Hi Larry,

Hope you are well!

Everything But Water, the largest swim and resortwear specialty retailer in the US with over 72 stores nationwide, is giving consumers an insider’s look and front row seat to Miami Swim Week for the first time this year. Everything But Water has teamed up with Mara Hoffman, L*SPACE, Luli Fama and ViX swimwear to live stream the shows on its website,everythingbutwater.com, and is giving customers the opportunity to pre-order from the unedited Resort 2014 runways for 48 hours after the shows.

Everything But Water is the first swim specialty store to bring this innovation to their customers and is one of the first retailers and brands to innovate at Miami Swim Week. Miami Swim Week happens right during the height of the current swim season when consumers are thinking about swim, but has been looked at like an afterthought compared to the international fashion weeks. Everything But Water will provide unparalleled access for their consumers for the first time so they have the opportunity to interact with the product firsthand.

Additionally, customer picks during the live streamed shows will play an integral role in what the Everything But Water buying team will stock for Resort 2014 as they will have direct feedback from the customer for the first time ever before the buying season closes. This experience will make the buying process a two-way street.

I’d to work with you about a news piece on this story leading up to Miami Swim Week. Please see below for more information and some graphics that will hit Everything But Water’s website leading up to the event. We can also coordinate for you to speak with the designers involved for this inaugural season of live streaming.

Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!
