Social Styles Swim Week 2014 Part One
In South Florida, the name Elysze Held is synonymous with style. As founder and president of the Miami fashion/image consulting firm, Style Out of the City, Elysze is the personal stylist to WSVN 7/Deco Drive’s hosts, Lynn Martinez & Louis Aguirre and has dressed CEO’s, models, super-models, celebrities, socialites & fashionistas! Elysze frequently commutes to New York, is a field producer for Mercedes Benz New York Fashion week, and styles national advertising campaigns. With her stylist’s eye, she lets us know WHO WORE WHAT to WHERE!
Neither torrential rains nor the flooded streets in South Beach kept the crowd and SocialMiami’s fashion contributor, Stylist Elysze Held from the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week SWIM Official Kick Off Party at the Raleigh Hotel! The Roxy Pop Surf Runway show rocked and the After Party in the Oasis tent on the Raleigh Hotel grounds sizzled. Then it was onto Ocean Drive Magazine’s magical Opening Swim edition event at the Surfcomber Hotel. Friday evening’s whirl included Street Style from Aqua Bendita, Barely There at Poko Pano, Drama at Dolores Cortés and Colorful Graphics from Suboo; then onto dinner at the Delano with the gorgeous Designer Duo, sisters Kalani & Oleema Miller of MIKOH SWIMWEAR.
But sexy swimwear wasn’t the only thing ready for the runway at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2014. The hot Mercedes Cabriolet made waves poolside at The Raleigh wrapped in an exclusive print from Mara Hoffman’s 2014 Resort Collection.
Black & White remains the dominant fashion influence on South Beach Style! White on white, and pops of color were seen at all the shows, on the runway and poolside.
