Friday July 9th Planet Fashion presented collections from various global swim and resort lines including Sustainable Swimwear capsule collections, emerging designer collections. A true stand out was the couture Swimwear designer Ema Savahl who’s collection closed the night.
Ema Savahl was born in the ancient city of Tirana, Albania.She studied pattern making, fabrics, raw materials and artistic design. SHe created the concept and technology of strategically, hand painting artwork onto garments to produce three-dimensional textures and manipulate body shapes with optical illusion. A unique identity in fashion was born. She is known for her handmade evening wear. She has been worn by celebrities: Paris Hilton, Sofia Vergara and Tyra Banks all wear her clothes. Her evening wear can regularly be seen on red carpets at the Cannes Film Festival.
Having recently designed all the swimwear for the Miss Universe pageant she went back to her earlier concepts in optical illusion. Her swimwear for the Swim Week collection was all sheer and skin toned with ornamentation strategically placed to seem as though the models were almost nude with patterns directly on their skin. It was a brilliant finish to a beautiful night.
