Fashion Palette Miami Australian Swim Show for Spring-Summer 2019 – MalenDyer Picks
During Miami Swim Week, Fashion Palette showcased four Australian designers – VDM The Label, TJ Swim, Lil & Emm and Aqua Blu. The chosen venue was at the Setai South Beach where we got seated in an open-air patio where we felt as if we stepped into a tropical oasis. The hotel itself was originally built between in the early 1930s, as the Dempsey Vanderbilt Hotel.
For this installment of Fashion Palette Miami Australian Swim Show for spring-summer 2019, we have rounded up our key looks from each show.
We saw a blend of the 90s with scrunchies and high-waisted bikini bottoms and one could say the current high-fashion trend of wearing sneakers. For us, the stand out of this collection was the use of velvet fabric. We would be interested to see how this would hold up in water, although, we do not think that’s the point of this material. Instead, this suit would be great to lounge by the beach or pool or even layer for a night out.
And, here are some additional looks from the show…
This brand by Tara Jane is known for its high cuts and minimalistic designs. It is the latter we appreciate the most. For the show, we saw the inclusion of fanny packs, which is something we saw heavily on the fashion runways. Here is a sampling of some of our favorite looks.
Lil & Emm
Sheree Lily Giles and Emma Knieriem are the designers behind this brand. For this show, the duo took a casual vibe with the models walking down the runway barefoot where at times, the accessories took center stage. Our hero piece was the mesh longsleeve crop top with. For this look, it works, and it offers something different we had not yet seen on the runways.
Rounding out this review are a few other images from the show.
Closing out this edition of Fashion Palette Miami Swim Week was Aqua Blu. There were a few notable highlights of this collection, including their use of mesh fabric, their longsleeve one piece swimsuits that emulated rash guards in more fashionable way and their bridal moment, giving a nod to the tradition of Haute Couture Fashion Week.
