With bright hues, candy accessories, and big big smiles, the Tumbler and Tipsy by Michael Kuluva show at KIA Style360 proved to be all about fun.
The young designer sent the models down the runway in neon tulle skirts, decked out in bold turquoise eye liner, and a playful attitude. One of the looks that caught everyone’s attention was the black tulle and pop rocks wrapper dress. Its charismatic model was Real Housewife of New York, Jill Zarin. The crowd absolutely adored her and supported her with claps as she graced the runway. The show definitely brought back a fun sentiment from when garments were less structured and our favorite New York designers were just beginning. It definitely resembled the positivity and colorful essence of Betsey Johnson, with a sweet pop of candy.
Anchored by the creative mind and brilliant talents of professional figure skater turned fashion designer, Michael Kuluva, Tumbler and Tipsy is not only reworking, redefining and revamping the world of fashion but is taking it over with his sexy yet stylish brand.
