Skimpy bikinis and buff bodies graced the runway at the Bikini Rock Fashion Show held at the Music Box last week. Presented by Swoop Magazine and Graffiti Beach, the event integrated fashion, charity, art and rock n’ roll with musical performances by Kevin Sousa, Gorgeous Got a Gun and Iglu & Hartly. A portion of the proceeds will go towards Jeanne’s Journey and Fertile Action. Upstairs, vendors were on hand at the venue’s rooftop offering accessories, clothing, skateboards, eco-friendly swimsuits, jewelry and more. For those with enough energy to party the night away, the fashion show event turned into the official Electric Daisy Carnival after party featuring Chuckie and AfroJack, where Lil Jon made an appearance.
On the runway, our favorite lines included Lolli Beach Candy, B.Swim, White Laundry, Sambaii, Teeki, Bettinis, Islay and clothing from Jedidiah. From solid dark prints to white bikinis and stripes to yellow bikinis, the runway was filled with colors that pop perfect for summer.
When it comes to “Going Green,” Teeki swim wear has stepped up to the plate with “bikinis made with real water bottles.” Designer Lindsay Hemric noted that her bikinis are eco-friendly and don’t sag when wet. Hemric said it took trial and error to discover that recycled water bottles worked perfectly. She tried bamboo but the fabric was too flexible. Teeki bikinis are available at www.teekilove.com where bottoms and tops both sell for $50 each.
Also on the runway, Sambaii offered skimpy Brazilian cuts, which oozed sex appeal down the catwalk. Sambaii swimwear can be purchased at www.sambaii.com .
