Haute Summer

This summer, the hottest place in South Florida will be the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, set to turn up the thermostat on fashion and style like never before.

Style admirers listen up: From July 19-23, Miami Beach will be more packed, bold and beautiful than usual thanks to the return of the annual Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim. As designers, fashionistas and models donning the latest looks descend on the beach, they will be celebrating the latest from some of the hottest names in fashion. Make sure to check out the likes of Mara Hoffman, Diesel and True Religion, as well as smaller upcoming designers. The event will also offer plenty of opportunities to catch shows and parties, most of which are invitation-only. Start calling your industry friends to score a ticket, or head to the beach to do some celebrity-spotting if you can’t get in;
