"For me the Ipanema brand is a perfect fit for my look this season because it has the same qualities that are very light and comfortable in terms of product quality and trendy designs." says Dave Ocampo.

"My collection for this season is all about summer: clothes that transcend from day to evening, it's structured yet it's soft. I went crazy with colors this season from pastels to bright colors, lots of interesting silhouettes ad rich fabrics like silk dupione and silk chiffon and jerseys," says Lyle Ibanez.

"I drew inspiration from the design and the colors of the Ipanema Colectio. That's why I used both slk and spandex, and I showed just the right amount of skin to emphasize femininity," says Raoul Ramirez
