André Piva & Carlos Tufvesson

Carlos Tufvesson is a renowned fashion designer in Brazil. He attended Domus Academy, in Milan, Italy. In 2000, he opened a space in Ipanema: One side his atelier, the other a store front. In 2001, he released his fist prêt-à-porter collection during the Semana Barra Shopping, a precursor event to Fashion Rio. In 2004 Tufvesson introduced his work internationally at the São Paulo Fashion Week.

Tufvesson, who is openly gay, is well known for his activism in Brazil, especially for activities benefiting HIV/AIDS causes, but also for equal rights to access marriage, as it is administered and extended by the state. Architect André Piva is his life-partner, and both are well-recognized personalities, both by the LGBT community as well as the carioca society (i.e. the Who is who list in the city of Rio de Janeiro).

On November 15, 2011, he married his 16 years partner, Andre Piva, during a ceremony including friends and many personality of the Rio's society. Glorinha Pires Repello, Carlos's mother, said: "This marriage was a battle, a political act against prejudice"
