High on fashion, fun, glamour and glitz, that’s how I would like to sum up the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The mercury levels were rising like never before at the historic Raleigh Hotel and no points for guessing why. Its definitely getting hot in there when fifteen world renowned swimwear designers come under one roof for one of the hottest events. These include big wigs like Red Carter, Poko Pano, Hotel Bondi Swimwear, Syla by Sylvie Cachay, Ed Hardy Swimwear, TIBI, Pistol Panties and Custo Barcelona. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week has tipped Miami’s favourite Red Carter as this year’s Mercedes-Benz Presents Designer for Swim 2009.
Though difficult but on managing to get your eyes off the runway the place to see and be seen at the Raleigh Hotel venue is the invite-only Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge, where celebrities, and top editors relax between shows. And meanwhile the festivities continued poolside where guests are invited to enjoy a beauty retreat in the private cabanas along the iconic Raleigh pool. Wouldn’t you kill to be a part of this extravaganza?
