What's hot from Miami Fashion Week, lead designer Daniela Corte weighs in and her collection

With summer heat soaking sun-kissed bodies, our attention was turned to South Beach as statuesque models paraded designer swimwear during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim 2011. The event which took place in Miami on July 15-19 included many of the top names in designer swimwear including Trina Turk, Beach Bunny Swimwear, Mara Hoffman, True Religion Swimwear, Tyler Rose, and Nicolita to name a few.

One of the weeks highlights was Beach Bunny. Label designer Angela Chittenden showed a cohesive collection of strong feminine pieces with a sexy lingerie feel including many cut outs, bandages, and lace. Many of the models walked the runway as if they were in a Victoria Secret fashion show with lace eye masks and thigh high stockings; it comes as no surprise that the line was designed in collaboration with the Kardashian sisters, Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe. “I was just in awe of everything on the runway,” said Khloe in a statement released by the brand.“Now we all need to work out a little bit harder to flaunt it!”

Here in Boston, one of the area’s most fashionable designers took a trip to check out the beat of Miami and network for the launch of her very own swimwear collection. Daniela Corte is one of Boston’s lead up and coming designers; her ready to wear collection is made up of statement making pieces suitable for upscale events yet versatile for everyday, multi-seasonal wear. She designs with a vision of a woman, taking characteristics she most admires and are true to her which results in a collection representative of her heart and soul. With the success of her apparel, Daniela is taking a leap into swimwear with her signature line officially launching in time for Resort 2011. Her line will include smoking hot bikinis including some hand sewn “couture” swimwear which will feature metal hardware accents for a strong meets feminine feel.

As a fashion industry insider, it was interesting to hear Daniela Corte’s take on what she experianced during Miami Fashion Week; she shed light on Mara Hoffman's collection and favored its innovative style. “I love her new take on tribal prints. The accessories were the perfect element to complete the amazing shapes she showed,” Daniela stated after returning to Boston. Daniela Corta is not alone in her admiration of Mara’s collection; seen as a visionary, Mara sought inspiration from jungles, crystal caves, oceans, and tribal women. Her line was color soaked, raw, and sensual. With an ever growing knowledge and presence of Daniela Corte, it makes sense as to why she spoke so highly of one of the most innovative shows of the week. Corte's own design asthetic mirrors innovation in each garment she creates, constantly challenging the image of the demure woman while giving her fire, edge, and femininity at the same time.
