Day 5 Part 1 at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Miami 2012


The final day of MBFW in Miami was a bittersweet day. I was sad that fashion week was coming to an end, but at the same time I was excited to see all the last collections being showcased and feeling so accomplished and happy that the entire event was a great success.
Beginning the fashion show at the Penthouse this night was  diNelia Brazil.

Blending sensuality with elegance, Neila’s collections offer women pieces they can wear everyday to feel naturally comfortable, sexy and beautiful. She personally tries each prototype, sending only the styles that flatter the female form into production.

Each piece is meticulously crafted by hand. Designer Neila personally chooses everything from the raw and cut gems, to the textiles and threads. Her collection of semi-precious jewelry, swimwear and lingerie  all blend the styles and trends of Brazil and Italy to create an eclectic collection that is both seductive and vibrant.

In the next hour we saw 4 designers on the runway back-to-back including A.Z Arujo, Aguaclara, Aquarella, and Have Faith Swimwear at the Cabaña Grande.

Actress Adrienne Bailon also modeled the first piece from A.Z Arujo.


The Aguaclara Collections created by Liliana are exhibited at important trade shows worldwide. Her unique, one of a kind pieces are designed with highly elaborate embroidery, exclusively developed prints and hand-made natural accessories specially crafted for the garments. The end result is the brand’s outstanding feel, unique and exotic feminine style.

Aquarella Swimwear

The collection includes bold original patterns and graphics, a large range of colors, daring cuts, and feminine silhouettes. With innovative style and sophistication, the collection combines couture quality and style with superb comfort and fit.

Have Faith Swimwear

Surrounding herself in fashion, Jennifer became a self-taught designer and accomplished seamstress.

“I am greatly influenced by the world of fitness, fashion and the glamorous life and style of poolside elegance,” explains Jennifer. “I believe in complementing a woman’s beauty by making them feel confident and sexy.”

Have Faith Swimwear was launched to fill that void and offer the most exquisite fabrics, styles, cuts and embellishments.
