Starting July 15, SI Swimsuit will host a VIP party to welcome everyone to the aqua-tastic week. The next morning, Sweat With SI Swimsuit — which will include a workout led by SI models — will be held at the W Hotel South Beach. Throughout the day, the SI Swim Bungalow will be open at W Hotel South Beach pool, with interactive brand activations and activities hosted and curated by SI Swimsuit models.

But, of course, the main event will be the iconic runway show showcasing a diverse group of women such as models Brooks Nader and Camille Kostek; rookies Christen Harper, Katie Austin and Olivia Ponton; influencers and Swim Search finalists. (And watch out for some special guests!) For the first time this year, Swim Search finalists were selected through not just one but two open virtual castings. The first group of finalists were selected exclusively through the SI Swimsuit app, with the second round of submissions opening via TikTok. Finalists will be announced online and on social media prior to their runway show debut. Keep your eyes peeled for Swim Search finalists Manju, Ashley Byrd, Mady Dewey, Shannon Burton, Janell Williams and Joely Live.

Make sure to follow along in the app and online for the latest Swim Search announcements, including exclusive access to the Miami Swim Week event.
