QT Fashion Week 2014 - Swimwear Parade

QT Fashion Week kicked off on Friday night with the up and coming swimwear designers' parade. Set under the stars on the QT pool deck and with all the big names of the Gold Coast social scene in attendance, there was overflowing champagne and fresh tunes courtesy of the hipster DJs. The showcasing designers were: Smoking Water Australia, Zingiber, La Biquini and Shapes in the Sand. It was great to see their latest designs; ideas fresh from their sketch books for Spring. There is definitely some talent brewing. Here's what we got a taste of...

Shapes in the Sand
This collection featured bold geometric prints in bright statement colours. The range also included some pioneering swimwear shapes. With its white tone base and flattering shapes this is what I call new-age resort wear.

Smoking Water
Think feminine summer with this range. Classic and retro shapes were created in soft tones and floral prints. Designed to flatter any body shape and perfect to wear peering out from under your favourite summer dress.

This collection was all about bold shades and block colours. Bikinis featured custom prints with some sultry yet classic mesh details. Definitely a range for the contemporary Bond Girl.

La Biquini
An essential summer range for any girl's island getaway. Tropical floral prints were mixed and clashed with plain block colours and classic shapes.

And if you hadn't noticed, it seems the colour for the season is navy! Perfect for blondes and brunettes and a match made in heaven with summery white.
