Just one year later she received the prestigious VH1 Fashion Award as ‘Best newcomer in Fashion’. She continued to make solely womenswear until 2003 when she presented her 2003-2004 Menswear collection, in the construction of her silhouettes Branquinho enjoyed playing with a mixture of elements from male
and female wardrobes, both in terms of tailoring and in terms of material.

Veronique based the silhouette and shape of the jacket on a classic moto jacket, with details such as the belted neck, panelled sleeves and construction on the front and back panels. However, combining this with military epaulettes and a practical four-pocket construction on the front. A standout pieces and look 1 from the A/W 05-06 collection.
