May 12, 2015

IMG last week announced that it has canceled this year’s SwimWeek in July. The company plans to redesign the event for 2016.

IMG's official statement reads: "As part of IMG’s ongoing evolution of its fashion events business, the company is redesigning SwimWeek to create a modern offering that better reflects the unique needs of its designers and partners. To best execute a change of this scale, IMG today announced it will postpone its July 2015 SwimWeek event in Miami, FL until 2016. IMG will unveil its new plans for SwimWeek in the near future."
The restructuring announcement follows IMG’s recent announcement of the new New York Fashion Week venues. The company was forced to find a new venue for NYFW after its five-year lease on Lincoln Center was lost. Two Skylight Group locations—Skylight at Moynihan Station and Skylight Clarkson Sq.—were named as the homes for NYFW as of this September.

The swimwear trade shows will continue from July 18th to the 20th despite the absence of SwimWeek this year, and Funkshion Fashion Week Swim will take place from July 15th through the 20th.
