"Back in May, we held our first-ever open casting call to find the next big star. After receiving thousands of Instagram submissions from women around the world, we invited 35 lucky ladies to SI's Brooklyn offices for an in-person interview and photo shoot. From there, it wasn't easy, but we narrowed down the list to these 15, who will continue to make waves as they walk the runway in SI's first branded swimwear show.
"SI Swimsuit has teamed up with RAJ Swim to create an exclusive new collection of swimwear and active apparel. The collection will debut in 2018 nd cater to 'all types of women.'”

The 5th annual, ESCAPE Miami Style Lounge, is back. This year the acclaimed fashion and beauty retreat which takes place from (12pm to 5pm) at the Shelborne Hotel has curated the quintessential "Summer Party" for both guys and gals where you can unwind in between Swim Week shows with complimentary pampering treatments, libations and bask in an array of activities.
Founded by Janet Wong and Sam Ben-Avraham, Cabana was created to answer the beachwear industry’s call for a new trade show format. As retailers, it was clear for the duo to identify what the industry needed – a well-edited show with a sense of discovery and a refreshing, inspiring environment to shop in.
The show environment is inspired by the best beach resorts around the world from Tulum, to Cote de'Azur, to Ibiza. While inspiration is an important aspect, comfort is also at the top of the list. Cabana is a place where brands and buyers can do business but also reunite and relax. Service is taken into consideration in all aspects of the show whether it’s golf carts between venues, creative food options, or a personalized bracelet instead of a badge as you enter the show – at Cabana it’s all in the details.
