I was thrilled to attend the third night of the 16th annual Miami Fashion Week with one of my very dearest friends! This was actually my first time visiting the City of the Sun, the most diverse, engaging and multicultural melting pot in the world. The following schedule outlines the events that we attended on Saturday May 17th:
5:30-5:45 PM Eveningwear Showcase Fradila Kihel/Magnolia/Teresa Rosati/Olga Bolanos
6:45-7:15 PM Argentina Showcase Agostina Bianchi/Emprendedores de Muestra Tierra/Cuarto Colorado/Mariana Castro
8:00-9:15 PM Italy Showcase Stella Jean/Maliparmi
9:30-10:00 OM Swimwear Showcase Sambarela/Indie Soul/Yamamay
The evening featured designers from Italy and Argentina which provided a glimpse of the diverse fashion from around the globe. Miss Universe 2013 Gabriela Isler graced the runway in a variety of evening gowns and beachwear. A highlight of the evening included a new collection from Indie Soul which was unveiled for the first time at Miami Fashion Week. Tim Gorgol, Indie Should lead designer stated, "We wanted to honor our hometown by unveiling the collection for the first time in Miami instead of in Paris. Miami continues to grow as an epicenter of culture and fashion, and Indie Soul has been there every step of the way."
The Argentina Showcase featured adorable matching raincoats and umbrellas which made rainy days seem positively fashionable! And of course, what would a fashion show be without a bit of weirdness? This random flower dress featured in the Eveningwear Showcase raised a few eyebrows. I suppose it is true that some things only work on the runway.
My overall experience at Miami Fashion Week was quite pleasant, and I was truly inspired to update my wardrobe! I took oodles of photos and had a difficult time deciding which ones to include. I plan to return next year to attend a few of the classes as well as the fashion showcases.
