Luli Fama put the show in "fashion show ". Their presentation started with a dramatic tropical storm hitting the tents, lightning flashes wrapping around the clear roof and guests praying in their seats it wouldn't collapse. Eventually, the show opened with a bright feathered trio of Brazilian dancers to set the party tone.
What followed was one of the most though out swimwear runways of the week. The festive use of color remained throughout with ruffled bikini tops and bottoms that emphasized the curves behind to maximum advantage. Prints had an updated Latin flair, mixing large roses with dots and animal patterns.
Subtle, this collection was not. Bikinis had fringe or tassles on the side to emphasize hip and bust shaking movement. Fabrics had a lot of shine. Cut-outs were strategically placed to reveal skin in as many ways as artfully possible.
