It’s That Time of Year Again: Miami Swim Week 2013

Looks like it’s about that time of year again, ladies and gents. That’s right—Miami Swim Week, a subsidiary of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, is back in full force and preparing to take South Beach by storm.

So, what does this mean for the citizens of Miami and its surrounding areas? Get ready to be overrun by bikini-clad models for the next week, and lots of them. The hot kind—not the 1990’s strung out kind.

Taking place from July 19-23, all of the official Swim Week events will be held at The Raleigh Hotel on 17th and Collins. Unfortunately for the average Miamian, however, all of these are private and invite only. Tear.

Even so, if you’re determined to see some live models in action, try hanging around the Mondrian on West Ave for a bit (just dress in all white and you’ll fit right in), or hit up the few events that are open to the public, including “Fashion’s Fight” at Highbar on the 21st, or Haven Lounge’s Swim Week Finale on the 23rd. If that still doesn’t work, there’s always Youtube.
