SWEET TALK SWIM
Designer Cheyenne Anderson brought the future to the runway with Sweet Talk Swim’s Fall/Winter 2019 collection. With beaming metallics, flashy colors, and neon hair highlights, the looks were both science-fiction and spring break. The show started off with an eye-catching black embellished bikini. Sheer shirred dresses with ruffled arms in baby blue, orange and neon green added wings to each model while the skin-tight black tracksuits were lined with bright red stitching and motorcycle helmets. The collection shifted towards loungewear with a cream colored satin robe. The show ended with a stunning black embellished cowl neck dress. After the show, model Luz Lopez, who sported a tight black cut-out jumpsuit and a biker helmet, gushed, “My favorite part of the show was the ambiance and, of course, that I was in it!”
Project Runway season 16 winner Kentaro Kameyana pulled off yet another successful runway show. He followed his classic black and white gothic theme, starting off with simple yet elegant bra tops and matching high-waisted bottoms and stockings. Oversized wide collar shirts were worn open and flowed with their ribbon tie detailing. The outfits then progressed into monochromatic black pieces that contrasted puffs to pleats. Each was decorated with a black headdress that sat on top and wrapped around the models’ heads. After a selection of cream hued ruffled mini dresses followed full blown puffy white mini dresses that flowed straight down from the neck like a cloud. In the final and most elegant piece, Kameyana showcased a nude bandeau top and an exquisite ruffled ballerina tutu. The model was decorated in glitter freckles and styled with a white headdress.
Sweet Talk Swim brought on the fun and heat with swimsuits and dresses, while Kentaro Kameyana left the runway dripping with elegance, making for an incohesive yet impressive show of creativity.
