For me, Miami Fashion week started with an unexpected surprise. I received an unsolicited email a few weeks prior inviting me to Fashion Week. I flipped out of my chair and did a dance in my office. Then I gushed to my bffs about how excited I was and what the H was I going to wear?????????
I studied the schedule and the international designers that would be a part of the showcase, and later, was asked by the production company to do a short interview. (Video to come!)
Miami Fashion Week was founded 16 years ago by Beth Sobol, an international fashion model for 20+ years and fashion producer. Since it's inception, Miami Fashion Week's runways have hosted the latest designs of major international designers such as Custo Barcelona, Moschino, Vivienne Westwood, Stella McCartney, Roberto Cavalli, to name a few.
Day #1 : Kickoff Party at Eden Roc Hotel
The party started at the Eden Roc Hotel in Miami Beach where celebrities such as the Kardashians have been known to stay and enjoy the amenities. Over 900 guests comprised of media, celebrities, and fashion designers attended. There was even a fun "Silent Dance Party Floor" where you put on these cool glow-in-the-dark headphones and grooved to your own beat.
Day #1: Fashion Shows
I did not get to attend any of the day time workshops (bills gotta be paid), but I raced out of the office, glammed up, and sped (no tickets tho) over to the beach in time for the Miami Overture (featuring the resort wear of Erin Healy / Vika Frolova / Fabrizio de Castro), the Miami Showcase (featuring Nicolas Felizola), the Eastern Air Lines Competition (~~Julian Chang / Lisu Vega / Kayce Armstrong / Samy Gicherman / Viviana G) and Special Guest Custo Barcelona
Here are some pics to highlight the fun of sitting in the front row! Excuse the pic quality, all pictures were taken from my iPhone. Until my iPhone died...
