As you've probably heard by now, next week's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim isn't open to the public. (We know, freakin' fashion elitists!) We'll be there to be your eyes and ears, and to fill you in on the latest in swimwear trends as well as any celebrities sightings. (Think Jon Gosselin will show his mug for the Ed Hardy show?) But if you'd like to get in on some fashion week action yourself, here's your chance to see designs by Diane von Furstenberg, Shoshanna (one-time girlfriend of Jerry Seinfeld), etc. -- no fame or press credentials necessary. This Sunday, the Swimwear Association of Florida hosts SwimShow, and gasp, the general public (that's you!) is actually welcomed. And if you'd like to see one of the largest and most comprehensive swimwear runway shows, all you have to do is ask ... literally. RSVP to Swimshow@feinbergpr.com, and you'll be able to get a taste of the 350 exhibitors showcasing their 2011 collections. Catch designs by DVF, Tibi, Shoshanna, Roidal, and Jets. They'll all be in Ballroom D at the Miami Beach Convention Center on July 18 at 6:30 pm. But RSVP soon as space is limited.
Sun., July 18, 6:30 p.m., 2010
