These two lovelies are the Flamingos of Paolita! Joseph Bachman, co owner of Polita beachwear introduced them to me after their show in Baku, during London Fashion Week. Joseph told me that the flamingos have been around the world with the Paolita team and have been introduced to many people, but nobody had been able to come up with suitable names for them. I immediately named one Rosie May. After a few seconds of thought, I named the other Melody Ray. In fact, these are the names I’ll give me daughters if I ever have kids. Or maybe to my sons… if both of them grow up to become drag queens…
I love this photograph Shuja Dean took at the Paolita beachwear fashion show at Baku London. Inspired by folk art and traditional costumes from around the globe, the swimsuits, bikinis and beach dresses were a real visual treat. Colourful and feminine jewellery by Pink Powder perfectly complimented the sensational collection. Click on the thumbnails below or Click Here for all photos by Shuja Dean.
