FashionMiami Swim Week 2016

This month’s Miami Swim Week has persevered through more than you might realize to continue the tradition of overwhelming us (in a good way) with sneak-peaks of next season’s swimwear! In May of this year, IMG announced that they would not be holding the ten years running Mercedez Benz Fashion Week Swim due to losing Mercedez Benz as the title sponsor.

The now “Swim Week 2016” was made possible through the efforts of a few public relations and production companies who introduced quite a few changes, including new and exciting runway locations. Mara Hoffman, for example, reserved Casa Casuarina – more commonly known as the Versace Mansion – for a display of her most recent and always stunning creations. Bold and colorful prints made an appearance across the board while some brands like Acacia Swimwear kept their color palette soft and simple. There really is a swimsuit (or five!) for any girl at Swim Week!
