Friday, I started pre-gaming Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim at Soho Beach House for the Cosmopolitan en Español 6th annual Summer Splash fashion show.
After the two-hour cocktail party before the show, I found myself in a very crowded poolside reception. I was fortunate enough to by at the ‘VIP’ area containing the seats and gift bags with wonderful goodies and complimentary Cîroc cocktails, with no bar lines.
Just a little after 10 p.m., emcee Alejandra Espinoza of Univision stepped out and welcomed everyone to the show and the show started.
I was fortunate enough to get heads up on the new trends for next year.
Nationally known designers including Barraca Chic, Eberjey, Luli Fama, Maya Swimwear, Samsara Imports by designer Lissette Atassi and Zingara sent out looks completed by official sponsors COVERGIRL and Pantene — heat and humidity resistant make-up and hair being important in Miami.
Once the show ended, Latin pop duo Domino Saints performed.
