Wonder what it might feel like to cut designs so fine that they end up as a recommendation on the pages of a national fashion mag? Local favorite Kristina Ashley can tell you just how rewarding that can be. A Miami native, Ashley began her fashion career at the Miami International University of Art and Design. From there, she launched her line of sexy swimsuits that are perfect for South Beach babes. Lucky magazine thought so too, and gave the designer quite a compliment when they suggested her “impossibly flattering gold bikini top and adjustable printed bottom” in one of its summer issues. Kristina Ashley Swimwear is characterized by its rouche detailing, large bows and bright tropical colors.
Come this Saturday, haute fashionistas will have a chance to check out the newest Kristina Ashley Swimwear Collection and judge for themselves which fashion books should don this designer as their newest fave.
The unveiling of the 2010 Kristina Ashley Swimwear Collection will take place as the clock strikes midnight at Nikki Beach’s latest makeover venture, CLUB O1. Fourteen models will stride down a 15-foot catwalk showcasing the 18-piece multi-colored collection representing Miami and its roots of flavor and originality.
So what is this Club 01 at Nikki Beach? You may have gotten to know it as Club Nikki in its previous life, but in its new incarnation, it has been renamed. Here are some of the official deets: The sensually appealing new look is decadent with dark burgundy and black along with rich damasque prints complemented by a gold ceiling. The signature Champagne bar is adorned by a jewel-toned chandelier paired with chic Louis XIV armchairs. The extraordinary setting is an eclectic mix of 1930’s bourgeois cabaret theatre meets modern interior design, an ode to the Gilded Age.
It’s going to be another hot night on Miami Beach!
