Live Review: Bikini Rock Combines Models, Music and Philanthropy


Models, musicians and fashionable club-goers attended the Bikini Rock event this past Friday at Colony in Hollywood. Presented by Graffiti Beach and Swoop Magazine, the annual event was hosted by Ash Durrani and featured live music by Lou Lou Malibu and Nylon Pink. Just in time for Los Angeles Fashion Week, the obvious main attraction was the bikini fashion show. Swim suits from Calavera Swimwear, Molly B, Private Arts, Ani Bikinis, TeknoDoll, DiNeila Brazil and Kore Swim graced the runway. Proceeds from the event went towards Falling Whistles.

Nylon Pink's Jamie Scoles made an appearance during the fashion show drumming in a very Travis Barker-esque style (drumming to hip hop/club beats). You can see Scoles featured in the photos below.

Check out some of our favorite photos from the event:

The first line to hit the catwalk was Calavera Swimwear, which featured bikinis designed to withstand the toughest waves. Considered female surf swimwear, the bikinis contain velcro for secure fastening, elastics and fillers. Calavera Swimwear can be mixed and matched to create a unique look.

Molly B Swimwear hit the runway featuring fun, flirty San Diego (So Cal) designs, which were reminiscent of a classic California lifestyle. For more information, visit: http://mollybbikinis.com




Following Smack Sportswear was Tekno Doll Swimwear, designed by Jolene Danielson. We saw sexy, chic, form flattering designs fit for women of all shapes and sizes. Tekno Doll Swimwear was definitely our favorite.  For more information, visit: http://www.teknodollswim.com/



DiNeila Brazil by designer Neila Granzoti Rudden, featured sexy Sports Illustrated style bikinis, which emphasized and complemented feminine curves. Our favorite looks are highlighted below. For more information, visit: http://www.dineila.com 




Next on the runway was ANI Bikinis, by designer and founder Ami Breslin. The line prides itself on offering "hand-dyed, textured fabrics and crochet knits." These bikinis are one of a kind pieces that are not part of a mass-production, and all fabrics are hand-selected. Ani Bikinis believe in "short-sale" of fabric styles. This makes the collection more exclusive as far as one of a kind pieces, and no two pieces look the same, according to Breslin. For more information, visit http://www.anibikinis.com



Private Arts Intimates offered colorful bandeaus that married art and fashion with underwear. Private Arts combined hand drawings, photographs and graphic designs. Each piece was individually hand pressed. For more information, visit: http://www.privateartsla.com




We loved Kore Swim's nostalgic bikinis, which reminded us of 50's inspired designs consisting of high waist and classic lines. Kore Swim was designed by sisters Jessica and Nicole Tracy. Before starting the swim line, Jessica was designing custom-made women’s clothing at a small boutique and Nicole was selling ads at Google.

BEAUTIFUL RIGHTS Gives Women’s Rights Some Real Lip Service

Beautiful Rights is here to give women’s rights some real lip service. This new, cause-driven makeup initiative, founded by renowned makeup artist and product developer, Kristen Therese Leonard, was created to ensure that women’s rights continue to be given their share of voice in our country’s future.

As we enter into 2017, real concerns regarding women’s rights are upon us. Beautiful Rights was created to remind every woman to speak up, and that the responsibility lies within each of us to protect the rights we’ve fought so hard to acquire.

Beautiful Rights will promote women’s rights by donating 20% of all sales (not profits) to organizations that support our causes, such as Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, Emily’s List, Lambda Legal and Legal Momentum. The 20% contribution is set as a reminder of the fact that women in the U.S. still get paid 20% less than men for doing the same work.

Not only will Beautiful Rights fuel great initiatives, it will also provide women with top-of-line…

Summer Survival: Pick the Most Breathable Fabrics

Summer is inching closer, and while we're all psyched for the perpetually warm weather ahead after a tough winter, pretty soon it's inevitable that the heat, humidity and summer sun will leave us feeling, well, less than fresh.

Chrissy Volk, wardrobe consultant for Adahlia Volk has put together a cheat-sheet for navigating through the best, most breatheable fabrics for the season. Who ever looks at clothing "ingredient" listings on the tag - well, this season think of it as your guide to "cool."

SUMMER FABRIC "INGREDIENTS"

DENIM
COTTON + STRETCH = CUTE BUTT: Cotton jeans are the lightest for summer because they are airy and breathable, however, jeans with a small content of stretch are the most flattering. They will move with your body and it’s movements.BEST DENIM BLENDS: Chrissy suggests denim with a high cotton content, and small synthetic content. A jean with either a 98% cotton/2% lycra or 96 % cotton/4% Lycra fabric, is a good combination. J…

Book Review: "Feel Me Fall" by James Morris

Survival, suspense, fear, love, death and a major plot twist are a few key themes that describe the brand new Young Adult novel, Feel Me Fall, by James Morris. Having read two of his previous books, including Melophobiaand What Lies Within, he definitely succeeds at taking you on a crazy adventure where you can't stop reading as you'll want to find out what happens next. The first few chapters of Feel Me Fall are reminiscent of the classic book, Lord of the Flies, the TV show "LOST," and even the Tom Hanks movie, Cast Away, where a plane crash in a remote area forces survivor(s) to fend for themselves away from modern day luxuries and civilization. One of the major differences is that Feel Me Fall is centered around high school students, where their teen issues collide with primal survival instincts. 
Unlike Lord of the Flies, which was written in 1957, Feel Me Fall gives a glimpse of today's world where parents and teens dabble in video games, things go viral on …
