On November 18, 2017, W Fort Lauderdale will debut ‘Art of Swim’ – an eclectic extravaganza celebrating the intersection of art and fashion poolside on the rooftop WET Deck. Fresh off a $55 million renovation, the world-class hotel has partnered with three emerging swimwear designers to showcase their collections with an artistic spin. The multi-faceted event begins at 7 PM and will include runway shows and curated presentations from local Fort Lauderdale fashion boutique, Jypsea Local, a showcase from 14-year old Miami prodigy Ariel Swedroe, and collections from Brazilian bikini extraordinaire, Lenny Niemeyer. In between shows, look out for the mermaids and fire breathers mingling throughout the WET Deck, pop up shops from the designers, cocktails courtesy of Oak & Cane, body casting by #1000Mermaids, and musical tunes provided by DJ La Trice Perry. VIP tickets start from $40, with the option to upgrade to daybed bottle service for 6 ($450).
