Traveling as far as Columbia and Brazil to gather materials, designers Monica Samuels and Maria Fagre put their heads together to design a fashionable swimwear line, Monique Fagre.
Samuels and Fagre merge the styles of the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, while making sure that every piece is flattering and chic. The originality and exquisite nature of each design ensures confidence and beauty to every woman.
“We think of fashion as a canvas,” Samuels said. “We want to create unique pieces and make women feel like a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.”
Made from silk, crocheted flowers and precious stones, buyers will never see two pieces alike.
Each swimwear piece is designed to be comfortable and appealing to both contemporary, young adults and sophisticated, middle-aged women.
“People are born with talent,” Samuels said. “You just perfect it as you go along.”
You will be able to meet Monique Fagre and experience her collection on the runway during Phoenix Fashion Week, October 7 – 9, 2010 at the W Scottsdale.
