I am so sorry to have loved you and left you! I am back! And with GREAT NEWS! We have finished our summer trade shows to launch Paradisiac Swimwear into stores! Wow it was a wild journey. Trade shows nearly take it all out of small businesses….and I’m still not convinced they are entirely worth it….but it was something to talk about none-the-less.
We took part in MIAMI SWIM SHOW and CURVE EXPO NYC. I met so many amazing buyers, other designers, press people, and other unicorns who do other magical things in the underwater world.
Here are some photos documenting the journey.
Miami Here WE come! … egh really??
Isn’t it supposed to be nice in Miami….Not in the summertime!
Let the Sun Dance Begin!
Meet our beautiful Model for both shows, Jasmine. @jazicouture on Instagram. Love her! She rocks Paradisiac HARD!
We took of some time to catch a few fashion shows…..kinda wishing I worked for a magazine these days reviewing shows. Love MBFW!
THE SUN CAME OUT!!!
Wildfox killin it at Soho House.
And then we headed to NYC.
Took a little time to catch some sun while I worked and set up our NYC HQ….
Let’s get these tags on some shelves already!!
Since the show I have been following up like mad! If you are a buyer and interested in our line please email me a line sheet request to Melrose@paradisiac-lifestyle.com and include your shop name and website or physical address. Thank you!

Robot Heart Party [Into the Wormhole!], Brooklyn New York — May 4, 2013 —
If you have never been to Burning Man and want to understand what you may be getting yourself into this August, I would suggest catching one of the parties hosted by one of the camps which is responsible for throwing some of the best parties there. For the many of you reading this that don’t know what Burning Man is, it is a giant art and music festival in the middle of the desert in Black Rock Desert of Nevada that goes on for 10 days with some insanely creative projects that are likely to take you on a trip that will remain in your brain for life whether you are on drugs or not. I would say that Robot Heart has one of the best reputations at Burning Man as an overall camp and that this year when I give up my Burning Man virginity, I will be frequenting their camp to put on my dance moves and butterfly wings which I better start making now. I think if you added up all the time put together on each person to prepare for these events, you could start a new thread of time in the universe that would go on forever. The effort made for these events is not understandable until you witness it for yourself and I just love it. This kind of thing is totally for you if you like dancing, dressing up as insane as you like, meeting new people, being entertained, and a few other things that I’m sure you have just enough imagination to put together.
And so Robot Heart threw a fundraiser for their Burning Man camp and it was hosted in a giant space in Brooklyn last weekend. It was very fun and there was eye candy for days. I ran into aliens, lobsters, Indians, hippies, creepy monsters, firemen, dominatrixes, a whole bunch of gremlins, a space captain, and I myself of course was Captain Rose for this one.
I must make one confession; I’m completely stoked but also entirely frightened for the madness which will be going on at Burning Man this year after attending this party. I think I’ll go as a sober person to take it all in after this event. This is all a lot to take in and on Sake and her sister it was all a bit much for me after traveling from California that same morning. But no regrets here [ever] and thank you, Robot Heart. We heart you!
Enough talking, go take a trip…. I hope you do enjoy the party. We all did!
This girl rocks. She makes her jackets! Please comment with your names if you want credit guys! xoxox

The One and Only Reeve Collins
Couples who wear matching pants…match AND stick together. 😉
This is Marina Dobreva….if you’re wondering why she’s got the most amazing outfit it’s because she’s a stylist. This girl seriously kills it. I suggest you look her up and book her for your next party if I’m not available. 😉
These guys are so funny. This is them in the light….and the dark.
Is that her chakra or is it just me?
This girl made my favorite magic of the night. Thanks, girl!
The Beautiful People
My wife sister bestie for life, Emilia Grabowska. She is also an amazing model with New York Models if you can’t stop staring at her just book her to model your next whatevers.
No party is complete without this girl.
My personal favorite shot of the night. “Look at the love!”
And just before we left I ran to the outhouse and the hat is gone forever. SHIT! Literally. Ugh. Well we go into these things with that understanding that we give and we take and we are never really ever the same.
And now I am off to Prague before I go to Italy for my cousin’s wedding. Weeeee! Mel Rose continues to travel
