We Caught Up With Courtney Allegra At LAFW
Courtney Allegra showed the perfect swimwear collection at LAFW last night. The bikinis had us dreaming dreams of metallic filled Spring Break pool side ensembles, perfectly accessorized with gold pendant necklaces, sky-high heels, and Barbie-worthy bouncy curls. We caught up with Courtney after the show to find out about her inspiration for the collection, pre-show jitters, and what’s next for the budding bikini designer! See it all, below.
What inspired your collection?
This collection was inspired by the galaxy, so I had lots of metallics, foil colored fabrics, and starry, night sky type stuff.
What made you want to become a swimwear designer?
I started out doing leatherwear, but I couldn’t wear it most of the time because I live in California (it’s usually hot!). So I just decided I should do something I could actually wear, like bikinis!
Were you nervous for the show tonight?
No, but before I went out on the runway, one of my friends was like “Don’t fall!” That worried me a bit.
What’s next for you?
I’m doing Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Miami! All the fabrics are my own designs. It’s gonna be a totally different line, really colorful and tropical.
