Designers sent models down the runway in vibrant, retro-inspired swimwear. Hot trends included high-waisted bottoms, metallic colors, shoulder-accented tops, geometric and floral prints.


Project Ethos Alum AmbiKa Sanjana (Bika) was all over Miami Swim Week with her sexy line of swimwear featuring unique embellishments including tassels and just the right amount of bling along with her signature peacock feather design.
