It has been years since I attended Miami Swim. Not since my days as a producer did I feel it was important for me to have a presence there. Yes, we have featured loungewear, swimwear in the pages of World Bride Magazine. After all, you guys have to wear something when you travel to the exotic places that require you to wear chic clothing.
So this season we decided to attend the shows and see what has changed and will be trending for all your honeymoon needs. I had mixed feelings. I loved the diversity in skin tones, sizes and they showed great fashion for both men and women. But overall the collections were wonderful and worth the trip. So sit back, grab a cocktail and enjoy the view.
The brand opened a pop up shop on Lincoln Road Mall to celebrate their Miami Swim Week debut at 1655 Meridian Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139. The pop up will be open through July 31 with both collections available for purchase.

The mission of Abyss by Abby is to empower and elevate women. I want women to stand out and carry themselves with the confidence they deserve. Women do not need to apologize for being the center attention, or wearing something that makes them stand out. If you’re not comfortable with a strong woman wearing an eye-catching dress, that’s your problem. “Women are goddesses and every goddess needs a god-like dress,” Abby said.
