Mercedes-Benz taps Miami favorite designer Red Carter
Jul '08
Mercedes-Benz is returning to Miami to heat up summer with Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim. July 17th to July 21st, the historic Raleigh Hotel will host 15 of the hottest swimwear designers including Red Carter, Poko Pano, Hotel Bondi Swimwear, Syla by Sylvie Cachay, Ed Hardy Swimwear, TIBI, Pistol Panties and Custo Barcelona.

Mercedes-Benz has tapped Miami favorite Red Carter as this year's Mercedes-Benz Presents Designer for Swim 2009. The Red Carter line launched in 2004, soon after the designer moved Miami and became inspired by the ever-present energy and bold, Art Deco style.

The Red Carter collection incorporates fit, form and function, combining subtle details, bold prints, and advanced technical constructions often neglected by swimwear designers. The 2009 Collection will debut July 19 at 10:00 PM at Cabana Grande at The Raleigh Hotel.

Beyond the runway, the place to see and be seen at the Raleigh Hotel is the invite-only Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge, where celebrities, tastemakers and top editors relax between shows.

The lounge will host a series of chic-invite only events celebrating the best the week has to offer. Festivities continue poolside where Mercedes-Benz invites guests to enjoy a beauty retreat in the private cabanas along the iconic Raleigh pool.

What better way to soak in Miami and do it in style than driving a new Mercedes-Benz? Take a ride in the SLK, SLR Roadster, C63 AMG or the restyled SL Roadster for 2009, all of which will be on display around the Raleigh Hotel.

Mercedes-Benz's well-built machines boast outstanding strength, quality and class and have been consistently recognized as style icons.

For a city that loves to drop the top and cruise around South Beach, Mercedes-Benz will also display its all new SL63 AMG roadster with a hand-built AMG 6.3-liter V-8 engine that produces 518 horsepower. There is no better time to drop the top and truly enjoy the ride.

Online, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Newsgroup continues to house press information and complimentary, high-resolution photography from all three Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week venues in the United States (including New York, Los Angeles at Smashbox Studios, and Miami/Swim).

During the Swim Collections the Newsgroup will update regularly, offering photography from both the runway and throughout the tents shot by the incomparable Dan Lecca photographers. Once the shows have concluded, images from each season will remain available at the Newsgroup's archive.
