Swim Week Miami 2013: Eight Best Parties

Models and bottles, y'all!

If there is any week out of the year when that statement rings truer, it's the awkwardly named Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, AKA Swim Week.

While most of the official and satellite events are happening around the Raleigh, Soho Beach House, and the Miami Beach Convention Center, everyone knows Miami excels at the afterparty. And there's definitely no shortage this weekend. Some will be easier to get into than others, but trying to cross the velvet ropes is half the fun.

Check out Crossfade's eight best Swim Week parties.
