This Swim Week, Miami’s Native Son- Red Carter returned to the catwalk to present his latest Resort 2013 collection. From the moment the first model sauntered down the runway carrying a disco-ball and rocking hair that was very much an ode to the iconic Vidal Sassoon bob, attendees were guaranteed to be in for a treat. The collection combined disco influences with a distinct nod to the golden era of the infamous Studio 54 in NYC; combining glitz, glamour and a combination of animal prints and Aztec influences.
The final pieces were accompanied by models that were wearing feathers, which looked like a nod to Moulin Rouge or the beautiful girls who dress in pageantry for Caribbean Carnival festivals. Needless to say, Red Carter is making an indelible mark in the fashion industry with his modern touches and heavy couture influences and I am certain his influence and reach will extend even further with his recent relocation to NYC.
