Dream-like galactic and aboriginal prints glided down the runway for swimwear label Lisa Blue’s first individual show at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week 2011. Designer Lisa Burke presented her strongest swim collection yet, a stunning array of colour, detail and hardware in a range of hot styles.

Launched just over two years ago, Lisa Blue has been supporting the Australian Whale Conservation Society, donating 25% of profits from the sale of swimwear and accessories to continuing efforts for the mammal’s protection in Australia.

Encapsulating Lisa’s passion for art, the collection features a number of prints from the mystical ET angel to bold colour with the Bollywood story, studs and metallics in Galactic Warrior, Romance Era art in Divinity and the Indigenous-inspired Pretty Shells story. Australian stylist-extraordinaire Mark Vassallo is the show Creative Director, helping Burke to bring her vision to the runway, Lisa Blue also collaborated with Cloud Nine and St. Tropez for the show.

Lisa Burke, Designer, Lisa Blue comments;

“There’s an incredible buzz about taking on an individual show at RAFW this year. Lisa Blue is like my third child, and sending all the combined creativity out there on the runway is the next step on the design journey.

Support here and in the US has been incredible and it’s our aim that with every passing year that Lisa Blue will continue to grow as a brand and with customers who are passionate about our greater cause, whale and dolphin conservation.”

Following a showing at last year’s RAFW in a group swimwear show, Lisa Blue went on to show at the renowned Miami Swim Week, expanding the brands network into the US and UK. Lisa Blue will again showcase at this year’s Miami Swim Week in July, a result of the incredible success and support internationally.

It is always a treat to see Karen Nielsen’s swimwear designs on parade. And although the same collection was presented earlier in the year, the pieces at Rosemount Sydney Fashion Festival made a splendid opening to the Splash event. Examining the vintage inspired one-pieces or the high-waisted black bikinis, it is clear that every woman, no-matter their size or shape, will be looking good in a design by Karen Nielsen.

In the only parade at Rosemount Sydney Fashion Festival that was totally dedicated to swimwear, the designs of Lisa Maree were sure to make an appearance. Lisa Maree is no stranger to the runways of Australian fashion weeks, but this label is not a fashion veteran yet. The design innovation in the colours and shapes of this swimwear demonstrates that Lisa Maree is a designer on the way up.

Daughter Of The Gods was third onto the runway, but it was the first time most members of the audience had heard of them. The bronzed models were adorned with feathers and fluros. The way the models strutted confidently reflects the mantra of the label. Daughter of The Gods was named after the movie made to tell the story of the first woman who demanded the right to wear comfortable and revealing swimwear.

Hotel Bondi Swim’s collections were oh-so-very Sydney. Within each piece the sights and sounds of Sydney’s world famous beachs and nightspots were echoed loudly.

While Hotel Bondi Swim echoed the sights and sounds of Sydney, Bond-Eye shouted them. The colourful prints on the Bond-Eye fabric sung praises of the hot and floral Australian Summer and the way it is celebrated in Bondi.

Sol Bellow is not a widely known about brand, but, with the way each piece has been designed to flatter every body shape, it will soon be a well known brand to beach-goers. Sol Below spreads design inspiration slink black one-pieces to micro-sized scorching red bikinis. The result of the different colours and shapes made a stimulating catwalk show that got the crowd excited for the Summer ahead.

On a boiling day, there is no better feeling than to drape the body with silk and rest poolside. Colin Heaney’s silk kaftans catored for this desire. There were rain-forrest greens and sunburnt reds flowing down the catwalk. For every different emotion evoked by Summer, Colin Heaney catored with a design.

After seeing the models strut the newest swimwear designs, it became clear that skimpy bikinis are the way to go. For Spring/Summer 2010, modesty comes in the form of a kaftan – to be stripped off in moments of heat. The look to-die-for this season is the same as every summer: a perfectly toned and tanned body with just a whisper of colour to complement the natural physique.
