With the days getting hotter and summer in full swing, lying at the beach and diving into a pool seems to be on everyone’s mind. Bathing suits are flying off the hangers at different stores so that not only are you cooled off under the steamy Florida sun, but you also have the look and style to catch people’s attention. Here’s the problem: With fashion constantly changing, how do you know which swimsuit styles are in? No worries! With Miami being a popular destination for those who want the perfect tan and enjoy the beautiful ocean scenery, it’s no surprise that a fashion show solely revolving around swimsuits would take place in the MIA.
Let me introduce you to an event displaying the hottest styles of the summer right in our backyard. The annual Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week SWIM is a week-long event that will exhibit the latest summer trends from designers all over the world. MBFW provides a runway for designers to introduce their latest creations to the world, while also enjoying what Miami has to offer. From swimsuits to cover-ups, you’ll be in the know of how to dress for summer ‘14. Some brands displayed will be Maaji Swimwear, Beach Bunny, BCBGeneration, Roxy and Minimale Animale with designers including A.Z Araujo, Monica Wise and Pooja Kharbanda.
Take a break from catching those UV Rays and splashing around in the water to check out what the fashion world has in store for all of us beach dwellers. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week SWIM will kick off July 18th at the Raleigh Hotel beginning at 8pm. Make sure to check out their website for a full list of shows and activities going on throughout the week at http://miami.mbfashionweek.com/.
