Another critical component of Miami Swim Week-The Shows is Hammock Trade Show, which will focus on connecting eco-friendly niche brands with fashion buyers and retailers. Upcycle Worldwide Design Competition, a new Swim Week initiative, has invited currently enrolled design students to create and show their swimwear and resort wear pieces made of 95% recycled materials, focusing on ethical and sustainable fashion. Miami Swim Week The Shows will start with a fundraising show to benefit The Little Lighthouse Foundation. 100% of all proceeds will support the nonprofit organization that assists underserved children and their families throughout South Florida. Standout runways will also include the showcase of the #kopudress, created in collaboration with KOPU Water and Miami-based couture fashion designer Ema Savahl. Serving as a symbol to represent the brand's dedication to sustainability, the dress captures the company's dedication toward the planet.
Other noteworthy shows include the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit show at W South Beach. Following the groundbreaking 2023 Swimsuit issue, superstar models such as Brooks Nader, Camille Kostek, Kamie Crawford, Katie Austin, Ellie Thumann, Nicole Williams English and swim search finalists are set to grace the runway modeling the latest trends.
Other week activations, including Art Hearts Fashion, held at Fontainebleau Miami Beach this year, returns to celebrate its 10th anniversary.
