The under-fed models, the over-the-top swimsuits, the sweltering shows at The Raleigh — yes, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim is upon us. And we Miami Fashion Bloggers had the absolute pleasure of being photographed by the zany Mayleen Gonzalez of Photo Boutique for Escape Miami Style Lounge. Hosted by the Sagamore, Peroni Italy and Annie Vazquez, here’s the 411 on the free (yay!) and open-to-the-public party. I hope to see you there!

WHO: Escape Miami Style Lounge

WHAT: Sagamore, The Art Hotel transforms its usual artistic ambiance into a curated fashion and beauty lounge for Miami’s most anticipated week of the summer – Fashion Week Swim 2013. Escape Miami Style Lounge is a style retreat like no other where Miami Swim Week VIPs can take a break in between shows, to lounge in a relaxing and fun atmosphere. Guests will have the chance to receive complimentary spa and beauty treatments, peruse the latest in men and women’s apparel & accessories, take part in unique activations like a DIY jewelry table and enjoy informal modeling presentations. Plus, there will be a tan touch up bar, a pro stylist offering complimentary consultations and a street style wall where you can get your photo snapped and posted up to be part of a giant collage. A special media nook will give bloggers, journalists and photographers their own private area to unwind and work. Lastly, Escape Miami has also teamed up with 30 of Miami’s top fashion bloggers to present the first-ever Swim Week street style photo installation called “Summer Crush” which will be on display. 

WHEN: Saturday, July 20 from noon to 5 p.m.
