Swim Week Recap

Swim Week Recap

Posted by on

This swim week was off. the. charts. and we can't wait to fill you in on all the happenings. This year, we partnered with The Plymouth and Boulan - our home away from home to create an unforgettable experience, with purpose!

Tuesday 

We started the week off strong with a beach clean up in partnership with Art Loves Earth. #ModelsAgainstBottles rounded up on Miami Beach bright and early to get in on the movement and play their part. 
 
 

Wednesday 

Art Loves Earth activities continued early Wednesday morning where we gathered all the girls for a #ModelsAgainstBottles campaign shoot by VRTU. The babes walked on the beach in the latest of sustainable swimwear by ISHINE365 The Label - how good do these combos look? 
Later, we joined the crew for a pre-screening dinner of the Flash Forward documentary - a short film by Art Loves Earth x VRTU. 

Thursday

Time to reset, recharge and relax. The festivities are nowhere near over at this point. Thursday we set off to our annual Maham Hip Hop Yoga Retreat at The Rockstar Energy Mansion. Sounds cool? It was very. 
Flow started promptly at 11 AM led by Skylar of @mahamyoga, girls stuck around later for cryofacials by ResetFML, Rockstar Energy and CBD goodies were handed by Physician's Preferred CBD. Pop-ups by ishine365 and Stitched Life were also held for quick shopping for the days ahead. 

Friday

The day we've been prepping for finally came and it went so quick. Model fittings wouldn't have been possible without stylist of the year @Dnabydani x @danialliforjewelbox who helped us piece together all the looks for our vision.

Hair and make-up was a party in and of itself set in the two bedroom terrace suite of The Plymouth overlooking the pool with a DJ. The girls hung out inside while @V3.XVII did his thing painting a mural in the background. 
 
Lights dropped, the alarm went off and our lifeguard caught everyone's attention for the start of the show.
An intro of Message in a bottle brought out the girls and set the mood for a playlist of classic rock hits and spunky babes sending out the message - Save Our Seas.
  
With some of our favorite girls including Amanda Steele, Erika Costell, power sister duo Faith & Cambrie Schroder, and Yovanna Ventura - the walks and looks were flawless and more than we could have ever expected. We could not be happier with the turn out. 
The best of Miami and more showed, including a special appearance by Anastasia Ashley. The party was an absolute hit, maxing out capacity at The Plymouth Hotel.  

Sunday

We lack the words to describe this jaw dropping experience, the best of the best rolled through including celebrity and top influencer appearances by Tyson Beckford, Casi Davis, and Katya Elise Henry.
Partnering with Sountuary to launch our @YoVentura x ISHINE365 collaboration, we chose the upcoming restaurant at Boulan for our location. Decked with tribal vibes, afro-Cuban beats, flame throwers and more, this was a sensory experience not to be missed.

Smoke shows Stefanie Knight, Mya Copeland, and Yovanna Ventura.

The sultry line was composed of killer metallics, wild prints and punchy solid hues to die for.

The girls worked their magic down the decorated runway over the fountain in the courtyard, covered in glitz and glam by @Atmabeauty and body jewels by @Begoldish.
 
The show closed with the beauties jamming on the runway and with the crowd, per usual ISHINE365 fashion. The crowd stuck around later for after-show vibes, tunes and drinks provided by @Cervpresidente
It was a killer year and we're so excited for what's to come next year, we've already got some ideas brewin' - stay tuned!
