Miami Swim Week 2018 was a memorable experience that attracted celebrity designers, fashion photographers and swimsuit lovers from all over the world. With events that took place at various oceanside hotels throughout the Magic City, the week of beach fashion appealed to local and global fashionistas.
The Summer Soiree by Ocean Drive Magazine was one of the highlights of Miami Swim Week 2018, and the intimate event was open to industry buyers, trendsetters and fashion photographers. The soiree featured a pop-up by the European Wax Center, a nail bar by Vanity Projects, a braid bar by Danny Jelaca, and a zen yoga session by SOL yoga. TThe event was held at the scenic Nautilus Hotel South Beach.
Courvoisier provided the cocktails, and Dr. Brandt kept guests hydrated with antioxidant water boosters.
One of the swimsuit designers featured at the event was Gabriela Pires, a native Brazilian whose passion for travel and fashion has defined her journey throughout numerous fashion capitals of the world, including New York City and Milan. Thanks to her cosmopolitan experiences, Gabriela has developed a unique sense of style that is clearly reflected in her Gabriela Pires Fashion Beachwear. Pastels, high cut styles, playful motifs and lace are some of the collection’s unique features. Gabriela experiments boldly with colors and ideas, and can customize all pieces, according to the clients’ taste and requirements in her Miami studio.
Gabriela’s sponsors included Rosset, Buri and Beach , COOLA and Bontá
