For the second year in a row, Art Hearts Fashion hosted six days of fashion for LA Swim Week before heading to its shows in Miami.

One of the LA-based designers that has showed on the Art Hearts runway is Natalia Fedner, landing a cover this year for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.

Other big names that took the stage at LA Swim Week included Nike, and guests enjoyed a grand finale by Michael Costello x REVOLVE. Additional California designers and brands include Alexis Monsanto, Chaser, Cross Colours, Gyv Me Body, Henri Costa, Kentaro Kameyama, Liverpool, Milla Stone, Mister Triple X, Sugarpuss Swim, Saltwater Luxe and Tell the Truth. Designs from Baltimore’s Bishme Cromartie and Lybethras from Brazil will also be featured during the show.

“International brands coming to L.A. to do an L.A. swim week means we’re elevating the bar because we were able to get them to come all the way here to support a swim week,” Rosete said to the California Apparel News. “We’ve been getting so much love. The big Michael Costello and Revolve finale showed our growth.” Erik Rosete of Art Hearts has helped put LA’s fashion week scene on the map with bi-annual show for spring and fall fashion weeks.

LA Swim Week was in collaboration with Fashion Tech Works and the New Mart building in downtown Los Angeles. Here’s to another great year!
