Welcome to Oakland Fashion Week, Day 3!
Welcome to my event highlights of Oakland Fashion Week 2017's Day 3: Splash- Resort Swimwear!
On the Friday Evening of May 12th, 2017, patrons of fashion gathered together at Studio Fab, in Oakland, California, for a wonderful presentation of Designer Swimwear, created by Bay Area Fashion Designers! Myself, and my dear Husband, Javier Rangel, attended this fantastic event together, and were able to visit with the fabulous designers, models, event coordinators, photographers, and guests!
This article, in my OFW2017 series, features event photos, including the entire Swimwear Collections presented! If you were not able to attend this event in person, you are truly in for an eye-candy treat! If you were one of the hundreds of attendees at the runway show, first, I thank you for supporting Bay Area Fashion events, such as Oakland Fashion Week! As a fellow designer, I know first hand of all the hard work that goes in to creating Fashion Collections, and Runway Shows! We appreciate Lovers of Fashion like yourself, for making events like this, not only possible, but better with each passing year!
Here are a few pre-show photos:
Now, check out the amazing swimsuits and beachwear presented by this years runway line-up:
A Colored Me
First to present their 2017 Swimwear Collection, was Layla C, Designer for A Colored Me. Layla made her runway debut last year, during OFW2016, with a beautiful swimwear collection, and this year was no different! Click here to view OFW2016's "Splash- Resort Swimwear". Now, check out the exquisite textiles and colors in this years sizzling collection!
Second to walk the runway, were swimwear designs by Valerie Cotton! I was particularly excited about viewing this collection, because I had a taste of Valerie Cotton's designs on OFW2017 Opening Night, where she presented a dazzling and luxurious collection. I loved the one-piece suits featured in Valerie Cotton's Swimwear Line, they were scorching HOT!
Mr. Mastahn Fanaka is not new to the swimwear game, he is a master! Designing swimwear for years, Mastahn pulled out all the intricate design details for this show! Here is a few pictures of myself, and Javier, with Mastahn Fanaka. He not only is an extremely talented designer, but he is also a very kind and friendly man!
Check out these stunners he created:
James Head, a Fashion Icon in our East Bay Fashion Designer Community, is known for creating high -end, unique clothing, designed with an avant garde flair. During this evenings runway event, I saw for the first time his Resort/Swimwear Collection. Styled with headdresses, beach balls, hats, and Hawaiian Leis, this collection told a story of pure seashore fantasy!
I hope that you enjoyed viewing the Resort/Swimwear Collections presented at Day 3 of Oakland Fashion Week 2017!
