Day 5 Part 3 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Miami 2012


As Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim Miami 2012 was coming to a end on Day 5, we got to see a few more spectacular international designers for Jogo Beach, Perfect Tan Bikini, Tavik Swimwear, and Zingara.


The JOGO BEACH collection consists of swimsuits, beach cover-ups, made with the highest quality fabrics, and vivid colors inspired by Rio Carnival. The Jogo Beach Collection also consists of sarongs, sandals, beach bags and hats, beach pillows, bangles, candles and beauty products all bursting with vibrant hues.


A Perfect Tan Bikini was created by Richard Reisman and Claudia Cardenas in late 2006. We all know how annoying tan lines can be, and here in CA where nude beaches aren’t common, and not to mention, to most people not preferable, what is a girl to do? That’s where A Perfect Tan Bikini comes in to save the day with their new and innovating, stylish bikinis, monokinis, and even one-peices where any of the straps can easily be taken off. Whether you take the halter straps off, the side straps, or both, these bikini’s stay in place at all times due to the tape they have on the inside.


Orange County based swimwear label Tavik, created by designer Nicole Hanriot, works hard to embody

the California beach babe lifestyle with an edge that girls everywhere can enjoy.

Tavik Swimwear provides an array of styles. Styles range from moderately cut bottoms for those who prefer a little more coverage, to a more Brazilian-style for those that like to show a little more skin, tie-sides, and hot-shorts too. For the other half, a variety of styles to choose from like the crowd favorite triangle top, bandeau for the tanning babe, and bralette for style with comfort and ease. Although Tavik Swimwear is already fashion-forward, for those fashionistas out there that still like to create their own look, Tavik is easy to mix and match, styles, prints, textiles, and sizes.


Last but certainly not least, we ended the night with the final swimwear collection by Zingara, gyspy inspiration with italian design. We saw bold colors and patterns, and noticed that big sun hats, cuff bracelets, long necklaces, sheer coverups are the perfect accessories to pair up with this unique swimsuits.
