Miami Swim Week 2017

If Miami wasn’t hot enough, tall models in bikinis flooded Miami last weekend for Swim Week.   The best swim and beachwear designers displayed their top work on the runways of South Beach!  Being a Miami local, I basically live in bathing suits and coverups for more than half a year!  I always look forward to Swim Week for inspiration and new trends.  The runways were supercharged with edgy and unique accessories and designs; It’s not just the regular tiny bikini and beach hair anymore!  I loved the variety and combination of modern tendencies with historic swimsuit fashion!

I had the opportunity to interview two very different and incredibly successful designers who actually answered the same on my very last question for each, without know!

What makes Swim Week unique and special to you compared to other fashion events you are involved in? Miami Swim Week is very special! It is an opportunity to show my collection to my current and potential clients, press, buyers and fashion influencers who come from all over the world.

Why did you decide to go into swim/beachwear design? As a Brazilian Fashion Designer that was influence by the beach, I wanted to provide a unique, high-end and luxury swim wear to sophisticated and sexy customers.

What are some of your favorite trends and style of the season? I love unique embroidery, paint and Swarovski applications, which is all inspired by my international travels and culture.

How does your personality translate into your design? My personality translates into my design because I am persistent to provide great design for unique, quality and cool woman. My love for fashion is evident through my commitment to designs.

What has been your career highlight? The highlight has been able to spend many years working in the field of prints and designs with international fashion brands like Carolina Herrera, being the founder of S|U Design Beachwear and participating in Miami Fashion Week in order to have the opportunity show my designs in the US.

Where would you want your brand to be in 5 years? I want to be in a luxury retailer company in stores and online

If you could chose any celebrity, model, person in the world, who would you like to see wearing your designs and why? Bella Hadid. I love her high fashion and edgy style
