Your Guide to Miami Swim Week
Jul 19, 2012 - by Danika Daly
Here at FashionIndie, we basically live for fashion weeks. In the summer, Miami Swim Week is the best excuse to indulge in barely-there fashion, especially during the American heat wave. Whether you need to unwind from the shows or just want to relax by a pool and enjoy some sales, we have the ultimate Swim Week guide for you. There is lots of pampering involved. When in Miami, do as the Miamians do.
Ocean Drive Cover Party
This invite-only event is the perfect kickoff with July/August issue cover star Jessica Gomes. There will be a fashion presentation by Nanette Lepore and Invicta Watches. Did we mention specialty cocktails courtesy of Maestro Dobel Tequila?
Thursday July 19, 10pm to Midnight. Delano Beach Club, 1685 Collins Ave, Miami Beach
Style Saves 1-Year Anniversary Party
Now is your chance to get into the members-only Soho Beach House. Style Saves hosts their 1-year anniversary party with shows by Trina Turk, Papi, Atrium and ISHINE365. Tickets are $100 in advance and benefit Style Saves students.
Thursday July 19, 9pm to midnight. Soho Beach House Miami, 4385 Collins Ave, Miami Beach
Lifestyle Retreat Lounge
The Lifestyle Retreat Lounge hosted by Daily Front Row is the perfect spot for hanging in-between shows. Stop by to get glammed-up with blo and Mary Kay, then take a picture of your summer look at the OMGBooth photo booth and charge your phone, computer or iPad with recharging stations by GoCharge. Have tasty summer froyo by Tasti D-Lite and wash it down with cold beer courtesy of Heineken.
If two full days of the retreat isn't enough for you, join the Lifestyle Retreat Lounge crew for a pre-party at SET on Friday night and a post-party at Mokai on Saturday. Again, free drinks for an hour.
