Planet Fashion TV the syndicated TV series, and online magazine hosted the opening night debut of newly, re-imagined Swim Week 2016. “The impeccably coordinated event was the highlight of the week,” according to Chuck Handy III, third generation swimwear designer.

Playing out on the edge of an infinite sea and within the beaches breathtaking glass bauble resorts, Swim Week 2016 was the crown jewel of the swim and resort apparel industry this year. In contrast to years past where most activities unspooled at the Miami Beach Convention Center Tradeshow and at one designated hotel venue this year saw the democratization and blossoming of the confab with coinciding shows and gatherings throughout Miami Beach and Miami.

As the world’s largest and must attend gathering of Swimwear designers, models and buyers Swim Week, Hammock, Funkshion and LDJ Swim Miami all participated.  A heady brew of Fashion Shows, Lounges and Parties were dispersed throughout Miami Beach with pop up events as far afield as the burgeoning Wynwood District.  There was such a plethora of invitations that all attendees were able to mix “trade” with “pleasure” while indulging in previews of collections that mere mortals will not experience until the Fall Cruise Season or Spring-Summer of 2016.

The Planet Fashion TV event unified the week, bringing out buyers, press and fashion lovers from all five continents.  With Smartwater ™ keeping guests hydrated on a night of hyper humidity; Planet Fashion TV’s opening Runway Show spanned the Olympic Size pool unveiling the Lacoste prêt a porte collection and Chuck Handy Swim.

The audience was wowed by a triumphant performance by Julio Iglesias Jr. fresh from a whirlwind European tour where he shared the stage with Senor Iglesias. Later, vocalists Natasha Haynes and newly signed Sony recording artist, Miesa performed pop hits to a standing room ovation.

The highly charged opening night of exquisitely attired revelers saw visual and fashion innovators making a name for themselves.  The garden cocktail unveiled swimwear presentations by Chio, Ritchie Swimwear, VIBE Swimwear and with hand fashioned adornments by Charli Girls.

Guests were treated to a delectable, Asian inspired buffet and bottomless goblets of California’s Cryptic Wines and varietals from Four Vines Winery.  Pangea Wine and Spirits presented several double gold, award winning spirits with 49th Parallel Ultra-Premium Vodka, as the first vodka in North America to carry a “Certified Gluten-Free” and “GMO free” designation, was served.

The green hedged poolside retreat was magically transformed into a verdant secret garden and lounge by Paul Sokolski of Designs of the Future, Vasiliki Karlin of Nayked Botanicals, Lisa Klepper and Michelle Astor Gilbert of Charli Girls paying homage to the lavish Boho ambiance.  K2 Models attired the nymphs in the ‘flou’ tailoring of handmade Spanish Lace by Ibiza’s own Piluca Bayarri available stateside exclusively through Kokonuts Atlantic in Delray Beach.  The chic clique of guests glittered and giggled at a two part event that most found inaccessible unless they were on ‘the list’.

Internationally acclaimed producer Celia Evans is confident that hosting her annual ‘swim reveal’ in Miami Beach with SWIMMIAMI further assured the show’s success.

A collaborative effort of many divergent moving parts further attests to Evans mastery in coordinating Fashion driven,  digital content productions, media extravaganzas and fashion shows as far afield as Cannes, Monaco and Los Angeles. With additional creative assistance by the debonair celebrity stylist Shervan MClain, Rocco Donna Salon, Francois Huynh and Cristiane Roget of AdAvenue Group Paris and VIPictures, Rene Mejia Designs, Kimberly Marin and Victoria Worship of Body Sculptures Centers of Florida furthered an atmosphere where fashion genius and glorious excess merged.

Upcoming blue chip gatherings are being planned by Sea Star Films/Planet Fashion TV and VIpictures and AD Avenue Group for the pop up Art Basil Celebration and the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.  “It is gratifying that the official opening debut at SWIMMIAMI presented by Planet Fashion TV at W South Beach was such a resounding success,” Evans smiled with a sigh of relief.
