Rio de Janeiro may not be one of the four major fashion weeks, but it is definitely one of the sexiest. Rio Fashion Week is a 5-day fashion celebration with many beautiful Brazilian models strutting on the catwalk in bikinis and swimsuits. This year’s trends show that there are endless ways to design bikinis.
Whether the designs were printed, plain, edgy or conservative, the many Brazilian designers went all out for these swim and beachwear. As many of the models impressed the audience in what they were wearing, it was Victoria’s Secret Angel Izabel Goulart who modeled a one-of-a-kind leopard print string bikini from designer Cia Maritima that turned heads.
Another color-inspired line was the Sao Paulo based brand, Triya, that showed off their psychedelic beachwear vision for their 2012 summer collection. Triya bikinis are a definite head turner for this upcoming summer style.
Although the sexy fashion celebrations have already begun, it is exciting to see what other colorful surprises local designers are going to be presenting. –Sharifa Daniels
