Nu Wave Swim’s Sustainable Debut at Miami Swim Week

The brand will support this year’s Swim Week with an eco-friendly edge

The annual swimwear celebration dubbed Miami Swim Week will kick off on July 11, welcoming guests to enjoy an eco-friendly tropical oasis at the Miami Botanical Garden. The multi-day experience will showcase notable brands and emerging designers such as Vitamin A, Tori Praver, Parke & Ronen and Bleu Rod Beattie.

From July 11 to 14, designers and brands will be offered presentation packages from Nu Wave Swim and given access to editors, buyers, influencers and socials. The swimwear brand is led by partners Seth Browarnik and Michele Addison, who both believe sustainability in the swimwear industry is crucial. “Being sustainable and making best efforts to use eco-friendly fabrics along with supporting efforts to keep oceans clean directly affects the swim industry,” explains Addison.

The celebration begins on July 11 with Nu Wave’s opening night party followed by days of fashion presentations, wellness activations, and a closing party on the last day. Guests will have the opportunity to look at new designs while learning more about sustainability in the swimwear industry. “It’s about rethinking plastic usage while experiencing an elevated swim activation,” says Browarnik.

A plastic-free policy is just one of the standards being set at the oasis and other brands and designers are encouraged to reach the same goal. Browarnik says he wants the grounds to be completely free of plastic which means, “having all sponsors and partners limit the amounts they use as well for a larger impact.”

To strengthen their passion for ocean conservation, Nu Wave Swim is also collaborating with Facebook and Instagram to promote and advocate for clean water. Many sponsors such as Miami HEAT, Heineken, and Swim Show will be supporting Nu Wave Swim’s debut at this year’s Miami Swim Week.
