Miami SWIM Week 2011

July is about to get a whole lot steamer. International media, celebrities, industry insiders, international fashionistas and bikini clad models are set to take over a week in Miami Beach mid-July for the 2011 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim from July 15-19.

Annually the fashion industry celebrates swimwear designs from around the world. AWB will be at hottest shows and exclusive after-parties all week - covering the guest lists, collection must-haves and everything in between.

The One Piece in You!

The weather is always warm in the Caribbean, the sun is bright and the beaches are perfect not to mention the fabulous beach parties! I am getting excited seeing all the Summer 2010 swimwear arriving in our studio, the fabulous colors, embellishments, cuts and designs. So many to choose from I feel like a kid at Christmas making a list for Santa...

There was a time when I thought one-piece swimsuits were just not that exciting. But whether it's the new styles being designed or maybe my taste has changed, I now adore the idea of a retro-glamorous one-piece. The Despi Swimwear 2010 collection features a number of sexy one-piece styles, which are definitely refreshing upgrades from the traditional one-piece. In the Summer 2010 collection, the sexy white one-piece features a dramatic plunging neckline, a low-cut back, and flattering ruched overlay detail.  In addition, this 2010 Despi style features beautiful purple stone details at the ends of the ties, which give the suit an added touch of style.  Diamond is definitely one of the sexiest one-piece styles of the season its available in white, black & aqua!
