FashionTV’s YouTube channel has some great recordings of some fab shows from the most recent season of catwalk collections the world over.
Most recently, they’ve compiled a playlist for “Bikini Models – Summer 2012 Brazil Fashion Week”.
I’m going to highlight one show and one designer in particular.
IN RIO DE JANEIRO :
Swimwear designer, Lenny Niemeyer (www.lennyswimwear.com), showcases her new swimwear collection for 2012, which also represents her 20th anniversary.
Model Izabel Goulart is featured in this particular Rio show for Summer 2012.
You might have to click the link to watch in YouTube, because the video playback is restricted…
… the overall fashion show setting is a fab match with the designs.
For 2012 Lenny Niemeyer has selected to work with Art Deco printwork, geometric prints and asymmetric shapes for her high-fashion swimwear…
Extracted from Lenny Niemeyer’s website:
“Lenny first arrived on the scene in Rio in 1980. With her tanned skin and golden blond hair, Lenny was ready to take on this new city. As a true Brazilian beach lover, Lenny spent much of her time near the water. She saw a gap in the market as she searched for a sophisticated swimsuit and decided to make one for herself, thus embarking on a new career. Lenny, previously a gifted landscape architect, became a swimwear designer and worked with a variety of swimwear brands for more than 10 years. In 1993, she decided to create her own line, and the “Lenny” brand was born.”
There is also another runway video, for Lenny’s 2011 collection, on the website (www.lennyswimwear.com) … also another *gorgeous* show, but I don’t know how long that video will stay on-line.
This video below, is from FashionTV’s channel on YouTube, which I’m sure will stay viewable to the public for longer…
