Livre’s stylish arrival to parliament on its first day ever put immediately all media platforms discussing the concept of formal wear. The idea for the advisor to MP Joacine Katar Moreira, was to “put in perspective parliament’s masculinity”.
Joacine Katar Moreira, representative of the Livre party, caused a sensation during the campaign not only for her famous stuttering but also for her bright and unconventional proposals in issues such as equality and environment.
Her advisor, former Oxford student Rafael Esteves Pereira, accompanied her on her first day wearing a skirt. News agencies and social media exploded, some accusing him of not being respectful to the parliament and others applauding his courage of defying dress code in politics.
