It's Bikini Time In Miami! Two Swim Fashion Events Are Turning Heads This Week

This is Louis' favorite time of the year. That's because Miami is full of models in bikinis. First, Miami Swim Week, then Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim.

Here's a preview of what you can see in both.

Lila Nikole swimwear is ready for Miami Swim Week,

"This year we're showing my 2015 collection," Nikole said. "It's called Reflections, and the reason behind the name is, we did some interesting prints that are mirrored. There's some trippy concepts and designs, and in life I've been going through some reflections in terms of changing anything, so I wanted to translate it into art."

The collection features neons, reversed flower-prints and kaleidoscope patterns, and Lila's designs aren't just teeny-tiny bikinis.

"For this collection I made sure to reach a lot further and to try and put pieces together that cater to ever woman, cause my clientele keeps changing," Nikole said. "So we have, like, long sleeves, scuba tops, rash guards, shorts, full bottoms, boy shorts, like tiny, tiny, little bikinis. I pushed it a lot further this time."

On Monday, the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week will welcome Colombian designer Liliana Montoya.

"We will be presenting for the first time, debuting at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, July 21 at 8 p.m. at the Raleigh Hotel Cabana Grande," Montoya said.

The show promises to have a lot of beauty.

"We're gonna be featuring our gorgeous mermaids," Montoya said. "They're gonna be walking down the stage. Around 50 beautiful models from all around the world will be portraying our creations."

And the bikinis are nice, too.

"First of all, we're gonna see a lot of gold. The gold comes in metallic and shiny colors," she said.

Also, a lot of playful ruffles and lace to create a romantic look. Just another thing to look forward to.

"It's so much adrenaline that you go for just like 20 minutes, but it's so worth it," Montoya said. It's lots of sweating, lots of nights without sleeping, but it's a full week full of dreams, and that's what I like about Swim Week in Miami."
