Over 500 guests including top media, influencers and buyers,?attended the WET Lounge, at the W?South Beach, to experience a rocking runway show. Indah debuted its 2016 collection, “Collage”,?during Swim Week 2016.
By definition a collage is assembling different elements to create a new whole, and the designer, Libby Desantis,?showcased her new vision with various looks inspired by different eras: 20’s art deco,?70’s punk rock,?layered with?80’s glam and?90’s minimalism. Collaborating with artist, Anya Brock, Indah’s color palette is drawn from an?abstract?painting.
Pops of painterly prints and bright?hues are?contrasted well against darker styles.?Handmade with?love?from Bali, chains, studs, sequins, leather, lattice?lace, shag and bones are?incorporated?into?this?collection, effortlessly adding an edgy statement to wearable fashion.
“The word BADASS best defines the collection”-Libby.
High?wispy?hair and?loose intricate?braids added volume to each look. By using styling products of the highest caliber from?Ren? Furterer, and adding depth with luxe hair extensions from?Indique, the hairstyle created?a rocker chic meets Mad Max style.?The look was?straight forward,?yet simultaneously feminine.?It was a smoke show with?Ted Gibson’s?bold, black smokey eyes and?UooLaa’s?luscious lashes–creating drama that emulates the collection.
FakeBake?provided a bronzed goddess look?while?Zoya?provided?professional?nail care.??Midnight navy and metallic silver polishes?popped against the tan?models.?These colors provided a posh elegance which complimented the?tough looks of the metal jewelry provided by?Blaine Bowen, which included an assortment of fringed cuffs, braided bracelets and ear-cuffs.
Electric Eyewear, available at?Nordstroms.com, provided sunnies that mirrored?the Collage Collection. Sleek frames?with blackout lenses added to the overall look of the Indah woman: a confident,?unapologetic mermaid with an?”I don’t care”?attitude.
Indah was also excited to have sponsor support from?Airelle, a premier natural skin care line recommended by top dermatologists and plastic surgeons,?Silk?n Flash & Go,?the at-home solution for painless, permanent hair removal and?Braza,?a functional, problem solving collection of products that provide women comfort, confidence and a carefree positive dressing experience.
