DC Swim Week created a major splash on Miami Beach with the largest global swimwear fashion show series in the world featuring more than 70 diverse swimwear and resort wear fashion brands. The event included debuting new Summer 2023 swimwear collections on the runway at the SLS Hotel South Beach.
From curvy, plus-size brands, to black-owned, as well as Latina-owned and sustainable fashion brands, the swimwear fashion shows from Miami Swim Week™ The Shows did not disappoint.
“Body positivity, self-love, and beautiful fashion as well as feminine empowerment were the major themes in this year’s Miami Swim Week 2022 shows,” said Moh Ducis, founder and CEO of DC Swim Week, the parent company that owns and operates Miami Swim Week™ The Shows.
Miami Swim Week™ The Shows hosted numerous epic after parties, influencer dinners, and brand activations across Miami Beach with the swim industry’s top designers, models, influencers and media from around the world. The company also hosted a three-day global swimwear trade show— Hammock Shows, at the New World Center on Miami Beach, connecting international and North American fashion buyers and consumers with renowned and emerging swimwear and resort wear fashion brands from around the world.
“An estimated 1.6 billion global impressions were generated for Miami Swim Week this year across social media and live streaming platforms throughout the week-long series of shows, events and parties,” Ducis said.
Miami Swim Week™ The Shows is one of the most anticipated series of fashion runway events in the U.S., highlighting new swimwear trends, natural shapes, sustainable fabrics, slow fashion brands and ethical manufacturing from more than 70 designers who presented their visions for next summer’s must-haves. The runway shows were executed beautifully while also offering an inclusive, fun and vibrant atmosphere for attendees and virtual show goers who watched the runway shows online via live stream on YouTube. This year’s Miami Swim Week 2022 also included the first-ever swimwear Metaverse debut.
