• Cleo Magazine 2011 Swimsuit issue launch party - Billabong heats up the catwalk!!!

The 2011 Cleo Annual Swimsuit Party took place last night (November 9th) fittingly on The Island, a floating open-air venue, on Sydney Harbour.

As the sun went down the Billabong swimwear models came out and despite a momentary power outage the runway show got underway. And kudos to the models for taking on a catwalk on a rocking boat, no easy task, but they pulled it off without a hitch or a fall.

Hot trends in the collection included floral prints, high waisted pants, frills, knots, pastel colours and a touch of nautical stripes.
