Feature: Paradizia Fall/Winter 2013 from Medellin, Colombia

The noted Colombian swimwear design line, Paradizia Swimwear, which launched in 2008, took the audience on a magical ride during their Fall/Winter 2013 runway presentation as part of ColombiaModa 2013. The runway was filled with gorgeous hues, fabulous cutwork and Eastern style influences drawing inspiration from Arabian Nights and their recent research trip to India. Models sauntered down the catwalk showcasing their latest swimwear as well as fab accessories, from stunning travel bags, to their groovy earrings, all presented to the beats of fabulous Bollywood soundtrack — all songs, which I instantly recognized and sang along too. Paradizia not only took their audience on a fantatstical ride, but also gave the style watchers style cues for the beach. Paradizia’s mantra is to design for the spirit, not for the age.
