Guest list, lingerie, models and catwalks…
Here it is that time of the year when we are presented with the new lingerie Spring-Summer 2013-2014 Collection.
Something that I loved about the Cosmopolitan Lingerie Fashion show 2012 was that, contrarily to fashion week, their show is much more theatrical. It isn’t simply models wearing clothes. There’s attitude, drama and variety of emotions expressed in that catwalk, which we could also see on this year’s show.
A difference from last year’s show was the location. Lingerie Fashion Show 2012 was at the Cape Sun hotel, a very elegant location where everything just fell into place.
This year, it was at the centre court of Canal Walk and I didn’t find it very appropriate for a fashion show due to the smell of chips coming from McDonald’s which was near by.
But apart from that, it was an honour to be invited (this year was invitation only, no selling tickets) and my sister Marisa, my mum Celia and I loved being there.
I had the opportunity to meet Jimmy Nevis who sang “Heartboxing” and “Balloon” at the end of the show.
For the ones who don’t know him, Jimmy is a local singer and his songs are so lovely that I decided to introduce his music to my portuguese friends. So, Jimmy Nevis, people in Portugal are listening to you. You’re welcome!
I was also able to congratulate the fashion designer Luiz ‘Delaja, who I interviewed last year and I’ll interview again this year. He styled for Lingerie Fashion show 2012 and also for this year’s show. If you are curious about his work, keep an eye on my blog because a new post with his latest interview is coming soon!
Let’s now take a look on what happened at the show!
It all started with a quite good performance, which made me want to be able to also dance like that.
Take a look at it here:
This was followed by the Lingerie Collections, here are my favourites:
