Bright colours, patterns prevail at Colombiamoda fashion shows

Bold colours and patterned prints took over the catwalks of Colombiamoda 2015 in Medellin this week, where designers and brands showed off a plethora of creations.

The Colombian city, a centre for textiles and apparel, draws buyers nationally and from abroad for the three-day fashion event, made up of catwalk shows and trade exhibitions.

The feshion event includes a Technical Textiles Forum - Colombiamoda

Swimwear brand Luli Fama was among the first to kick off the runway shows on Tuesday, presenting bikinis and sarongs in bold colours and printed patterns.

"There is a lot of ethnic inspiration from the Middle East, from the Navajo Indians, all mixed with a burst of colour from the Caribbean," designer Augusto Hanimian said.

"It's a mix of everything."

Student designers also presented their creations with collections for both men and women, showcasing structured tops and dresses, also in a variety of colours.

Other collections shown include lingerie brand Leonisa and swimwear's Paradizia.

Colombiamoda2015 ends on Thursday.
