Azure Launch & Fashion Show

Urban resort living plus hot resort wear designers.
Azure Launch & Fashion Show Urban resort living plus hot resort wear designers.

Ever fantasized about living right next to the beach in a fantastic condo, yet not being so far away from the hustle and bustle of Manila? This may sound too good to be true, but that dream can actually become a reality. Century Properties' latest development, Azure Urban Resort Residences, is nestled in Parañaque City in its very own resort setting complete with a man-made beach and all the luxuries of a tropical hideaway.

Naturally, an urban resort lifestyle like that requires a complementary wardrobe chock-full of sexy summer attire. So Century Properties tapped hot resort wear designers Rosanna Ocampo, Charina Sarte, and Hindy Tantoco to showcase their latest summer creations in their showroom launch held last April 16.

In a fashion show hosted by Joey Mead, models sashayed down a beachy catwalk in the designers' scorching Summer 2010 ensembles.

Rosanna Ocampo's collection—called Parc Guell—was inspired by the vibrant city of Barcelona and the Art Nouveau architecture of its native son, Antonio Gaudí.

Charina Sarte's collection, on the other hand, is comprised of resort wear staples spiced up with her signature animal prints.

Culte Femme and U Swim's Hindy Tantoco's collection, meanwhile, dishes out fierceness in her usual feminine and edgy style, this time with the great white shark making a menacing appearance on her prints.
