We are sad that Miami Swim Week 2016 said good-bye, but trends remain and here in our very own magic city we have beach season all year round, so let’s talk about swimwear fashion.

Among our favorite fashion shows this year was Runway Australia, presented by Amee Boers Fashion Agency (ABFA), a Sydney based Fashion Brand Consultancy specializing in Australian Swim and focusing on selling to the USA and to Europe.

The show was hosted at the 1 Hotel, South Beach on Collins Avenue and presented two of Australia’s elite swimwear brands: Jewels & Grace and Allerton.

Allerton opened the fashion presentation featuring sporty looks with exclusive light reflective prints along with very chic black and white pieces and unforgettable nautical stripe designs, pieces that never go out of style.

Jewels + Grace closed the show with a fresh collection where sculpted lines became the modern classic. The palette of color was blue, black, and white along with playful prints herald sprightly hues of tangerine and bottle green. We fell in love with the beach cover up pants, the perfect street style outfit for an “it girl” and must have for the season!

Both brands spotted summer shoe trends from Forever 21’s current collection, complementing the brand looks. We heard that was a way of paying tribute to the recent partnership that both brands have with Forever 21.

Well my fashionistas, let’s see what Miami Swim Week brings for us next year, meanwhile let’s preparing ourselves with time (a year ahead) by eating healthy and working out, just to be ready for the fabulous swimwear collections that are designing for Spring-Summer 2017!

Swimwear fashion trends at Miami Swim Week 2016

Miami Swim Week 2016 was a little complicate to cover since the biggest sponsor Mercedes-Benz pulled out this year, along with IMG, the main organizing company, allowing a lot of different companies to produce the shows.

In consequence, we received invitations out of the beach area (first time that something like this happens) and some of the shows were at the same time in different locations, making it impossible for us to do our job. The worst part was that some of the shows didn’t start on schedule, not allowing us enough time to attend the next ones, and some models even lost their next shows.

We still managed to cover some fashion shows and we were able to enjoy the ride because in this fashion business “the show must go on!”

This brand introduced its swimsuit and lingerie Resort Spring 2016 collection, showcasing French style designs in red, white, nude and animal prints along with a few bold retro pieces such as 80’s high waisted thongs that were the highlight of the show. The collection was complemented with black cover-ups in very light fabrics such as mesh and lace.

Creative director Wilber Tellez hit Miami Swim Week with Filthy Haanz 2016 Swim Bollywood Collection showcasing very sophisticated designs in turquoise and pure white along with multicolor stripes prints accentuating the hot pink color.

The Montreal based fashion brand closed the show with a gorgeous two-piece bikini with a nude top encrusted with stones, bringing a little Indian touch to the runway!

By the way we loved the philosophy of this brand, its symbols a hand as the meaning of FILTHY HAANZ. Its creator termed “a filthy hand” as the ultimate tribute to work and creation, the foundation of life. Very philanthropic!

See you next year!

The invitation-only event was hosted at one of the poolside bungalows, where we were pampered the Brazilian way with Caipirinhas and delicious bites while we had the opportunity to sample the products and meet and greet Camila Pierotti, the former ambassador of the brand and Marc Capra, co-founder of Sol De Janeiro,

Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer makes a splash at Miami Swim Week

Lissette Rondon ( President of Miami Fashion Spotlight.Net) attending Jergens Wet Skin Event at the Miami Beach Edition at Miami Swim Week.

Life is happening so fast these days and we don’t have enough time to pamper ourselves the way we wish. When you are over 40 it is like you need to put extra effort and attention to your beauty skin before gravity does its job--at the same time if you are successful in your work, you get more responsibilities every day, shortening your beauty daily routine to the minimum.

Last week, during Miami Swim Week, we had the opportunity to preview the breakthrough new “Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer” along with the most renowned bloggers in Miami. The charming event was hosted at the cabanas at the Miami Beach Edition, putting in the spotlight this latest innovation in Skin Care in three fragrances (“Nourishing Monoi Oil,” “Refreshing Coconut Oil” and “Calming Green Tea Oil”).



The new cream that should be applied straight out of the shower, promises to quickly hydrate the skin, moisturizing in ½ time! We truly needed to try this product to check out the results…and we did it-- it is our favorite part of this job!

This wet-skin moisturizer (our favorite was “Refreshing Coconut Oil”) completely exceeded our expectations as a team and personally, my skin looked visibly luminous the next day attending my fashion events. I was so in love with the way my skin looked that the next day I took a mini-bottle to-go filled with this lotion so I could re-applied later on my dried skin. It is definitely another must-have beauty product for women in Miami.

This fabulous prduct will hit the grocery stores, mass retailers and drugstores nationwide August 2015 and the cost will be just $6.99 for 10 oz.







 
My skin looked gorgeous the next day!



Hair Trends: John Frieda Hair Care presents new Frizz-Ease products during Miami Swim Week


Curly hair has become a nightmare during the summer days in Miami. The weather can be merciless and also inconvenient to be in style for our fashion events. When Miami Swim Week comes every year, all of us “fashionistas” want to be perfectly styled; from the pool party to the best swimwear fashion shows at night (yes, we want to attend as much as we can) praying for a no-frizzy, good-hair swim week!

Last week, we attended the John Frieda Event at the Miami Beach Edition in South Beach and let me tell you, we had a blast with our fellow bloggers meeting the latest hair care innovations from this hair care line; finding that day, the answer to our prayers- hair immune to frizz! The next days, we were so inspired to get the curly look! 


As the messengers that we are, we feel committed to share our must-have top 5 Frizz-Ease for gorgeous curly hair. Check it out!



1 & 2- Frizz Ease Beyond Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner ($9.99): This revolutionary duo delivers immediate frizz resistance and increases hair’s immunity to frizz with every use. They gradually build hair's natural defense against frizz, even in high humidity as Miami’s weather!

3 - New Frizz Ease Dream Curls Air-Dry Waves Styling Foam ($ 9.99): This amazing product (one of our favorites so far) help achieve the frizz free, wavy or curly style plus the natural look. If you have wavy or curly hair you know that air-drying, to avoid frizz and damage caused by heat tools, is a savvy way to keep hair healthy and smooth. Plus, the convenience of wash-and-go hair can’t be beat. Easy to apply and your hair is a sticky, crunchy, wet-looking, motionless helmet.

4- Frizz Ease Keraflex Flexible Hold Hairspray ($9.99): This spray is a Keratin-infused micro-fine mist and creates a soft to the touch, brushable hold that sets your style and eliminates frizz providing essential heat protection. We recommend to use this during the styling process and to lock in a finished look.

5- Frizz Ease Miraculous Recovery Repairing Crème Serum ($9.99):We recommend this non-greasy crème serum to repair damage from past heat styling. It won’t weigh hair down and it’s easy to apply on wet or dry hair.

Miami Swim Week is here and the whole city of Miami Beach is full of beautiful people everywhere. Last night at Delano South Beach, Ocean Drive magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Jared Shapiro and Publisher Courtland Lantaff celebrated the stunning Victoria’s Secret angel Martha Hunt.

Inside the issue, she reveals her close friendship with Taylor Swift, her bikini-body workouts, and how she got to be a coveted Victoria’s Secret angel. On how she stays grounded as her star rises, Hunt says, “A lot of my friends—Taylor included—we all come from similar backgrounds of smaller towns and hardworking families that are very family oriented. I think that makes such a big difference when you go off into the world trying to achieve something, knowing that somebody will be there in case you fail, somebody will be there to hug you and cook you a nice meal.”
