Miami International Fashion Week: Reborn x Reimagined

 

 

On June 2nd through June 5th, Miami Fashion Week took place at the Ice Palace Studios in Miami’s Art district. The 5-day event was an opportunity for designers to showcase their upcoming luxury resort collections, all of which reflect on the lavish Miami lifestyle, especially the rapid-growing design scene. Antonio Banderas, the new honorary president of Miami Fashion Week, has been very excited about his new position and has used his passion for both the city of Miami and for fashion to make efficient changes and come up with new ideas in order to create the most extravagant Miami Fashion Week thus far. Banderas proves his excitement as he states,

“We’re going to bring to fashion a new way of communicating. Unquestionably, Miami is a city in full swing with a rapid growth in all areas that deserves to have a fashion event of the highest international level.”

Miami Fashion Week equipped designers and fashion enthusiasts with an extraordinary opportunity. Miami’s VIP crowd was able to experience a variety of fashion-forward events that were also educational in many ways. Each of the brands that presented their 2017 collections during the 5-day event have fascinating histories. The designers beautifully presented the culture behind each of their brands on the runways.

 

Aguaclara

During a time when the Peruvian government banned machinery imports, Liliana Villalobos continued to pursue her passion and used her sewing skills and great ideas to build Aguaclara, a brand that was created to access the European and North American markets. Liliana’s designs are influenced by the riches of the Amazon and its ethnics.
