The shows started yesterday with the collections of Lisa Burke, designer of Lisa Blue. The designer stated: “When I started Lisa Blue in 2008 it was sheer determination, great passion and long hours of hard work that lead to the wonderful opportunity to partake in a group show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim. The overwhelming success and feedback from that show had an immense impact on the Lisa Blue brand, opening doors for us in the US and Europe, and even furthered our recognition back home in Australia. Four years later, we are honored to be featured as the designer kicking off the event and look forward to delighting the audience and continuing to spread our heartfelt brand message: the importance of saving the whales and making a difference in our planet.”
Monday, July 23rd will see two multi-line shows of top swimwear designers in the Cabaña Grande at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim. Aguaclara and Aquarella Swimwear will once again be returning to the runway, alongside Cote D'Or Swimwear and Sauvage who will be debuting their 2013 collections in the first group show at 8:00pm. Later that evening, the much anticipated second group runway show will feature rising talent Anna Kosturova, Dorit, Keva | J and Naïla.
