A PERFECT “MATCH” DURING THE 2009 SONY ERICSSON OPEN


Fashion house Pineda-Covalin and the Mexico Tourism Board brought Mexican couture to a whole new level during the Sony Ericsson Open on April 1st, in Key Biscayne, Fl. Tennis fans and fashionistas alike gathered to preview the Spring/Summer 2009 collection, a mix of unique and colorful designs inspired by Mexican culture and art. The collection did not disappoint, as cheers and applause followed each model that strutted the catwalk, covered in silky fabrics that danced with the wind. Bringing Mexico a step closer, a live performance of Mariachis closed the show, with an appearance by designer Ricardo Covalin as the grand finale.
