'Evo Fashion' hits Bolivia

When President-elect &to=http://english.pravda.ru/world/20/91/368/16649_Morales.html' target=_blank>Evo Morales wore a brightly striped sweater on his world tour, the fashion police howled.

But now "Evo Fashion" could sweep Bolivia, with a factory churning out hundreds of knock-offs of the famous sweater he donned in Europe, China and South Africa.

While some are speculating on Morales' cabinet picks, others are wondering whether he'll wear the same fuzzy maroon, white and blue pullover to his swearing-in ceremony Sunday.

Raul Valda, who operates a factory in the hills of the capital of La Paz where seamstresses work feverishly at sewing machines, said his designers began working on 1,000 sweaters after people flocked to stores requesting the Evo-style sweater.

"This is going to become a line we call 'Evo Fashion' that we hope will appeal to young people," Valda said.
