Red Carter has an irreverent approach to fashion that has established him as an innovator in the swim world. His designs range from sassy nautical classics to sexy, daring creations that leave little to the imagination. Carters swimwear can be found in specialty stores and high-end department stores including Fred Segal, Dianes, Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys New York, Neiman Marcus, Everything But Water and the Victorias Secret catalog.

With three labels and a menswear collection under his belt, the designer is set to expand into sportswear and resortwear. Carters labels include his contemporary collection, Red Carter Red Label; a young contemporary surf-oriented label called Sandy Bottoms by Red Carter; and Glam by Red Carter, a high-end collection that launched this season. In addition, Carter owns the resort-oriented Salon9 showroom in New York and recently added a West Coast branch in Los Angeles.

There seems to be nothing outlandish going on here but just really well constructed suits done in simple patterns. The white enamel details on a few of the suits adds a touch of class not seen by other designers. The color choices as well are vast, allowing a wide degree of selection, the one piece black suit we loved. Yet again we see another swim suit line playing it safe and delivering a great collection for 2009.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim/Cruise 2009: Pistol Panties

The London-based designer Deborah Fleming presented her art decoinspired collection on July 20,2008 at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim at The Raleigh hotel in Miami Beach, Florida…

Deborah titled her Pistol Panties' show "Nights in Deauville" in honor of her inspiration, the Art Deco Era in Deauville, France. The suits featured polka dots, bold colors, ruffles and oversized hats. The swimsuits were appropriately named after 1920's/1930's film stars Rita (Hayworth), Greta (Garbo), and Jean (Harlow). Glamour strode the runway and she was wearing Pistol Panties.

Zimmermann Swimwear 2009 Collection Miami ranging from aztec inspired patterns to peacock prints to sporty cross band maillots and paired with glassy antique jewelry. Zimmermann is never content to live within the confines of a fashion week. There was, for instance, a floral crop-top that, even if technically swimwear, would look smashing with a high waist skirt or wide leg trousers. There were also, among the clothing, silk harem pants, breezy printed skirts, jumpsuits, and mini-dresses that could either be beach cover-up or full-on outfit, depending on your mood.

Supima Cotton for Fashion's Rising Stars

Supima cotton, a luxurious, fashion forward brand of cotton cultivated exclusively in America. After decades of providing fabric to established designers, Supima – or specifically the growers who produce it – is seeking to provide inspiration to aspiring designers. This was the motivation behind their annual venture, Supima Competition for Emerging Designers.

The contest culminates tonight in an extravaganza at Gotham Hall in New York City, but the process began months ago. Last November, hundreds of aspiring fashion designers lined up around Thompson Hotel where a panel of judges waited to review their portfolios. The twenty-one designers who were selected that day were presented with an additional challenge: creating a complete collection from yards of luxurious Supima cotton.

Their pieces will finally be revealed January 14, 2009 at Gotham Hall in New York City where Supima is putting on a dazzling fashion show featuring cocktails, clothing and of course competition! One person out of the group will be selected as a winner and may very well become one of fashions rising stars.

Who will win this year? Stay tuned.
