Starting on July 18, South Beach in Miami, FL. was overrun with fashion designers, lavish parties and swimwear presentations from Mercedes-Benz’ ninth Fashion Week Swim. Hosted at the Raleigh Hotel, participants were introduced to five days of designer runway shows highlighting the latest collection of suits with a kick-off event celebrating 25 years of ROXY with ROXY Pop Surf. Spinning the beats for the ROXY party was DJ Chelsea Leyland whose clients have included Chanel, Valentino, Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin and has opened for Santigold, Niki Minaj and Duran Duran.

Probably one of the most anticipated shows of the week, Mara Hoffman’s collection showcased with India-inspired elements. The effortless looks were filled with cartoon snakes, elephants and intricate hair adornments. Adding some color to the official Swim Week car, Hoffman also decorated the Benz in a never-before-seen print.
