DASPU

A group of Brazilian prostitutes, who are members of the NGO “DaVida” and like fashion, decided to launch a fashion brand: DASPU. For now they only have t-shirts, but they plan to extend the scope of their work. The t-shirts are part of the “activism” collection, focusing on Human Rights and HIV/AIDS prevention, but new collections are yet to come: the “battle” collection (street and home clothes); the “leisure” collection (for beach, parks and gardens); and the “madness” collection (for carnival and parties in general). Apart form its fashion value, this initiative is also a way of promoting the civic rights of prostitutes and I hope it will help to change the minds of many people, in Brazil and elsewhere. Even though it is only in Portuguese, I recommend a visit to their website.
