“Also joining the 2009 line-up is special guest designer Agatha Ruiz De La Prada, whose exuberant, brightly colored creations garnered her the 2004 fashion Oscar in Italy as best foreign designer,” according to miamifashionweek.com.
As a MFW custom, concluding the night with the Miami Moda and Music Awards® is a must, and will feature global recording artists. Award presenters include Vincent de Paul from the movie “Poseidon,” and Angelica Celaya from the original cast of “Hairspray,” just to name a few.
