Lisa Blue Spring/Summer 2011/2011 Collection – Swimwear – Rosemount Australian Fashion Week 2011
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.
The stand-alone show is an exciting step for committed eco-warrior and designer Burke, as she continues on her journey to raise awareness for whale and dolphin conservation through brand Lisa Blue. 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.
