Very slow Monday, but to our surprise, we had a representative from InStyle Magazine visit our booths and had the chance to chat with her for a few minutes.  How fast time goes, as tomorrow is the last day of SwimShow.  But still we had a great time with our funny French neighbors from Pull In Underwear.

Surprisingly, we had a great turnout on this sunny Sunday! So many potential buyers came knocking for a look-see and to check us out.  And we were happy to please.  All the way from Greenwich, Connecticut to Canada and Panama, Buyers were smitten by the delicacy and great craftsmanship found in our client’s lines.  We had the pleasure to have a Teen Vogue fashion market editor on site, ohhh la la!

After a long day of millions of hellos, we moved down to the gritty and tough part of the day, but somebody had to do it! The SwimShow Fashion Show!! Yes, one of our client walked down the runway in the astonishing Guilt. And guilty we were, of wanting every single suit that came down the catwalk, we were simply elated and flabbergasted at seeing so many great designs!

Read all about it, Mandrake PR at the Miami SwimShow 2011.  What a great experience this has been, but let’s go back to the first official day of the show.  SwimShow 2011 opened with a bang, not only because it united over 150 international swimsuits lines and beachwear under one roof, but also because it gives the opportunity for so many new designers to showcase their designs in a major way.  We were located next to the ever kinky Frederick’s of Hollywood and True Religion.  After meet and greets with not only Sports Illustrated Magazine, who simply loved a variety of our wonderful suits, but with a couple of dozens of potential buyers, we were so ecstatic but tired as well.

That was not the end of it, the wonderful people from the Swimwear Association of Florida hosted cocktails and hors d’ oeuvres at the Savoy Hotel, where we were able to mingle with so many great people.  And if that wasn’t enough, we headed afterwards to dine at ever chic, Mr. Chow at the W Hotel.  Holy Cow, what a long day!

SwimShow, here is Mandrake PR!

And the day is here! SwimShow 2011 was upon us and we were ready.  We actually build both booths from the ground up… well not from the ground up, but we did almost everything else.  Hours and hours after deciding in color schemes and designs, here it is, our client’s  SwimShow booths; and  they looked great.  Here are some images of our whole experience, starting from wall decoration to furniture selection and finally setting up the whole Spring/Summer collection.  Just take a glimpse and give us your comments!

And we couldn’t forget one of our team member’s B-day! Jenny Lewis’ special day was celebrated in a great and fabulous way that only Mandrake PR knows how, at Carpaccio at the wonderful Bal Harbour Shops.
