I’m sure by now if you’re stylistically inclined or living in Miami, you know that one of the biggest events in the fashion industry is the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. The event which takes place in Miami focuses on swimwear and brings together some of the hottest swimwear collections and designers for one ultimate showdown. We can’t even tell you how excited we are to see the 2015 swimwear collections from our favorite designers.
Yet, while we are dreaming of runways and caged bikinis, we’re still reminiscing over last year’s events and jam-packed runway shows. Three fashion shows stand out from last year’s festivities, and they just so happen to be from our favorite designers.
Luli Fama Swimwear
Lourdes “Luli” Hanimian and her brother-in-law Augusto Hanimian are the joint creative forces behind Luli Fama Swimwear. The assortment of exclusive pieces, including monokinis, bikinis, cover-ups and dresses, are made from light fabrics and enhanced with exceptional details tailored to accentuate a woman’s figure. Every collection reflects a new thought process and design concept. Luli and Augusto are inspired by a variety of factors, including Luli’s Cuban descent and Miami upbringing. The cosmopolitan culture and Latin influence in Luli Fama are apparent in the contemporary shapes, intense colors and fusion of innocence and seductiveness.
From the beginning, last year’s Luli Fama Swimwear show started off with a bang when Latin dancers made their way out onto the runway. With their incredible talent and Spanish flair, these dancers set the festive mood and made us even more excited for Luli’s highly anticipated 2014 collection. How can you not love a runway show that incorporates Latin music and dancing? They literally had us out of our seats.
Maaji swimwear is always a fan favorite for us. Last year, the Mercedes Swim Week Fashion show was the first time hosting a show for the brand, and it was certainly not the last. You can’t help but get caught up wondering what reversible fabric this brand will come up with next. With a pirate-themed show, the vibrant colors and styles wowed the crowd last year.
The designers for Maaji swimwear have been creating swimsuits for young women since 2002. With eclectic creations and innovative cuts, the new collection is full of movement, color and unconventional shapes, designed especially for trendy and modern women who like to experiment with fashion. For Maaji, every single detail of the garment is important. Their commitment to generating products of excellent quality, design, and innovative technology is illustrated in the Colombian company’s creations. Their secret ingredient is the mixture of colors, forms, silhouettes, and textures. The result: a unique product.
In the past 11 years, L Space Swimwear designer Monica Wise has emerged as a leading creator of sleek, trendy swimwear. Inspired by the world’s most exotic beaches and known for its glamorous versatility, L*Space offers stunning silhouettes with an array of fabulous prints for mixing and matching. Their “Sensual and Seamless Solids” project an elegant beach or poolside style. Last year’s 2014 swim show focused more on fringe and flutter tops which were the ultimate hit this season. Celebrities from the Bravo TV channel showed up to the runway event as well, showing off their own fashion skills.
We can’t help but get SUPER excited for the 2015 swimwear collections from some of our favorite brands. Stay tuned for all up-to-date runway photos and information as it comes this weekend. 2015 Mercedes Benz Swim Week begins on Thursday and continues on until Monday, so get ready for the ultimate swimwear showdown.
