Miami Swim Week showcases new collections (includes video story)

The biggest swim show in the country took place last week, with designers Azulu, ONEONE, Natasha Tonic, Lain Snow, Shan, Curve, and Luli Fama showcasing their collections. Paraiso Miami Swim Week took place June 8 to 10 with more than 200 media outlets covering the event and 1.5 million watching the livestream.

“I would like to see a lot of print and a lot of skin because we are in Miami,” said Elisa Londono, editor of @ImagenMiami magazine. “I just would like to see how everyone dresses for these types of events. I think that this is a way that you show the world who you are, your personality and what you believe in.”

Among the attendees are swimwear buyers, manufacturers, designers, press, bloggers, influencers, fashion consultants, stylists, VIPs and other fashion industry leaders from over 60 countries.

Other swim shows will return July 4 to 12. More information can be found on miamiswimweek.net.
