DALLAS, Jul 24, 2008 / FW/ — “Women who wear Poko Pano do not compromise elegance when choosing their bikinis, and for that reason we try to create unique and precious details that will make them feel just like their memories of Bossa Nova; truly special,” was how Paola described her 2009 collection.

Debuting on the Miami runway this July, it was also the brand’s first appearance on the U.S. catwalk. Poko Pano Brazilian Bikinis has been available in the U.S. since 2005. The brand’s fun, fashion forward and unique designs have caught the eye of swimwear lovers everywhere; including celebrities like Angie Harmon, Janet Jackson, Beyonce, Elle McPherson, Mischa Barton, and Bridget from “The Girls Next Door”.

Established in Sao Paulo Brazil in 1990, Poko Pano Brazilian Bikinis is a family owned company that literally started in the designer’s garage and was sold initially in a friend’s clothing store. Paola Robba’s unique individual style made the swimwear line an instant favorite among beach goers.
