Interview with Aqua Di Lara | MBFW Swim 2014

The following excerpt is from my interview editorial with Aqua di Lara Public Relations Manager, Caroline Couture. Head to Sj Chronicle for the full editorial including interview questions and photo gallery by photographer Semant Jain from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami!

Aqua di Lara Interview MBFW Swim

The models dazzled in MIA black cuffed stilettos and radiant jewel tones of amber, ruby, and aquamarine influenced by exotic locations and Reyhan’s personal travels. Colorful elements were paired with multiple Tarzan-goddess braids and subtle yet sultry makeup by Smashbox Cosmetics.

In 2012, Aqua Di Lara was separated into a two distinct labels: the soft, feminine White Label and the edgier Black Label. Before the show, Semant Jain interviewed the line’s Public Relations Manager. “We want two styles because we have an eclectic customer,” she explained, “There are two styles you can wear anytime.” Both labels were presented, complementing each other yet offering their own distinct looks as they transitioned from White Label to Black Label.

The White Label transported its audience to tropical islands with lush, textured prints in a collage of turquoise, amethyst, and mandarin. Elegant designs and bold solids were featured in both bikinis and one pieces, paired with resort-style dresses and billowy silk cover-ups for a sun-soaked day in the sand.

Known for her ability to create flattering lines and silhouettes, Reyhan’s Black Label offered risky cutouts, barely-there bottoms, and form-fitting one pieces leaving just enough to the imagination. Blocks of hot pink and neon orange popped against a black canvas.

  1. I love getting to interview people. I’ve never had the opportunity to do an in-person interview, though. I’ve done some phone interviews in the past – those are fun.

    • Well I wrote the questions and the editorial. The editor/photographer was the one who actually interviewed her in Miami. But still! Was pretty awesome 🙂
