"The joyous carnival atmosphere of Brazil's seaside city shines through Camilla's SS17/18 collection, From Rio With Love. Infused with samba soul, the garments flow as if powered by music and dance embodying an electic vibe. The label's signature clashing prints move through a kaleidoscope of colour from Aztec Graphics to Leopard Print, Botanicals, Fruits and Tropical Birds. Get lost in the celebration and move to the beat as this flamboyant collection puts on an energetic parade."
It was such a pleasure attending the Swim + Resort Series run by Fashion Council W.A. for the first time this year. I adore our beaches so I was super excited to finally view and photograph a fashion runway set at City Beach. The Sunday show included both the WA Designer Runway Show and Camilla: From Rio With Love but, this post is all about the Camilla Show as it was super fun, vibrant and entertaining.
I loved how Camilla's show brought a Rio celebration to us in Perth. From the incredible dancers to drum performers and even the models looked like they had a lot of fun on the runway - smiling, dancing, cheering on with the crowd yet still remaining professional. It really was nothing like the other shows I've seen before - the positive energy put a smile to my face and left me feeling inspired and energized. The garments were absolutely beautiful - definitely not something you would normally see in my wardrobe as their pieces are super colourful but I do love their off shoulder tops and fish tail ruffle skirts. I have decided to wear more colour this year and I think a lot of you agree considering the poll I put up last week - 70% of you voted colour vs. 30% voted minimal. I hope this all these outfits have left you yearning for Summer cos I know I am desperate for a hot day so I can hit the beach - but first, I may need to find a new bikini. Currently eyeing this one from Camilla and this one from Amore and Sorvete.
