FashionTV takes you to sexy Miami Beach, where designer Kimberly Gordon presented her Wildfox 2013 Swimwear collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim. Before the show began, the flawless models were caught up behind the curtains, prepping for the show in hair and makeup. Wildfox's Summer 2013 collection is all about having as much fun as possible, being a girly girl and basically, not taking life too seriously.
Swim Week — a flurry of trade and fashion shows, parties and other events surrounding swimwear, the fashion world is again aiming the spotlight on South Florida. Here, the Miami aesthetic reigns, with more bright colors, prints and flowing, cutting-edge styles.
Whether designing swimwear, footwear, children’s or menswear, women’s apparel, evening and bridal gowns or lingerie, fashion designers are flourishing in Miami, where barriers to entry are lower, and competition less fierce than in other U.S. design hubs like New York or Los Angeles.
Swim Week puts focus on Miami designers - Business - MiamiHerald.com: "The Swimwear Association of Florida’s SwimShow, July 20-23, is in its 31st year, and is the longest-running and largest annual swimwear trade show in the world. Located: Miami Beach Convention Center. Features: 2,500 lines from 60 countries — up from 25 brands when the show launched at The Merchandise Mart in 1982.
