Opening his S/S ’09 collection with a structured white bikini and 18 karat gold accessories, seemed a sure-fire way to put consumers in the mindset of surf and sand, although we’re currently anticipating leaves and snow.
Models sauntered out from behind a gold-colored backdrop and sashayed onto a black lacquered runway, while attendees nodded their heads -in synch- to an island beat of music. Top model Isabeli Fontana (currently featured in the Fall ’08 Valentino & Versace ads) opened and closed the show. Among the shows guests were the beautiful actress Zoe Saldana, the Nintendo Twins Dee & Ricky, Miss USA & Miss Teen USA, and ANTP judge Mr. Nigel Barker.
