First it discusses the rise of Brazilian fashion magazines against the background of the development in Rio de Janeiro of the printing and clothes industries. Second, by examining the section ‘Modas’/‘Fashions’ against the pictorial and other textual contents of the above-mentioned periodicals, it presents the principal characteristics of the first Brazilian fashion magazines and establishes the origins of the Brazilian fashion editorial as a journalistic genre.
