As far as we know, wearing beachwear in an urban manner is neither forbidden by French prêt-à-porter laws nor does it figure in any Manuale di istruzioni di Alta moda from Milan. We therefore decided to push our fashion creed to the fullest and fascinate you with these totally avant-garde looks. All aiming to show you that both beachwear and outerwear product categories are totally street style compatible!
To prove this point, we asked our fashion consultant Alberto De Andrés, teacher at the international FD Moda School of Design as well as the Director of Hazmeguapa School of make-up in Barcelona; to turn this into a school assignment. The result is amazing in our books! As it offers a new vision to fashion wants and needs. Staging to perfection, the Australian lifestyle to women worldwide.
Together with his team of students from FD Moda, Alberto De Andrés has devised a series of editorial looks, using Seafolly’s 2014’s Spring Summer collection, FIFO accessories and his own collection. These young guns will show you how to wear your swimwear at different times of the day so that you dress-up for (fashion styling) and face-up to (beautician tips) any occasion!
Note that each look was done by a different team of students. That is why we have presented each image separately for you. We’ve added a small text to each; in order to pay tribute to these promising students who have kindly worked on this project for LookBook360 magazine.
