There’s an interesting development in the region, and we’re loving the look of it. On the fashion radar is the upcoming International Swim Fashion Week slated for February 19-22, at the breathtaking Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort in the beautiful Dutch Caribbean island of Curacao. The event is the first swim showcase of its kind in the Caribbean, setting the bar high with promises to provide fabulous swimwear, entertainment and a taste of luxury vis-a-vis the venue’s private beach, top-class spa and other premium amenities.

‘Swim’ affords the opportunity to rub shoulders with industry insiders, stylists and top designers while feasting eyes on resort-chic looks presented by the likes of AquaVita (Curacao), Island State (Australia), Sirenes de Soleil (NYC), Julia Pereira by Lybethras (Brazil), Phax (Colombia) and more first-rate swimwear designers.

Interested? So are we. Check out the packages, buy your tickets here, and treat yourself to almost a week of shows and fabulous events. The series begins with an exclusive VIP Kick-off Party, so we highly recommend that you not only enjoy the parties, but also make it an equal opportunity to familiarize yourself with the scenic loveliness that abounds in Curacao. Come a few days early, and you can even catch the tail end of Curacao Carnival, which culminates Feb. 17.
