Fashion Week Swim 2015, at The Raleigh hotel in Miami Beach through today (July 17-21). is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, according to the organization.
“The sheer amount of global media exposure this event brings is amazing,” said Fashion Week Swim spokesperson Cece Feinberg told The Miami Herald.
“A young swimwear brand can be catapulted into overnight stardom — and an established brand can be reinvigorated. It’s that buzz of expectation — of seeing the best and the newest that keeps the energy level high every year.”
Among the brands staging shows this year are Beach Bunny, Dolores Cortés, Frankie’s Bikinis, Luli Fama, Maaji, MIKOH, We Are Handsome, Suboo, 6 Shore Road, Mara Hoffman, Wildfox Swim and Poko Pano.
More than 10,000 spectators were expected to attend the runway shows, according to MBFW’s Web site.
