If there was ever an event perfectly designed for Miami Beach, it’s the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Miami Swim coming July 20-23, 2013. During the Miami Swim Show, the action centers around the Raleigh Hotel on Collins Avenue and is filled with non-stop swimwear fashion shows and, of course, parties.
Miami Swim Week is where the world’s top bikini and swimwear designers introduce their collections for the coming year to the world, and if you want to attend you should book your hotel reservations early (like last month) and plan on arriving at least a day early to get a feel for the area. Visit some of the outdoor cafes on Lincoln Road…take a dip in the Ocean…and of course, don’t forget the many nightclubs Miami is so famous for.
Also, the largest swimwear trade show in the world, Swim Show, will be bringing together 3500 swimwear brands from 60 different countries to showcase their collections at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
For entertainment, we can recommend the Van Dyke Cafe’s second floor jazz club on Lincoln Road which swings to a hot jazz beat every single night at 9pm. Stop by any evening to experience the grooves of premier jazz performers and a subtle fusion of vibes, percussion, bass, piano and trumpets.
For nightlife, hit-up the Fontainebleau Resort’s fabulous LIV nightclub which hosts dance music super stars such as DJ Tiesto alongside resident DJ Mednas around midnight.
Or you can head out to the golden sands of South Beach to dance under the stars to top DJs. Check Nikki’s FaceBook page for various events.
