Dominican-Lebanese designer, Giannina Azar, debuted her self-titled Resort Wear ’19 last Saturday night at the Planet Fashion TV Runway Show. Paying homage to her infamous couture collections, her 2019 resort collection featured her iconic touch of jeweled swimsuits, kimonos, and cover-ups.
In true Azar style, the collection was anything but conventional and pandered to anyone looking to make a bold statement while lounging poolside. Azar’s collection recognizably embodied true Miami glamour to the fullest. Each unique piece dazzled down the runway with mixes of rich embellishments working in cohesion with gold accented reds, blacks, blues, and earthy tones that highlighted Azar’s curvy models.
The brunette beauties cheekily glided down the runway with sun-kissed make-up and shiny platform wedges. Making statements as their figure-hugging suits and jeweled cover-ups glittered in the wind. The chosen models showcased body diversity as they varied in size and height.
As Azar’s previous couture collections are favorited by stars like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez, her resort wear could easily be pictured on starlets desiring to make a bold statement. With fitted swimwear and barely there bikini bottoms paired with long-lined fringed skirts, gold accent belts, and avant-garde Jacquemus-inspired straw hats, her debut collection is not for the faint of heart.
As Azar’s couture designs range in the thousands, her luxury swimwear is believed to be similarly priced.
We are interested to see how this designer will top her extravagance in her follow-up collection.
