Day Two in the Mercedes-Benz “Haute Seat” was a wet one. While Saturday was bright and breezy, Miami’s oh-so-unpredictable weather kicked in and delivered hours of torrential storms. But although the rain did present a bit of a challenge, we were still able to chat up the King of Swim, Red Carter, in the back of the Benz while he shared exciting news about an upcoming outerwear collection. We also got a chance to hang with the girls from Lee + Lani, Lisa Marie and Alana, whose career as models themselves has helped shape their stellar swimwear collection.
The rest of the day included a private presentation of BCBGeneration swimwear, a one-on-one preview with Gottex designer Molly Grad, front row seats to the L*Space by Monica Wise show and a backstage interview with designer Luli Fama. To close the day, Haute Living’s contributing writer and friend Angela Simmons interviewed sister and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim designer Vanessa Simmons for Haute TV during her first-ever swim presentation. Stay tuned to watch this and so much more from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, and until then, here’s our day in pictures:
