Luli Fama 2018 Collection
Luli Fama's fashion show for their 2018 swimwear collection was held at the Collins Park Tent on July 22nd, 2017. It happened during Fashion Week Miami Beach, which is sponsored by Funkshion. The widely known, international brand was started back in 2003 by siblings, Lourdes and Augusto Hanimian.
As usual, the turnout of attendees was incredible! Guests who weren't able to find a seat, happily stood by, waiting for the show to start while enjoying the Latin music. Once everyone was situated, lights went off and the spotlight shined on a performer, who was playing the trumpet. As he walked towards the front of the runway playing his trumpet, a drummer and two dancers followed to provide an excellent performance, full of Latin culture, for the audience. Meanwhile, the two big screens on the wall read "Viva Cuba". A slide show of pictures of Cuba's landscape, architecture, and people, played until the end, revealing the designers' inspiration and setting the mood for the show . Everyone loved it! Once again, Luli Fama was successful at making sure their show was not only a show but also an experience.
Shannon De Lima, a very popular model in the Latin world (also Marc Anthony's ex-wife), started the show by walking down the runway looking more beautiful than ever in Luli Fama's first look. She seemed to have all the special pieces, including the final look. The music was upbeat as models showcased over 70 different looks. Every design seemed to speak to a different kind of personality. Over-all, it was meant to speak to the girl who just wants to live her life, relax, and have fun!
The collection included a variety of bikinis, cover ups, monokinis and more. Some designs had long sleeve tops and crop tops as part of their swimwear look; it was very interesting to see how well that played together. There were lots of flirty ruffles, dangerous cuts, pastels, and patterns mixed of flowers, tribal prints, and a little animal print. All the pieces were simply amazing.
At the end of the show, models walked down the runway smiling, dancing, and encouraging the crowd to dance and have fun too. It was a blast for everyone!
