Wither the Bikinis? Australian Swim Fashion Week Drowns

If you love a Swim Week, set it free ...

Not so long ago, during that recently deceased time we now refer to as the "Luxury Era," Fashion Weeks sprang up everywhere, inviting both debutantes and Dubai oligarchs alike to follow a never-ending series of posh events with hot local designers, beautiful women, and free Bumble and Bumble products. Well, the dream is dead and, if you need proof, look to our Antipodean friends who have just seen their Australian Swim Fashion Week sink to the bottom. Canceled owing to a lack of financial backing, the death of this swimwear week begs the question: If Queensland, a place where women live cradle to grave in their beachside attire, can't survive, what will happen to Miami's bikini-heavy Fashion Week?
