Los Angeles based designer Sabrina Brasil debuted her clothing line earlier this year with with a simple concept, a triangle fur bralette aka “Furléte” that caught fire and immediately garnered Brasil a devoted following.
Tapping into a photography background and a degree in business finance, University of Southern California graduate Brasil has expanded her cool and sexy line to include a full range of faux fur items, including skirts, bikinis and headpieces.
“One day I was just out in the alleys, which is a fashion district downtown, I see fur … [there] was so much fur. And it made me think like people don’t utilize fur,” commented Brasil in an interview with Jen’s Room 8. “People have fur jackets, fur coats, but people don’t really utilize fur like they could. So that was my first time buying fur last year and I ended up making a fur swimsuit. Just being out of the box. It wasn’t out for sale, but I got [lots] of inquiries. Girls DMing me “hey can you make me that” “omg hey can I get one, can you make me that”. I wasn’t designing or selling anything at that time. ”
