The Colombian Trend Fashion Show brought a new spice to Miami Swim Week’s runway shows, featuring looks from six of the hottest Colombian designers at W Hotel South Beach’s Wet Deck Lounge on Sunday, July 19, 2015. The show was sponsored by PROTELA and LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber. The 2016 resort wear collections from Maaji, Agua Bendita, Hernan Zajar, Malai, Babalú and Saha were a hit with the hundreds of editors, buyers and industry professionals surrounding the pool’s floating runway.
As the bikini-clad models strutted to upbeat, remixed music, the crowd bounced along to match colorful energy showcased on the runway. Bright colors, multi-colored fabrics, and flashy details highlighted the culture and passion of each brand’s Colombian pride.
Maaji’s “Rhapsody Road” collection is inspired by happy-go-lucky adventure and a modernized bohemian look, whereas Agua Bendita played with vibrant prints and graphics. The look of Hernan Zajar’s showcase was a sensual, magical Caribbean flair, focusing on female form. Boho prints merged with contemporary design in Malai’s 2016 collection; Babalú’s detailed approach to comfort and originality looked to inspire positivity; and Saha’s clean silhouettes complemented the exciting patterns.
The looks from each brand lit up the atmosphere with the Latin spice that Miami locals know and love. Feeding off the sexy, exotic vibe from the Colombian Trend Show, attendees felt the fiesta from their seats!
