Swim Week ended a week ago but that hasn’t stopped the editors of L’Etage Magazine from talking about swimwear.
With over 300 brands presenting in swimwear, clothing, skincare and jewelry, the Cabana Show in Miami Beach was packed with designers, fashion spectators, bloggers and the media.
One of the largest offerings from Swim Week was the Cabana Show in Miami Beach that featured at least 240 swimwear brands.
Founded by Janet Wong and Sam Ben-Avraham, Cabana is the answer to the beachwear industry’s demand for a new trade show format. Cabana is a well-edited show that gives guests the opportunity to shop and socialize in an air-conditioned venue. Guests can even charge their phones at the ban.do iPhone Charging Stations scattered throughout the show.
Held between July 22 and 24 in the Tents in Collins Park, Swim Week didn’t let South Florida’s chaotic weather disrupt Cabana Show. Between hour long rain and humid, sunny weather, the biggest challenge was maintaining a fresh face in-between shows and viewings.
Luckily, the Glamsquad Refresh Station remained on stand-by to keep visitors shine-free and cool. You can even stock up on sunscreen at the Supergoop Station which included moisturizers, sunscreen, serums and BB cream to protect you from harmful UV rays. A coconut oil sampling station courtesy of Kopari was available for dry skin or hair.
The best part of the two-day affair were the amenities.
Guests sipped on tasty drinks such as coconut water by Coco & Co., South Indian iced coffee by Ministry of Kaapi and refreshing cocktails made of acai berry. More frozen goodies for the lush crowd were available in the form of mimosas, rose and frose by VINS Clementine de Provence.
Passion fruit slushies from Chinola and boozy slushies courtesy of Kelvin Slushy Co. were also on-hand.
Cabana Show attracted brands from across the globe including Australia, England and Brazil. Read the list below to find the perfect swimwear to don beach or poolside.
