Trina Turk Kicks Off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami

Models clad in colorful Trina Turk beachwear hit the runway in Miami yesterday for the designer's 2011 fashion show, marking the start of Fashion Week Swim in Miami. This was the first time showing at Miami's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim for the LA-based Turk, who was named "Mercedes-Benz Presents" designer for the event. Presenting to a full house at the Raleigh, Trina Turk brought her unique brand of West Coast glamour to South Beach in a lineup that was largely inspired by Hollywood's jaunts to Acapulco in the '60s and '70s (think bright headscarves and iridescent tunics). Oversize jewelry (better to stand up to the designer's bold prints) and gold hardware set off the colorful kaftans, tropical printed bikinis, netted cover-ups, cute printed beach bags, and some gigantic straw sun hats. See the complete runway show in the gallery below.
