Synchronized Style Divas: Rio 2016 Olympics Synchronized Swimming Teams

The finals of the Rio 2016 Olympics Synchronized Swimming competition occurred this past week. Earlier, I discussed my FAVORITE swimsuits/costumes for the Duets competitions HERE and now, naturally, it is time for the Teams...

Aquatic Princesses: I love Synchronized Swimming because of A) the AMAZINGLY precise synchronization of their swimming; B) I'm a fan of these two words "Aquatic Ballet" and C) I love anything involving a pool and more importantly sparkly Couture-worthy swimsuits/costumes. So, here are my favorite Rio 2016 Olympics Synchronized Swimming Team Swimsuits, in no particular order:

 Mermaids, Bollywood, Skeletons...Yep! It's Olympics Synchronized Swimming Costumes!--Rio 2016 Olympic Games Synchronized Swimming Duets

One of my FAVORITE events to watch during the Summer Olympics--besides Gymnastics of course!--is Synchronized Swimming. Naturally, it is because of those bright, sparkly swimsuits! (Oh and yes, those AMAZINGLY synchronized routines!). Now, we have heard (and read) all about the Olympic Gymnastics leotards and how expensive they are. According to this report, they can take as many fittings as a wedding dress and the competition (really sparkly ones!) can cost up to $1200. Frankly, I would charge much more--all those Swarovski crystals, all those fittings, but that's just me! What I am here to discuss today is the Rio 2016 Olympics Synchronized Swimming Duets costumes and some of my favorites. Now, if the gymnastics leotards cost upwards of $1,000, I would assume these numbers have to cost upwards of $2,000!!! here are some of my favorites:

The FIDM Open House is a day for anyone interested in a career in Fashion Design, Styling, Apparel Manufacturing, Visual Merchandising and so much more and see what it is like to be a student at the college.

It's All About Sequined Fabric: Nick Verreos in "Sequins 101" YouTube video on "Fashion School with Nick Verreos" 

In my latest video for my YouTube Channel "Fashion School with Nick Verreos", it's all about SEQUINS, and especially sequined fabrics. I give an instructional and informational walk-through on sequined fabric, the difference between sequins and paillettes, crystals and anything in between!

Sequin School: Since I love working with beaded fabric--and I am sure I am not the only fashion designer who does--I thought I would do this video for aspiring fashion designers, fashion students and anyone who is interested in knowing the basics of Sequined Fabrics...the Sequined 101 Fashion School Dish.
