Flamingo Sands, forgoing the traditional runway event, for a glamorous yet rowdy approach to Melbourne Spring Fashion Week.
A party...held at the Adelphi Deck 10 Melbourne. Happy faced models with glowing skin, spent the evening downing cocktails and nibbling large pink puffs of fairy floss. Of course donned in this summers bright, fun floral prints. Guests spent the night admiring the view from the penthouse (inside and out!) as they welcomed this seasons glamorous story from Flamingo Sands.
A tiny pocket of serenity that juts out into the Pacific Ocean, an idyllic escape from the buzzing metropolis that is Bondi, a place to watch the sunset, a place to dive into the deep green, a place where locals are happy and chirping, a place where real community is present.
The Boat Ramp... everlasting inspiration for Fern Levack and Damion Fuller creators and designers of Hotel Bondi Swim.

How sweet are these little numbers from Pistol Panties....
Pistol Panties made its splash into the swimwear ocean in 2009 thanks to British/Columbian designer Deborah Fleming.
An irresistible combination of unique designs, vintage fabrics and Bond girl femininity with a little bit of quirk....a product of years of cosmopolitan living. ( Fleming has resided in London, NYC, LA, Miami, Geneva...how could you not be inspired?) After completing a Fashion degree in London, Fleming worked in costume design. Dusty retro glamour film costumes the beginning of her inspiration.
Pistol Panties has the most fun little site...have a peek here.

The conservative me says no. But the other me has this "inner tiger" shall we say, that has a bit of a thing for the animal kingdom.
Gold trimmings, bronzy brown or talcum alabaster skin & a tousled mane are a must!

As the days heat up I find myself circling the local keenie stores searching...hoping...for newer, more beautiful things to arrive.
To my excitement appears the Summer Swim collection from Zimmerman.
A miriad of deep reds, blues and whites. Patriotism a running theme, with a burst of effervescent floral here and there. All tied together by sheer poolside glamour.
Ever so Zimmermann.
