The show typically debuts mid-July in Miami, spanning different venues throughout the city, showcasing the swimwear industry’s most coveted new collections. This is significant not only for Miami but the U.S. and fashion industry as a whole because it will serve as the first physical fashion event in the country after reopening.

With the blessing from the City of Miami Beach, the show will move forward with new and improved guidelines that include following CDC and social distancing protocols. For the first time ever, the show will be produced and live-streamed so that those who are not physically able to attend can still be part of the experience. For in-person attendance, swimwear enthusiasts must RSVP to specific events, all based on capacity and the venue’s ability to ensure that social distancing rules are enforced.

The show will partner again with leading industry names including Beach Bunny, Acacia, Vitamin A Swim, Luli Fama, Agua Bendita, Maaji and Verde Limón. New to this year’s show will be the partnership with technology company, theCxn, which will allow PARAISO to take the show to the next level with new virtual showrooms and live streaming capabilities, allowing everyone to interact with the swimwear collections and the shows in a visually immersive way—no matter where in the world they may be. Retailers will have the opportunity to schedule virtual appointments and shop from curated collection videos, allowing the retailers and the buyers to connect without having to physically be in the same place.

“We are fortunate that Florida is reopening much more quickly than expected, making it possible for us to hold Paraiso Miami Beach just a month away from the originally scheduled dates,” said Natalija Dedic Stojanovic, Creative Director of PARAISO Miami Beach. “We understand the priorities and challenges that brands are facing at the moment. The fundamental platforms that need to be reactivated for the fast recovery of the fashion system as a whole are trade and marketing platforms.”
