroi Contemporary Art Museum, designed by Oscar Niemeyer.  The building sits on a cliff overlooking the beach and Rio’s mountainous landscape, and the models walked out from the building’s winding, red ramp which doubled as the runway.  We were seated on mismatched, colorful crates all lined up in a single row.

The show opened with space-like dresses in bright reds, blues, and yellows with cutouts at the stomach or sides.  Bold fabrics were stitched together like a kaleidoscope.

Interesting combinations were seen down the runway, such as this floral sundress worn over a sequin top
