Clothes history: The black dress was worn by Zuzu Angel at the final moments of her political protest fashion show, featuring the International Dateline Collection II, which took place in 1971, at the residence of Lauro Sotello Alves, the Brazilian Consul in New York. The look was composed by a crucifix belt, a necklace with a white angel and a headscarf that revealed her state of mourning. According to Hildegard Angel, this is an allegorical look, which includes a headscarf, shawl and necklace. After the show, Zuzu Angel wore this dress in several public spaces. A replica was made for the “Museu Histórico Nacional” (National Historic Museum), which took place in 1996. [20/01/2017 Hildegard Angel statement]
