Looking for some excitement? Never fear, for Brazilian designer Rogerio Martins is on the horizon. Known for his unique wearable art, Rogerio brings the feminine mystique and culture of Brazil to fashion.
Martins has been showcased in several prestigious venues and was recently chosen as an Outstanding Emerging Designer of the year finalist at the Miami Beach International Fashion Week. After a peek at some of his work, I would say this honor is well deserved.
Another brilliant talent to hit the stage will be Essence Flowers. A native of Florida, Essence has made a name for herself with a breathtaking design aesthetic. From professional cheerleading uniforms to magnificent art pieces which serve as inspiration for entire communities, Essence Flowers is here to bring great things to the runways of Tampa, and throughout the world.
With so many wonderful garments to be seen, one cannot forget intimates. Rhonda Shear, former host of USA: Up All Night, creates beautiful sleep and shapewear using only the finest materials. Challenging women to embrace their curves, Rhonda Shear Intimates are the perfect accessory to any style.

If ever there was a perfect example of art in fashion, it would be from Spathose. “Wearable Sculpture” is the fantastic creation of Scott Durfee and George Medeiros. Using sustainable, organic materials to create edgy, artistic pieces, the Spathose collection will likely transform the runways of Tampa Bay into a wonderful live museum.

Art and fashion have always been interchangeable. In fact, couture fashion is the very definition of art. Artist Helen Gerro has transformed her great talent from paintings into fashion. In the eighties and nineties Gerro’s clothing line could be found in such high end department stores as Nordstrom, and was even highlighted on Oprah. Gerro’s paintings can be found in prestigious homes and offices throughout France and the U.S.
Helen uses her incredible talent as a painter to bring her vision to life on fabric. One beautiful gown is presented as a creative bride’s dream with colorful designs mirroring those seen in many a coveted Gerro painting.
This month Helen Gerro will leave her Gulf Coast studio to paint the runways of Fashion Week Tampa Bay with her colorful vision. From your wall to your closet, Helen Gerro will absolutely bring a vivacious spirit into your world.
