Funkshion Productions is excited to announce that Swim Fashion Week will once again heat up Miami Beach from July 13 – 17, 2016. A year after taking over the production of the hottest swimwear shows, Funkshion continues to present the exclusive tent venue of the runway shows for swim week.
“This season is especially important as we evolve Swim Fashion Week to showcase the brightest talent in the industry today,” said Sale Stojanovic, partner and co-founder of Funkshion Productions. “Designers from all over the globe are choosing to showcase their brands in Miami Beach because of the growth of the trade shows and media focus. That has inspired us to innovate and offer the most creative options for the brands to tell their stories. This is the future of the industry and we are thrilled to be able to continue to bring the energy and excitement back another year.”
FUNKSHION: Fashion Week Miami Beach is a four day/evening long event that provides an intelligent, innovative platform for progressive, established, and emerging designers to showcase their collections to media, celebrities, international buyers, and select style makers. The shows are geared towards designer diffusion collections and innovative lifestyle brands.
