Vanessa Simmons has been silently gearing up for her fashion endeavors for quite some time now, and the day finally arrived.
Last night, one half of the Simmons sisters power pair had her moment in the spotlight, as she debuted her Rose by Vanessa Jean lingerie line at the 2013 Miami Mercedes Benz Swim Fashion Week.
Vanessa opted out of a traditional runway show in favor of an artistic installation featuring models in her swim 2013 designs standing statuesque on platforms.
The event was held in the penthouse of the Raleigh Hotel and saw attendees that ranged from Vanessa’s sister Angela, to radio personality Felisha Monet.
Vanessa looked stunning for her big show in an outfit fit for a swim show. She paired a criss-cross bandeau top and a Virgos Lounge Mollie Wrap skirt and finished off the look with a pair of Olcay Gulsen Ankle Strap Pumps.
The show was in correlation with Vanessa's uncle Russell Simmons' Diamond Empowerment Fund.
According to Vanessa, the Rose by Vanessa Jean mission is to empower and celebrate all women and the partnership with Diamond Empowerment Fund will create a platform for that message to be heard globally.
