His journey to becoming this week’s Instagram style pick began in the Southern Hemisphere. Nei Andrade (www.instagram.com/neibr958) started leafing through fashion magazines as a boy in Brazil. He later graduated with a degree from the Universidade Veiga de Almeida in Rio de Janeiro, and worked in Brazil’s bustling fashion industry. Then, he arrived in Peabody. OK, it may not sound like the most logical progression, but the 37-year-old’s fascination with the US led him here.
Andrade now works as a fashion stylist in Boston, taking his inspiration from what he sees on the streets and on the runway. He humbly adds that he can take any piece of clothing and make it look remarkable. Clearly, this man has never seen the contents of my closet. Time to put the spotlight on Andrade — and his love of shoes and sunglasses.
