THE THEME: RUFFLES AND BEIGE

TIME & PLACE:
Sometime after 9:00p.m., Thursday, July 16th
The OASIS tent at the Raleigh Pool, Miami Beach

As the show was in the Oasis [the sandy venue] it was appropriate that the girls walked out barefoot as opposed to in the usual stilettos.
RETRO touches such as the bubble rubber beach caps our Mother wore to the pool in the sixties and oversize Carrie Donovan style sunglasses added a bit of fun.

HIGHPOINT: the day glow-front halter pink maillot

Everything’s an alteration – unless you are lucky enough to afford couture. That would include bathing suits. No, it’s NOT crazy to have your seamstress alter your bathing suit. More than one model was tugging on bottoms that seemed a trifle baggy, during the show.
ONGOING TREND: By the time the show was over, we could say with confidence that the ROMPER is a trend that has legs and a fun addition to your warm weather wardrobe.

THE DESIGNER
We met designer, MARIA DOBRZANSKA REEVES a few days later, at the XTRA LIFE LYCRA SHOW a few nights later. We’ve always been fans of young designers, and were pleasantly surprised to find out that MARIA is just that. Although the collection she showed this season was thematic and heavily retro, she shows promise. We’re looking forward to her next collection.
