Istituto Marangoni Miami made a splash for the third edition at Paraiso 2023, on June 9th, 2023, during Miami Swim Week– where students helped raise awareness for sustainability through a Swimwear Upcycle Challenge Fashion Show.
Six talented students created designs by upcycling donated dead stock fabrics and were paired with established swimwear brands who provided them mentorship throughout the whole process.
The stunning designs by competition winner Fabiana Polito were mentored by Peixoto. Laure Sawaya was mentored by Riot Swim, Chenqi Jiang by PQ Swim and alumni Clark Rosen was showcasing his brand Sammy.
Camila Balleste was mentored by VDM The Label, Anabel Montiel was mentored by Vitamin A and Barbara Khouri was mentored by Tropic of C. Check it out!
