PARAISO Miami Beach Returns With In-Person Events

After hosting virtual shows for over a year, PARAISO Miami Beach is back with a full slate of in-person events to highlight the swimwear industry. Four days of live events will begin July 8 and last through July 11, with over 30 swimwear brands hosting in-person runway shows, social events and brand activations.

“Since its inception, the focus of PARAISO Miami Beach has been the growth of the swimwear, beachwear and resort wear industry,” says Natalija Dedic Stojanovic, co-founder of PARAISO Miami Beach. “Bringing the in-person platform back to life is critical to rebuilding the fashion economy after the pandemic.”

Touting itself as the first global fashion organization to return to full attendance of live fashion shows, PARAISO Miami Beach will feature many name brands in the swimwear industry, including Boohoo & Pretty Little Things, Jonathan Simkhai & Maaji, as well as emerging brands like Nalu Swim and Honey Birdette. Designers featured will include Segunda Mano, Bfyne x Models of Color Matter, Simonett, Oh Polly, Leimakani, Life by Style Swimwear Collective: Megan Mae Swimwear and Rosewater Swimwear, Luli Fama and Sports Illustrated, to name a few.

PARAISO Miami Beach’s main runway shows and events will be held under its tent at Collins Park in Miami Beach and The Ritz-Carlton South Beach, with satellite events at Plymouth Miami Beach, MILA, Joia Beach Club and Mondrian South Beach.

With the pandemic changing everyday life, including how consumers shop, the events will also delve into how the direct-to-consumer model works, new business strategies to implement, and building a solid e-commerce platform that can enhance a brand’s growth.

A runway show featuring the 2021 issue of Sport Illustrated is open to the public at 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 10 at the Baia Beach Club, 1100 West Ave. in Miami Beach. To RSVP, email BaiabeachclubRSVP@purplepr.com and for waterfront bungalow reservations, email poolreservations@baiabeachclubmiami.com.

While many events are closed to the public, all PARAISO Miami Beach runway shows will also be live-streamed on its website. For more information, visit Paraisomiamibeach.com.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
