Miami Swim Week 2024: Styles, Trends, and Noteworthy Moments

Updated: Jun 13

The scorching Florida heat this Miami Swim Week underscored the pressing reality of global warming, prompting our designers to embrace a climate-conscious approach to fashion. Leading the charge, Love For Upcycling stole the show, not only with their stunning 96-year-old model gracing the runway but also with their innovative use of repurposed materials.

By transforming thrift store finds from places like Goodwill and using fabrics costing as little as $3, they crafted impeccable swim and resort wear that dazzled the audience. This commitment to sustainability highlights the fashion industry's role in preserving our planet, proving that eco-friendly designs can be both stylish and impactful.

Oo I wanna take ya to” Resort Wear

Elevate your poolside glamor and beachside chic, because resort wear is making waves in every tropical destination, from Miami to St. Barths to The Maldives. Whether you're soaking up the sun or savoring a sunset cocktail, resort style is the epitome of effortless elegance. Transition seamlessly from day to night with versatile looks that exude laid-back luxury. From breezy brunch attire to glamorous evening ensembles, resort wear isn't just a trend—it's a lifestyle that's here to stay. So slip into your favorite swimsuit, grab a floppy hat, and get ready to make a statement wherever the tide takes you.
