DELYX had the privilege of being featured in DC Swim Week 2019! This whirlwind of a weekend brought together the most elite swimwear designers from across the world to our nation’s capital for three days full of fashion.
We gathered in the heart of DC at the Embassy of Italy, a beautiful venue that provided a picturesque background to the luxurious collections parading on stage.
There were two nights of runway shows, the first night (The Resort Collection Show) included swim, activewear, lingerie, and accessories, while the second night (Genesis Swimwear Show) was exclusively dedicated to luxury boutique swim lines.
DELYX took the runway on night two, alongside household names like Red Carter, Banana Moon and Jessica Simpson. Between both shows, there were over 500 in attendance.
We had the opportunity to showcase some of the designs from our NEW collection, which will be released in 2020. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s coming:
A local celebrity hosted the show – Dr. Renee Allen is a well-known TV and radio personality throughout the DC/Maryland/Virginia area. There were also a few of DC’s hottest restaurants on hand showcasing their best dishes, along with several media outlets, bloggers, and other well known attendees like Charisse Jackson Jordan of the Real Housewives of Potomac.
While in DC, we were also selected to be a part of Fox 5’s Good Day DC segment on the event. Out of the 30 designers that participated in DC Swim Week, DELYX was selected to be one of the only five featured lines on the show! It was there that we debuted our Owen Peplum suit, which will be a part of our upcoming 2020 collection!

We concluded the week with a pop up shop, where 37 vendors and designers gathered for an entire day to collaborate, network and introduce their designs to the public.
We would like to extend a big thank you to DC Swim Week’s many sponsors: VIGA Italia, Balmain Paris, Inglot, Peroni Italy and the MAKE Offices. We would also like to thank our stunning models and stylists Nikki Fiveash and Azel Vasquez. Finally, a huge thank you to DC Swim Week’s founder, Moh Ducis. Without your vision and careful planning, none of this would have been possible!
