On Friday, July 20, 2012, designer Lila Nikole Rivera of Lila Nikole Collection presented her “Electrika” summer 2013 collection with an off-site runway experience at the newly opened Bamboo Miami. The Ultra Music Festival-inspired collection of bikinis, monokinis and one-piece swimsuits incorporates wild prints and graphics, sequence glitter and fringe detailing in bright neon colors like fluorescent yellow, hot pink, lime green and electric blue.
Miami Dolphin Cheerleaders modeled the looks on a one-of-a-kind hydraulic stage with digitally mapped graphics that played simultaneously on the elevated, custom LED screens to give off a 3-D illusion. Alongside the innovative video technologies, Bonnie Beats and DJ Rob Dinero provided the soundtrack to the show, recreating the effect of being at the actual festival. Sponsors for the evening included the Paul Mitchell High Tech studio, which provided hair and makeup for the runway looks.
