Bold colour and exuberant prints dominated the catwalks at the 26th edition of Colombiamoda, one of South America’s most important textile and fashion events which takes place in Medellin. Amongst the most popular items at this year’s event were shapewear, footwear, swimwear and underwear, with catwalk shows from established Colombian designers and brands Carmen Belissa, Paradizia, Leonisa and Luli Fama to name a few.
Swimwear brand Paradizia presented a collection entitled ‘Gypsy Voyage’, inspired by different world destinations translated with a bohemian flair. Rich details, textures, prints and embroideries were some of the highlights from the collection. Luli Fama took inspiration from the Middle East with a burst of colour from the Caribbean and presented bold patterns in bikinis and sarongs.
