It was an evening of tropical splendor, champagne, canapés and stunning fashion. Simply, Pariquita is “Sexy, Brazilian… if you love your body this is the pace to be,” says Jackie. “Periquita is a piece of Brazil that we have brought to South Africa. With the best swimwear, the best colours for all those beautiful South African women,” says Julianna who has poured her creativity, love of fashion and style into a boutique poised to be the go-to place for every South African woman ready for the beach this summer.
