Rosa Cha Spring 2009 Runway

Even with the rain coming down outside on day two of Fashion Week, the Rosa Cha Spring 2009 Runway Show set the tone of what was to come with Caribbean steel drums. As the lights dimmed we were transported from rainy NYC to the shores of Rio with Brazilian melodies wafting through the tents.

The show began with an Optical White Bikini with interlaced straps and we were presented with additional hues of Leaden Brown, Green, and Reds that were perfect reflections of gemstones.


Rosa Cha’s swimwear collection showed how diverse one and two piece looks could be with monochromatic and duotoned looks (love the use of chevron throughout the show). In addition, we enjoyed various styles including one shoulder, v-neck, cutaways, corselets and more. This collection began on the shores and transitioned to afternoon cabana parties with sheer kaftans, jumpers and dresses and finally for an upscale conclusion, Rosa Cha included bikinis that were encrusted with Swarovski Crystals which showed how it could be interpreted as evening wear or at the very least, luxurious loungewear. Finally, the perfect compliment to this show was the use of accessories. From cuffs, hoop earrings and rings that were encrusted with various gemstones.
