Which is why Miami Fashion Week 2017 kicked off yesterday with fellow Colombian designer Silvia Tcherassi. The off-shoulder look is not going anywhere, neither are ruffles and handmade basket bags.
Miami is known for being the connection between Latin America and South America with the North American continent, having becoming in the past decades the northern capital of Latin America (you could say Miami’s fist language is Spanish). As so, Miami Fashion Week will mainly feature Latin designers including Rene Ruiz, Yirko Sivirich, Shantall Lacayo among other great talents.
Also, the fashion’s week honorary president this year Antonio Banderas will be hosting a benefit gala today June 2nd. Other guest speakers will include: Lucy Lara, editor-in-chief of Glamor Mexico & Latin America, Javier Goyeneche, president and founder of Ecoalf, Barbara Hulanichi, designer and artist, Orsola De Castro, founder and director of Fashion Revolution among others.
Most fashion runways are being carried out at the Ice Palace Film Studios and are by invitation only. But, there are other events open to the public as the Master Class led by industry experts on sustainable fashion, and Diego Torres Concert, both on June 3rd.
This is just the beginning for Miami as another Fashion capital, and we can’t wait to see what more is to come!
