Red Carter Swim 2010MIAMI, Jul 18, 2009 / — Last season’s ‘Mercedes-Benz Presents’ designer, Red Carter’s addictions to surprising and delighting the audience are intact and full force this season as he sent a little bit of animal, a little bit of Rock & roll on the runway, plus a lot of Space-age glamour.

Launched in 2004, the Red Carter swimwear line is inspired by Miami’s city’s burgeoning creative spirit and its ever-present energy and bold, Art Deco style.

Incorporating fit, form and function with subtle details and bold prints, the label’s advance technical constructions makes it a cut above the rest in high street swimwear. The brand has grown substantially in its short lifetime, with 2008 its biggest year to date.

In February 2008, Red was bestowed the ultimate honor for a swimsuit designer, having three styles selected to be featured in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue where Supermodel Heidi Klum can be seen in a Red Carter suit across a two page spread in the issue.
