Sitting in front of me was an enthusiastic, genuine and energetic couture designer proudly showing me her Paraiso (meaning paradise in Spanish and Portuguese) Collection. Stephanie Burkhalter, impressed and inspired by the lively Caribbean lifestyle which centers on music and dance on her recent trip to Panama, created out of passion and Italian made craftsmanship with her magic hands a full collection of clothes and accessories combining original prints and delightful and adventurous hues – turquoise, azure, fuchsia, reddish orange alongside green, tangerine, black, yellow with intricate details and featuring exquisite lace, ribbon and feather embellishments, which perfectly reflected the exhilarating carnival vibes. The elegant yet flirty clothing line consists of sexy silky party dresses and jumpsuits/rompers with sensual silhouettes and soft luxurious textures which accentuate the feminine allure. The flowy ruffles details, fish tails and the asymmetrical hemlines would gracefully enhance the movement of the wearer dancing Panamanian salsa. Pleased but not completely satisfied yet, Stephanie Burkhalter challenged herself to expand the Paraiso Collection to include a comprehensive and cohesive range of accessories from an antique Couture Bag, earrings, necklaces and clutch purses to shoes, which plays spontaneously with seemingly mismatched materials yet turns out effortlessly chic and more than stunning with which she further dramatized her Burkhalter party look for women who seek to make a memorable fashion statement.
Look how Stephanie and I modeled some key pieces:

  1. The answer is “travel”. Her current collection “Paraiso” introduced her to a world of vibrant spirits and color that awoken all of her senses. It contrasted from the somber and cool nature of her previous collections.
