Fashionistas were more than a little worried when Mercedes-Benz pulled their sponsorship of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim at The Raleigh. Well, the show(s) will go on, albeit a little more scattered via a number of luxurious venues such as The Delano, Casa Casaurina and the W South Beach. There will be tents too, put with the help of Funkshion production and LDJ Productions showing a full roster of real shows available to those on the list. Miami Swim Week is on!
