Miami Swim Fashion Week is back on Miami Beach beginning today, July 8, and running through Sunday, July 11. This annual event by Paraiso focuses on the promotion of swimwear and resort wear brands and their upcoming collections and is the largest event like it in the world. And what better place to do it than where we wear bathing suits all year long!
This year is a busy schedule of runway shows, events, and parties to make up for last year's pandemic restrictions. In fact, this is the first full capacity fashion event since COVID-19. The Paraiso tent will be at Collins Park and events will also be held at the Ritz-Carlton South Beach, Mondrian South Beach, and Plymouth Miami Beach.
Some of the 30+ designers you can expect to see include:
- Oh Polly!
- Honey Birdette
- Liliana Montoya
- My Happy by Stef Roitman & Mery Racauchi
- Mery Playa
- NIA LYNN Collection by Nicole Williams English
- and more!
While you can find resortwear and bikinis at any event, but some will be showing off cultural diversity and sustainability as well. PNDMC has a collection created by Shervan McClain, the first African American Male swimwear designer to show at Swim Week. Gabriella Montells is from Miami and her swimwear line, Swim'in G uses eco-friendly sustainable techno-fabric, made of ECONYL® regenerated Nylon, and also gives back to the oceans.
