If you want to know where to find swim suits, it's not at the local bikini shop. Well at least if you don't want to look like everyone else on the beach who shopped there. The true Mecca of the hottest swim is Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Miami Swim 2010.
This annual event takes place every July in Miami Beach and is basically a convention with fashion shows for buyers to pick all their favorites for stores around the world. I would know of course as this is certainly something for models to be booked on and a good place to make a buck or two. Now, do you have an Amex card? Better yet a Gold, Platinum or Centurion Card? Well, the fashion acceptable card company is offering those cardholders a package to attend exclusive runway shows at Miami Swim 2010 from designers such as True Religion Swim, Ed Hardy Swimwear, Tibi and more. Once you purchase the package, you're off to meet and greet with designers and enjoy great deals for dining and your stay. You also get a ticket into the official opening party and the industry-only after party, which are sure to be filled with bikini babes and celebrities.
American Express has paired up with the Raleigh Hotel on Collins Ave - the uber art deco spot (don't worry, they have a spa) that has the true South Beach feel. You will also have a poolside cabana at the hotel and access to the VIP Green Room. Besides the free valet parking and gift bag - how can you really go wrong? Plus Amex is donating $250,000 from the sales of these tickets to the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund to help emerging designers reach success! Go to AmericanExpress.com and buy your ticket now, it's $75 for all the VIP access. Of course, you'll have to buy your plane ticket and hotel room as well. The event takes place from July 15th through the 19th and it's going to be hot - literally!
