Every year the WA Swim and Resort series gets better and better. As the Summer is here and the temperatures begin to soar Perth got glamorous and presented one of the best fashion shows of the year.
This year the Fashion Council of WA presented two days of gorgeous Swim and Resort wear to make you swoon. The first day was held at Point Fraser Boardwalk overlooking the Swan River. Manning Cartell presented a stunning runway with so many styles that I want in my own wardrobe! Gold floaty dresses, gorgeous white blazer’s and sultry evening glamour.
The Second day we made our way to gorgeous City Beach. A runway covered in sand and flagged by tropical palm trees set the scene for the first showcase of designers. The first line up included: Ambra Maddalena, Amore + Sorvete, House of SKYE, Kirrikin Summer, Ocean Zone, SEI Bella Aqua Wear and SKYE & Staghorn, with Morrison opening the show.
An array of bikini’s, one-pieces, resort wear and even men’s board shorts were on offer.
The second part of the show was for Camilla and this runway was certainly my favourite. The collection was called ‘From Rio with Love’ and it embodied everything that Camilla is, free spirited, bohemian with an absolute zest for life.
The prints were simply divine with a mix of leopards, botanicals, fruits and tropical birds. Kaftans, gorgeous flowing dresses, sexy playsuits, swimwear and at the very end even children’s pieces.
Once again the Swim + Resort Series managed to wow and inspire.
