The inaugural Planet Fashion Swim Weekend took place July 20-22 at the SLS South Beach, featuring exclusive presentations by Roberto Cavalli Swimwear, Nash Beach, Revel Rey, DSquared2, Karma Bikinis, OMG Miami Swimwear, Just Bones Boardwear, Hot Miami Styles, Gabriela Pires Beachwear and Art Hearts Fashion. Each show presented the latest styles for Spring—Summer 2018 collections as part of an eclectic showcase that marked a new era for the swimwear fashion industry.
“Our three-night showcase gave audiences a special preview showing how diverse and innovative these swimwear brands have become with their creativity and vision. We wanted to present a unique assortment of both established swimwear brands that represent today’s leading designers, together with the very best from Miami who are also making a statement within the industry nationwide,” says Celia Evans, founder and CEO of Planet Fashion.
Following each nightly series of fashion shows, the Planet Fashion After-party at Hyde Beach, the luxe indoor-outdoor hotel lounge at SLS South Beach, gave attendees an opportunity to rub shoulders and celebrate Swim Weekend with some of the show’s leading designers and modeling talent.
