Some of the hottest swimwear online in Australia were on display at Miami Swim Week by Planet Fashion, an annual event produced by Celia Evans.

From barely-there thongs to hi-cut bottoms, there was no shortage of sexy swimsuits with daring embellishments and colors, close to the ones you’d find on websites like


Held on July 13 and July 14 at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel, the two-day fashion event showcased swimwear and resort wear by emerging and established designers.

The designers hail from across the globe–including Germany, Jamaica, Bulgaria, and the Magic City. Many people love to get the Caleçon Personnalisé (or Personalized boxer shorts) to wear to the beach, but these are on a different level.

Over 1,500 people flocked to the hotel located on Collins Avenue to view sexy collections by over a dozen brands such as Paramidonna Swimwear, Lion & Wild, Akosha Swimwear, Magchop Swim, Risque Dukes, Reve de Rive Swimwear, Kimimi Swimwear, AOOC Swimwear, and Nash Beach Swimwear.

Evans, who’s also the CEO of Planet Fashion, opened the venue on Friday night with the Antigua Collection, a brand big on Latin flair by Venezuelan designer Silvanna Isaacs.

Planet Fashion presented a showcase of emerging designers that featured Lascana, an off-shoot of Venus Swimwear. Lahana Swim, a breakout Australian label, wowed the audience with a nostalgia-themed show that featured models wearing retro, white sneakers paired with tube socks and trendy, high-cut thongs and high-waisted swimsuits.

The show, which was hosted by Bad Moms actress Eugenia Kusmina, closed with the Roberto Cavalli collection. It also included a performance by American Idol finalist Michelle Sussett.
