Miami Fashion Week Swim
July 19th, 2008

Miami favorite, Red Carter, took to the stage with
a collection full of vintage glamour and elegance.
Chosen as the Mercedes Benz Designer Presents for
Miami Swim 2009, Red Carter was nervous about living
up to the great expectations everyone had for the
brands fourth collection. Once the music started
and the first model appeared, you knew he had delivered...
and then some. The models strutted down a wooden
catwalk to jazz mixed with funky hip hop beats,
giving the feeling of a modern speakeasy. Retro
florals, ruffles, beading, and intricate details
were prominent. Many of the 1920's "Flapperella"
inspired designs were accessorized with large hats,
pearls, or feathers- giving the show a real theatrical
feel. When the show concluded, the audience erupted
in applause and provided Red Carter with the only
standing ovation of the week.
