The São Paulo Fashion Week is an clothing trade show held semi-annually in São Paulo. It is notable as "Latin America's pre-eminent fashion event"[1] and it is considered the fifth largest fashion week after in the world behind New York, London, Paris and Milan.[2] It has been controversial in the past because of a "longstanding bias towards white models."
