Wella Professional was the Title Sponsor this year. Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace set up a lovely scene for guests to get the feel in how comfortable it will be to reserve your stay at the hotel. Fashion goes along with beauty; Napoleon Predis and Glamglow sponsored and displayed a variety of make-up which will make anyone feel beautiful any day. Anyone was welcome to stop by and touch up their makeup or even get beauty tips. Sugar Scout displayed punky jewelry for viewing.
Opening performance was “Midnight Red”. The singing group danced all over the runway. Towards the end, the microphones went dead, but that did not stop the group from singing and entertaining.
Now was the time to showcase the designer’s Spring/Summer 2013 designs. Culture Swimwear started off the festivities. It was all about spring colors like pink, blue, orange, purple and greens. What a way to make a lady feel sexy. High waist bottoms designs on a few were perfect for those who want to cover more, but then show a little skin. Also, some of the swimwear had strings hanging on the sides of the bottom portion. What a great idea. Swimwear with lace and knitted backs made the swimwear look more girly.
Amelie Swimwear by Andrea Abaunza had a different idea of Spring/Summer swimwear. Blue, purple, hot pink, orange and a mixture of green were her idea of bringing a splash of color. A sheer top cover up made the swimsuit feel more fashionable when you go to the beach. Comfortable long sheer dresses covered the swimwear. She had a great selection of colors and styles for both adults and children.
Kate Swim by Katherine Bruening, Kate had a crafty side in designing her selection. Kate knows it is all about the colors that make a statement. Purple, pink, orange, light green with strings of rhinestones and shimmering jewels made you feel rich and beautiful. Some of the bikinis had hanging strings and embedded in the fabric with shining jewels. One designer decided to make you feel like a cowgirl with the front portion covered with hanging strings of color. All you need the boots.
Last of the designers was Nicolita/Havana Nights by Christina Milian. Singer, Christina Milian is not only a superstar, but a contributed swimsuit designer. Christina Milian, is an American singer-songwriter, actress, dancer, and model born in Jersey City. Now she joins forces with Nicolita, they both brought the attention to the runway with dark feels of color like black and leopard prints. The mixture of black, green, and white made you feel you are not only at the beach, but in a jungle to. The statement brings out the wild in you. Bringing forward rhinestones on the swimsuit also made you feel rich and noticeable. Swimwear can also consist of black long dresses to use to cover up when it is cold at the beach or even a pool party.
The swimwear collections presented this day was designed for ladies to enjoy. The designers were all clever in selecting the right colors, fabrics and even jewels for Spring/Summer collection. What a way to make a statement when you enjoy the beach or even a pool party. To see more decorative swimwear, you can go to the designer’s website for viewing.
