History Of Miami Swim Week 

Miami Swim Week debuted in 1989 by Jimmy Woodman (founder of Swim Week was originally founded to coincide with Florida Sports Magazine. This event grew quickly and continued until 1998. 

1998 was the last show, but Swim Week was revived in 2005 largely because of  Miami Sports International. They happen to be a subsidiary of the Swim Gym Aquatics. This organization was led by Jonathan Strauss, who happened to be a fourth-year captain of the University of Florida Swim team.

During this time, the primary goal of Miami Swim Week was to introduce open-water swimming. This was organized by the H2O foundation, and their main objective was to help bring awareness to drownings occurring in South Flordia.  

Also, the founders dreamed of drawing more attention to aquatic sports and hoped to develop open-water swimming enough to be considered an Olympic event. This event became very popular for a short period of time. 

Past Olympians who took part in the swimming event include Tiffany Cohen, Robert Strauss, Nathan Adrian, Ed Moses, Anthony Ervin, Ricardo Moasterio, George Bovell, and Gary Hall.

As the years passed, Swim Week has been transformed into one of the largest fashion events. Designers from all around the world travel to Miami to be a part of Swim Week. Hundreds of brands present their best swimwear during runway shows all across Miami Beach.  

By 2004, IMG was providing all the glitz and glamour for swimwear on the runway at the Raleigh Hotel. This came to be known as Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim. This opened a world of celebrities, after-parties, designer dinner parties, sponsorships, and opportunities. 

Hotels jumped on board and began creating their own evening events to help entertain the elites who were attending the fashion show. Before long, all the trendy hotels in Miami were offering events that were scheduled around the IMG runway show itinerary. 

In 2015, IMG announced that they would not be returning to Miami Beach. This sent confusion and shock throughout the fashion industry. Swim Fashion Week and SwimMiami stepped in and developed a new runway show that launched in 2018. 

Popular labels including Mara Hoffman Swim, Roxy, Luli Dama, Wildfox Swim, Mikoh, Vix by Paula Hermanny, and Beach Bunny have graced the runway at Miami Swim Week. 

Through the years, Miami Swim Week has hosted thousands of designers, models, and industry leaders. This week is all about showcasing the best of the best. All brands place special attention on trends that are predicted for the swim industry. 

People from all over the world will fly into Miami to take part in this week-long celebration. It’s the perfect time to scope out this year's latest designs in swimwear while choosing what you will wear during all of your beach excursions.
