Style Saves at Miami Swim Week

(WSVN) - With Miami Swim Week kicking off tomorrow, lots of swimwear events are happening all over town. One event is more about charity than fashion, and Deco was at their model casting call at the Setai Hotel on Sobe.

These models are exercising their rights to bare arms, stomachs and legs, all in the name of charity.

Gabriella Katia, model: “Lot of competition, but I am just gonna stay positive.”

They’re at a casting call for Style Saves.

Rachel Russell, Founder of Style Saves: “Style Saves is a nonprofit organization I founded six years ago, and we raise funds through fashion.”

Founder Rachel is all about finding the right models as she unites fashion with charity.

Rachel: “The girls that we are looking for today in our casting are with high energy, they’re really fun, they’re really outgoing, they’re going to have big smiles.”

Dena Deggs, model: “It’s really good to meet them and see them, and hopefully I can walk with them and support the cause.”

This Friday, her foundation is having a Style Saves swim fundraiser at the Setai.

Rachel: “It’s our biggest event of the year. All the proceeds that we raise from this helps with our back-to-school event in order to provide underprivileged students in Miami-Dade community with necessities for back to school, which include uniforms, backpacks.”

Guests get to dance, drink and see swimwear fashion from Montce Swim, Trina Turk and I SHINE 365.

Rachel: “We’re very excited to have them all on board. It’s gonna be a great night.”
