Runway and model photos from the Wildfox Swimwear collection at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim by Fashion Photographer James Santiago.
WILDFOX COUTURE is an American vintage-inspired women’s knitwear brand. Combining great style and unsurpassed quality, Wildfox quickly gained a following amongst celebrities, trendsetters, and top retailers worldwide. Childhood friends Emily Faulstich and Kimberley Gordon are the creative force behind Wildfox. Inspired by sleepovers, beautiful books, fairies, dreams, vintage t-shirts, and above all, their friendship, the young designers gave birth to a brand based on love and having fun with your best friends! Wildfox is for the dreamers, for the lovers, for skinny dippers, for barefoot explorers, for late night chocolate eaters; it is for people everywhere who believe in love and believe in themselves.
It’s only natural that Miami, a place with summer all year around, would be the ideal choice for the swimsuit industry’s biggest event of the year. All the major labels come out to play and young up-and-coming designers vie for a spot to get their suits into the eyes of the fashion elite. Nearly fifty designers show off their latest and greatest in the Mercedes-Benz tents alone. Across the city dozens of designers participate in satellite events that are organized by independent organizations.
Like any fashion event, it’s just as much about the parties and sponsorships, the red carpet and the street style as it is the main event. Miami Beach’s club, venues and hip eateries are packed with the jet-set crew of models, editors, photographers, writers and designers.
