When you hear talk of a swimwear show at this time of year many people think of  Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim. There is another swimwear show attempting to become the premier swimwear show in New York. On June 16, 18 Emerging designers showcased  their collections at the PLITZS Swimwear passion for Fashion Designer Showcase. The event took place at the sophisticated and luxurious show venue the Warwick Hotel in New York City.

 
Designers presenting their collections were ; Eulena Leader (Elusive Leader) , Ston Crawford, Koko D.( Tamarea Cummings/Kimore Young), Aiesha Johnson (Intimate Candy) Janet Pepe (Tease Swimwear), Michelle Cole (ColeFacts), Deanna Padovani-DePaco (DP Bikinis) Adisa Christopher (Adisa C.), Lisa Opie (Vizcaya Swimwear), Victoria Spector (Victoria Swimwear), Melanie Gonzales (the Label Swimwear), Mihaela Ciupei( Moontess) Crystal Kahri (Bombshell Bikinis), Pat Brown (Aphrodisiac Swimwear), Laura Lewis (Dija Swimwear),Shonda Lewis (Rockstar Bikini), Marina Zaitsiva(Le maison de Pascale), and Chandra Maharaj (Chandra Maharaj Swimwear.
 
It has been said that the challenge of swimwear design is in replicating innovation, in creating something different consistently. There were some interesting variations to the one piece that came down the runway. Designers sought to create some interesting variations with one piece. With Bikinis you have less to work with so there is only so much you can do. What the designers did was to create some interesting contrasts with print,cut and textures. Almost all the collections incorporated use of prints, bright warm colors, and cool pastels, prints, contrasting textures.
 
Some designers worked with  strips of thin chains, Sheer and  iridescent fabrics, and lattex. The mix and match themed Victoria Swimwear Collection was contrasted by the special FX influenced latex designs from Ston Crawford. Designer Adisa Imani Christopher incorporated animal prints and graphic black and white geometric shapes into her collections. There was also creative use of hair and makeup, it definitely enhanced the collections. Many of these designs are not for the fashionably timid, they are bold and daring. The PLITZS Passion for Fashion showcase  provides a platform for up and coming designers, and that ensures that the industry always has new input. Some things could also be improved such shorter delays between shows, and a little tweaking to the runway lighting. those things aside the event went well and a lot of designers gained some more fans and a lot more visibility. It will be interesting to see what the designers send down the runway next year.
