Swim wear fashion shows, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2013, the SwimShow & LingerieShow and FUNKSHION: SWIM take over the city in July bringing hot, steamy and stunning with them, and we don't mean the weather. Some of the most beautiful and handsome models in the world will sashay down the runway and put on unforgettable shows at The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, which runs from July 18-22 with main stages inside the pop-up Oasis and Cabaña Grande luxe-tents at the Raleigh hotel; the SwimShow & LingerieShow at the Miami Beach Convention Center from July 20-23 and the FUNKSHION: SWIM shows at the upscale SLS Hotel South Beach and Soho Beach House from July 16-21.

Funded in part by the MBVCA, the show, in its 31st year, will offer buyers and consumers a large-scale, high-profile presence at Swim Week, apart from the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim shows.
