Fause Haten (São Paulo, October 1) is an artist who emerged on the Brazilian scene as a fashion designer for the generation that rekindled national fashion in the 90s. His work in fashion was of great contribution, at a time when, at the hands of Paulo Borges, fashion shows in Brazil began to resurface after a long hiatus.

He was considered one of the main talents of fashion design in Brazil until mid-2010, when he began to transform his presence in fashion and began his career in the performing and visual arts.
In the last few years, he has been standing out as a costume designer, visual artist and performer.

Born in São Paulo, he is the son of Lebanese immigrants who arrived in Brazil, took up residence in the region of 25 de Março and started a clothing industry there. At the age of 16 with the aim of traveling abroad, he started making clothes to sell.

In 1986, the designer launched his own brand, Der Haten, opening his first store at Av Cotovia in Moema.

In January 1992, he held his first fashion show, sharing the catwalk with Walter Rodrigues, who also launched his authorial brand after working on several companies.

Today, more than anything, I feel like a performer. In music I see myself as an actor who sings. In the theater I sometimes find myself still trying to hide the designer. In fashion I often feel that I am acting.

What theater brought to my work in fashion was the truth. The truth of being who I am, as I am. Assume the artist with all the doubts and questions. I want to continue doubting, not taking myself too seriously.

I want to continue making art and trying to make the world more beautiful. Intersecting all universes, creating connections between talented people and always knowing that I am only halfway there.
