Miami Swim Week is basically a holiday for me.
I can’t even begin to explain how excited I was this year and it was all I could talk about for the month of July.
This year was really special for me because as I continue to grow as a blogger, my opportunity to attend these exclusive events only increases. It’s almost surreal to me, honestly. This isn’t to say that I’m some sort of IG hot shot, but it does inspire me to continue content creation.
If I had to pick between New York Fashion Week and Miami Swim Week, it’d be an easy & obvious choice for me. The energy in Miami Swim Week is so much more refreshing. NYFW is a lot of high fashion (both on the runway + the audience), while Swim Week is a little bit more laid back. Plus, it’s nice to see looks on the runway that i’d actually wear.
Swim Week is totally hectic and non-stop. You definitely need to make yourself a schedule of runway shows to attend because a lot of the showcases are at the same time.
I attended shows and events Thursday-Sunday and my top 3 favorites were:
+Fashion Palette (Australian)
Here’s a little recap!
Those are seriously not even a portion of the photos. I was able to get those online because I obviously wouldn’t have been able to take those high quality images myself.
As for my outfits, I wore vibrant colors, prints and comfortable small heels that I could walk in all day.
Most of these shows are invite-only but the Art Hearts Fashion showcase is available to the public with tickets. They provide top designer runway shows throughout the week. I love Art Hearts Fashion showcases because they are organized and you don’t have to worry about going place-to-place. This year, all their runway shows were held at the Faena Hotel (which is so fab btw!!)
I absolutely adored the Liliana Montoya designs! It’s a swimwear line I would actually consider purchasing myself. Here are my top 3 favorite looks
The Miami Swim Week experience is really what you make of it. It really isn’t all that glamorous at times because it’s freakin hot (miami probs), you have to get there early to secure a good spot and you can even encounter a few snobby people.
For the second year in a row I took my best friend and we had such an amazing week. Adri is a f*cking rockstar. She loves these events just as much as I do and she’s the only person who doesn’t complain about how picky I am with my photos.
All I can say is…New York Fashion Week we’re coming for ya real soon!
