Miami Swim Week 2018 closed last week and it was bigger and better than ever with runway shows, exhibits and parties galore. What may surprise you is that this is the most prominent swim week in the US. Events were centered in Miami Beach, at the Convention Center, in tents in Collins Park,and hotels including 1 Hotel and the W South Beach. Not only were there bathing suits and beach wear for men and women, but beauty products , accessories (lots of hats), and even beverage (coconut waters). Designers from Bali and Crete to Brazil, France and the UK were represented. Here’s a photo gallery of some of my favorite pieces. Note that the fashions are the Spring 2019 collections so will be in the shops or online late this year.
