A Worthy Swim Week

Swim Week has ended as quickly as it began leaving us with many memories of the shows that we attended. While it is almost impossible to escape the uniformity of trends and colors, we were happy to see that every designer that we saw found a clever way to stay on trend and unique to their own aesthetic. So here are a few of our observations paired with a few pictures of our favorite looks from our favorite shows.

1. Sinesia Karol

Location: The Setai Hotel

Day: Friday July 17th 8 p.m.

Possibly our favorite show. Sinesia brought us the best of summer with her gorgeous couture swim suits and resort wear. She embraced the warm purple and golds of the upcoming season but she also introduced light warm blues pairing beautiful textures with luxurious fabrics. We sat among her friends and family as even they whispered:

“I think that this is her best collection yet.”

Being that the designer is a prominent fixture in our current issue, we can’t help but admit that we love everything that the designer provides in all of her collections. True to her aesthetic, it was not about shocking her audience, which consisted of the who’s who, with loud colors and patterns. The poetry is always in the collection’s design. Her looks were effortless, elegant, enchanting and yet intricate. Her closing piece left us all in an editorial summer daze.  Like we could imagine having that suit on the digital pages of Worthy right now.

 

2. Keva J

Location: The Ritz-Carlton Hotel South Beach

Day: Saturday July 18th 2-4 p.m.

 

The upcoming season seems to be a sharp cry from last season, which opted for dark colors, textured swim suits with long sleeves. For the upcoming season we can look forward to vibrant colors we are happy that purple and gold stayed and that black will never depart. Keva J gave us all the colors of the upcoming season. Her unique signature was that her suits were layered and cut to perfection with perfectly placed muted gray and white swim pieces. We lost count of the gasps of excitement her audience accounted for. Did we mention that Eva Marcelle was in attendance and loved the pieces?

 

3. Liliana Montoya

Location: Funksion Tent

Day: Thursday: 6 p.m.

What we love about this designer is her ability to make every collection unique and signature to a specific season. What we saw last year was very different from what we saw this year. Down to the cut of her suits and her color choices. Her looks were the perfect mermaid oasis complete with Dash of Flash tattoos. Vibrant, intrinsic and dreamy are the words we would use to describe her collection.

 

4. Lila Nikole

Location: 1 Hotel South Beach

Day: Sunday  6 p.m.

Calling in one of our favorite worthy women of 2014, Lila Nikole offered up a show that hypnotically trendy and signature.  We loved the conscious choice to showcase one piece swim suits paired with playful, fashion forward sneakers from Kruzin footware.

5. Anita Rincon

Location:  Riviera Hotel South Beach

Day: Sunday 2-4 p.m.

This was the collection for the curvy and confident woman. Purples, dark greens and golds glistened in the summer haze by the pool at the Riviera Hotel in South Beach. The designer paired her looks with one of a kind accessories from Erica Mena’s accessory collection, HER. We loved every detail.

THE PROM DRESS THAT BROKE THE INTERNET

[image_gallery images=”3589:http://worthy-magazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/pinterest-social-promotion-3437-1433863039-11.jpg,3587:http://worthy-magazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/promenhanced-10026-1433799693-1.jpg,” ][/image_gallery]

Kyemah McEntyre, a senior at Cecily Tyson School of Performing Arts, in East Orange, New Jersey has been making waves with her handmade prom dress. In a sea of Met Gala inspired prom dresses, McEntyre broke the internet with her sense of originality and boldness. One of her Twitter captions that has been making headlines eloquently read:

“This is for always being labeled as, “ugly” or “angry”. Thank God, stereotypes are just opinions. – Kyemah McEntyre✊”
McEntyre is going to be attending Parsons School of Design in the fall. We have no problem admitting that we can’t wait to see what she shows us next. She shared on her Instagram that she draws inspiration from all cultures.
“I’m Kyemah McEntyre, I am 18 years old and I am undoubtedly of African Descent. As an artist I have a completely different point of view compared to most individuals. I am extremely analytical and observant. Throughout the world, we have people who do not notice each others essence and humanity. We Stunt our collective spiritual growth by allowing assumptions and stereotypes to cloud our mind and thus our physical reality. We let these negative ideas get the best of us, and in turn a world of isolation is manifested by our lack of sensitivity and desire to sympathize with each other. This results in a world in which people live within the confines of their own space, isolated from each other and separated from the rest of the world.Sometimes we get trapped in our own prejudice ways. We don’t notice how the idea of a particular type of person changes the way we live our lives. The most creative people are the ones who step out of their comfort zone and take advantage of the world around them. My abilities as an artist allows me to experience the benefits that versatility fosters. Being exposed to all kinds of people and cultures is the muse for my artwork. I am an aspiring artist who is very passionate about the connection between art and the world. I believe that in order for society to gain a wider horizon, we have to be willing to acknowledge other people from differences, beliefs, morals, and values. I would like to take this moment to say that you have to understand who you are because if you leave that space open, you leave your identity in the hands of society. Don’t let anyone define you. Beautiful things happen when you take pride in yourself. #blackgirlsrock #kyebreaktheinternet”

 

This one-of-a-kind look is most certainly #worthyapproved.
