Swim Week was a 6 day marathon and I enjoyed every sleepless minute of it! For the past 3 years, I’ve been kicking off this city’s sexiest week of fashion with Miami Magazine’s annual opener “Splashion” sponsored by South Florida BMW Centers and previewing 2018 swimsuit collections by Peroni Emerging Designers’ Indah, Ola Feroz, Vilebrequin, and My Bestfriend’s Closet. This year, the show also collaborated with a presentation by the Miami Dolphin Cheerleaders and I also had the privilege of sharing the turntables with fellow friend, DJ Irie.
Day 2 showcased one of the week’s most anticipated shows, the 6th Annual Peroni Emerging Designer Series at the Nautilus hotel. I was honored to DJ this event once again before viewing the runway show featuring 10 finalists including Bianca Coletti and 2016 Winning Designer Sea Jasper, all debuting their Italian inspired designs.
Newly added to my personal line-up this year, was the 7th annual Style Saves fashion show fundraiser which I’ve attended as a guest each year. Behind the decks this time, it was an absolute pleasure to play this sold-out event hosted by Rocky Barnes and Paulina Vega at The Setai, along with providing the runway music for designers such as Alice & Olivia and ishine365.
Saturday & Sunday was fun under the sun with two amazing daytime events. Treats Magazine! brought some Swim Week paradise to 1 Hotel South Beach with an exclusive poolside all-white party. I was right in my element providing the poolside sound for hundreds of bikini-clad models and celebrity guests including Leo DiCaprio. To close up, I joined Peroni once again, at East Miami where Brickell City Centre retailers showed their latest summer styles.
Too many sponsors to mention all, but a special thank you goes to long-time clients Modern Luxury, 1 Hotel South Beach, Style Saves, Funkshion and of course, Peroni Nastro Azzurro. Can’t wait to do it all over again next year… but first, sleep!
