Miami Swim Week Recap III: Betsey Johnson SS14 Swim Collection Launch Event

Betsey Johnson, American fashion designer renowned for feminine and quirky designs, hosted the most dazzling event during Mercedes-Benz Swim Week in Miami this year.  Filled with plenty of flare and pink galore, the launch party for her SS2014 swimwear collection was nothing short of fabulous.  The inspiration behind her latest collection combined Betsey's energy and eccentric ability to combine innovative design elements from travel, new trends and ageless discoveries.  Elite fashion bloggers, editors and socialites met on the rooftop of the Betsy Hotel (serendipity, right?) which overlooked a gorgeous view of Miami Beach's sandy beach.

“My swimwear is for the young and the forever young!  It's fun and flirty and a little bit rock and roll. I want my girls to feel good in my suits so it's also all about the fit!”, said Betsey.

Guests enjoyed signature "The Johnson" cocktails infused with prickly pear puree, POM pomegranate juice and Russian Standard Vodka.  Light bites were passed around as attendees jammed to a live DJ and beautiful models rocked Betsey's new swimwear collection.  Guests were also delighted with a special announcement that Betsey partnered with Malibu Design Group on this collection.

 “We are excited to partner with the iconic brand Betsey Johnson. This is a great way to expand our contemporary portfolio and we are honored Betsey is leading us there.” exclaimed Malibu Design Group president Henry Fan. 

The Betsey Johnson SS14 Swimwear Collection will be available October 2013 at department stores and

Miami Swim Week Recap I: Cosmo Splash + ASOS Penthouse

Miami Swim Week featured a number of fabulous events, highlighting sexy swimwear and beautiful models in sunny Miami.  A few of fashion-goers' favorite events during Mercedes-Benz Swim Week included the much anticipated Cosmopolitan en Espanol Summer Splash event at the SLS Hotel and ASOS Penthouse at Soho Beach House.

As Latin celebrity guests paraded into the 7th annual Cosmo Summer Splash on the pink carpet, swimwear models were back stage preparing for the heated up runway with Pantene Pro-V heat-resistant and humidity proof products.  Ciroc and Peroni provided fashion-saavy socialites with signature cocktails prior to the runway showcasing of nationally known swimwear designs by Samsara Imports, Inca, Eberjey, Zingara, Fitsico, Cuban Rice, Maya Swimwear and Papi Underwear (menswear).

The UK's largest independent online fashion and beauty retailer, ASOS, invited select attendees to ASOS's official Penthouse Party at Miami Swim this year.  Located at the private and chic Soho Beach House, the ASOS Penthouse was filled with Miami's most elite guests.  Soho Beach House is a private members club, hotel and spa located in the historic site of the Sovereign Hotel and overlooks the ocean with two pool areas.

Guests sipped on exclusively designed Corzo + Red Bull + Perrier cocktails while music by IO ECHO and NANCY WHANG of LCD SOUNDSYSTEM resonated throughout the upper pool deck area.  What Miami Swim Week party would be complete without some glam swag bags and an ASOS photo booth to snap photos?

Cosmopolitan Summer Splash 2012 Event Recap - Miami Swim Week

As many of you may know, this past week was Miami Swim Week/Fashion Week and the city of Miami Beach was packed with fashionistas from all over the nation.  I received a private invitation to attend this year's Cosmopolitan Summer Splash event which was presented by Pantene and of course Cosmopolitan Magazine.  I attended the event a few years ago when it was held at the Setai Hotel but this year's runway showcasing was at an even better venue, Soho Beach House.  It was the perfect setting to host a swimwear fashion show as the venue featured an elongated pool outside with appropriate seating areas for guests.  It was a fabulous event!

Furthermore, each seated guest received a custom Cosmopolitan tote bag with the following goodies inside:

1 Cosmopolitan beach towel
1 Samsara Imports bangle
1 bottle of Pantene moisturizer and styler
2 CoverGirl Blast Flipsticks (in Glimmer Lueur and Vixen Seductrice shades)
1 new issue of Cosmopolitan magazine
1 pair of Cosmopolitan sunglasses
