Born in Rio de Janeiro, A.Z Araujo grew uup in the town of Boqueirão, Paraiba,
Brazil where he worked on his parents’ farm. There, he was inspired by his aunt Maria, who made clothes for prominent people in the small town.
A.Z returned to Rio to pursue a career in acting, starring in several soap operas,
soon going on to design costumes and learning about bespoke tailoring.
Eventually A.Z wound up in New York where he founded his label, which combines the sexiness of Brazil and the chic modernity of New York.
