The world wide Mercedes Benz Fashion Week has arrived and Miami Swim officially starts today but I received an invite for a pre-party event which took place last night at club LIV in the historic Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel. First off the Fountainebleu is a historical and architectural icon built in 1954 designed by Morris Lapidus as the most luxurious hotel on Miami Beach. Just recently in 2008 following a $1 billion dollar renovation it reopened to be even more glamorous and luxurious than ever. How could anyone possibly turn down an invite?  So of course I was going and absolutely had to bring along my most fashion forward friend, Farah the stylist.

Club LIV a two story night club pulsating with neon lights, vibrating with a pop 80’s music set by DJ 360 made a fun and fabulous setting for the fashion show.   There were sugary sweet drinks from Coco Breve and Cointreau to loosen up the stiff bodies standing around like they didn’t know how to act at a nightclub.  As you can tell from the photos we don’t have those issues.  We were steadily dancing throughout the night and enjoying a great performance from the group Hulture Shock. Those peeps can sing.

The fashion show was no disappointment.  Gorgeous, hard bodied beauties sashayed across the runway wearing the latest styles from designers Aquarius, Bikini Flavors, Edward Beiner eye wear, Perry Ellis, etc.  They were all beautiful but the boys got more cheers from the Miami Fashion minded crowd.  The newest designer trend are bright bold neon colors.  We saw hats, wraps and shades but my favorite piece of the entire show was a pink neon fringed bikini top.

I wore my hair in a bouffant, make up by Estee Lauder, retro animal print dress from Dillards and vintage art deco jade jewelry. For more info on Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week you can check out the #Splashion hashtag on twitter.
