Local events: Miami Fashion week opens today

Written by Staff contributor Jen Herring.

The newest international clothing designs can be seen from March 19 through March 22 at SOHO Studios in Miami’s Wynwood Art District. The week includes eclectic food, music, models and 60 designers.

Many Latin celebrities are expected to attend the fashion event such as Grammy Award winning singer Albita, Miss Espana 2006, singer Ricardo Montaner and many others. Other recognizable names include Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza and Miss USA Crystle Stewart.

“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.

Top media reps expected to attend are CNN, Miami Herald, The New York Times Magazine, Vogue France and many others. Hmmm…do you think they forgot to put PBALocal on the list? Maybe next year!

The International Culinary Arts Pavillion was recently added to the event’s line up as well. Guests have the opportunity to enjoy foods from around the world, inspired by the diverse cultures of the fashion week designers. Want to indulge in cuisine created by Miami’s top chefs? Tickets are $20 at the door for the Culinary Arts Pavillion.
Dj Irie will be kicking off the 11th annual Miami Fashion Week (MFW) at club Mansion tonight, which features collections by Pascal Joel Weber, Mariano Lumbi and Glavidia Alexis.
