Fashion designer, Trina Turk, kicked off Mercedes Benz Swim Week in grand fashion last night. It was a full house in the Big Tent at the Raleigh Hotel on South Beach. Of course, I had a great seat! As I situated myself and waited for the show to begin, I checked out the crowd. Fellow blogger and journalist, Joanie Cox, was nearby, as was Aaron Glickman. I also spotted PR maven, Tara Solomon of Tara Ink. Of course, NO fashion show in Miami goes down without celebrity stylist, Leon Frager, in attendance. And right in front of him, rapper Bow Wow, accompanied by Pastry shoe diva, Angela Simmons. After the show, I met up with Lyanne and Jeannette Roger, who own the posh Coral Gables boutique, Nic del Mar. They were with their gorgeous Mom. I also checked out the swag bag on my chair, which included a too cute pendant and chain by Trina.
Finally the show began and Trina Turk did NOT disappoint. Noted for her fabulous use of color and pattern, Trina contined the trend with her new collection. Her accessories are fabulous, as well. I can’t wait to see her Saturday, when she’s hosting a meet and greet at her Bal Harbour boutique. I met her last year at the Grand Opening of this boutique–here’s the story, complete with video.
