Carena West swimwear – backstage and runway
Carena West showed her beautiful 2016/17 swimwear collection in a Contemporary Salon show at New Zealand Fashion Week 2016.
There was a style for every body, from eensy weensy bikinis to high neck lines, and detailing that included big bows. The colour palette showcased on-trend nudes and merlots, and a variety of patterns and prints.
Social media went crazy for Carena West’s burkini – on the day that French police were criticised for chastising a Muslim woman for covering up on a beach in France – with a full body swimsuit covered in white flowers.
As always, Carena used a variety of women as well as professional models in her shows, including Auckland blogger Hannah Rogers.
