Style File: Swim Week
Mercedes-Benz Swim Week is five days of scantily-clad models flaunting next season's hottest looks in swimwear. It's fun for the fashion industry but not so much for the rest of us who don't get invited.
WSVN -- Brandon Grant: "When these swim shows come into the city, people aren't able to experience them."
So "Miami Magazine" is giving you the chance to dive in to all the fashion fun. They're hosting a fab party called "Splashion" on Wednesday, July 13th at the Fontainebleau's nightclub LIV.
Brandon Grant: "They're going to get fashion. They're going to get beauty, amazing cocktails. We are definitely making everyone a fashion insider."
Just like at the swim shows you'll watch models strut the runway in smokin' designer brands.
Lori Medici-Perry Ellis International: "Anything from Jantzen, including vintage, retro, glamorous looks. Perry Ellis offers contemporary tribal inspired looks. As well as Jag, which is a more of surfer chic, neon bright floral print."
GBS Beauty Store will be there to doll you up and you can even get a complimentary rubdown from Elemis spa, Rik Rak Salon will also give you a new summer hair do.
Caridad Gutierrez-Rik Rak Salon: "We're going to be doing some feathers, some extensions. Just Glaming' you up for the night."
Brandon: "It is RSVP only. So RSVP fast."
Since we like giving away swim secrets local designer Red Carter gave us a sneak preview of what he'll be showing at the big swim shows.
Red Carter: "2012 is on fire.One of the hot trends is black and white colors. Very sophisticated,
Red says some of his 2012 swimwear line is inspired by Miami's art deco colors.
Red Carter: "We're bringing art deco coloring into bold bright coloring. So we're working with a citron color and some really beautiful blues, and some cutout and studs."
There's also a new twist on animal prints.
Red Carter" "We're doing something that is called photo print, which is a really digital printing that can really bring color out. You'll see great animal printed rainbow brights that really accent the body in a sexy way."
It's sure to be a steamy 2012 in Miami.
Belkys Nerey: "700 to 800 people will be able to attend Miami Magazine's Splashion event, but again, you need to rsvp."
