Summer’s heat was in full force at this year’s Swim Fashion Week. Hundreds of bikini lovers flooded the beaches of Miami July 14th-17th to partake in an international celebration of the season’s latest and greatest in swimwear fashion. Designers from around the world exhibited their finest collections at the Miami Beach Convention Center while sun-kissed babes glided down the runway adorned in hundreds of bikinis by Frankie’s, Indah, San Lorenzo, Vix and more. Despite such an impressive list of fashion shows, parties and performances, SURFING Magazine’s Swimsuit Issue along with ISHINE365 still managed to splash into the spotlight with their Summer Pool Party & Pop-Up Shop. Hosted in the heart of Miami’s Art Deco District at the iconic Nautilus Hotel, it was clear from the beginning that there would be no shortage of luxury. Lavish daybeds, private cabanas and underwater sound systems embedded in saltwater pools surrounded by beautiful people including our cover model Juli Herz and Kyra Santoro (Sports Illustrated), made for one heck of a tropical paradise.
Brands including Amuse Society, Swim Like a Mermaid, Indah, House of Au+Ora, Aloha Collection and Kopari provided endless amounts of eye candy while a generous amount of pampering was given by Stila Cosmetics, Babes in Braids and Beauty Blender. Of course, it would not have been possible without our stellar team of sponsors. Thanks to all of our sponsors; FUNKSHION, ISHINE365, Amuse Society, Indah, Frankies Bikinis, Swim Like a Mermaid, House of Au+Ora, Kopari, Aloha Collection, Stila, Beauty Blender, Babes N Braids, Be Social, Red Bull, Tito’s Vodka, Vita Coco, and of course the Nautilus, a SIXTY HOTEL and last but certainly not least, a big thank you to HobNob Invites, for their seamless RSVP process.
