And just like that our first solo show at Miami Swim Week is over! Our collection MIND BALI SOUL was a stand out on the catwalk. Inspired by everything Balinese, the luscious fabrics, unique models, and fresh flowers made our vision come to life. For the next half hour the audience was transported out of Miami and onto the islands of Indonesia. Now we know all our SL babes couldn’t be in Miami, so we want to take you back in time to re-experience this magical moment with us.
We are still obsessing over the opening moment of the show– a vision of sunset and silhouette, the models moved like naturals dancing to traditional Balinese music.
As soon as the music ended it was time for the runway show to begin. One of our favorite moments from the night was the opening look, a vision of our new strappy V-Knot bottoms and an intricately carved skull (courtesy of Child of Wild) adorned with traditional flowers. In the Balinese culture, the skull symbolizes gratitude and abundance. Each look on the runway was inspired from various traditions of Bali and designed to honor the mystical and humble ways of the Balinese culture . As the models started to walk down the runway, we were reminded to graciously embrace the spiritual journey that Bali and this collection represents.
Throughout the show our SL babe models strutted down the catwalk showing off the silky smooth fabrics, organic prints, rich colors, and intricate designs. Even their hair was filled with flowers that are considered special offerings among the people. Each look was thoughtfully created, and brought in the elements and nature of Bali.
As we watched the last of the 30 beautiful looks come down the runway, the Jack U and Justin Bieber’s “Take U There” song started to play, and the models reappeared dancing and having fun as they said their goodbye’s as the show came to a close. Our girls killed it, and we felt honored to represent such a magical place that holds so much culture and inspiration in our 2016 collection.
We want to give a huge thanks to Concept Flowers Miami for the beautiful flowers, to Child of Wild for the gorgeous jewels and to our stunning models that brought their own shine to our runway. Not to mention our VIP gifting sponsor’s Heather Brown Art, Aloha Powder, Bikini Cleanse, Frank Body, Hello Hair, Looq 2 Selfie Stick, Maui Babe, Nectar Eyewear, Pandeia and Voluspa. And of course the Balinese culture for inspiring our collection. Without them our show would not have been complete.
