4 Reasons We Are Expanding Our Coverage To Miami
What do you think of when you hear the word “Miami”? Endless sunny beaches, a vibrant nightlife, parties galore, and enormous fun, right? We agree, and this August will expand our coverage to what industry-insiders are calling “the next fashion city”.
And we’re not alone in our fascination with Miami. Naeem Khan, Kate Middleton‘s and Michelle Obama‘s fashion designer, has moved his headquarters to the Magic City. But the fun doesn’t stop there…consider:
1) Miami’s Amazing Fashion History
We consider Miami’s burgeoning status as a fashion mecca a reboot. Just twenty years ago Miami led the country in garment manufacturing and specialized in risqué (at the time) swimwear.
2) Fashion Gurus are Moving to Miami
Rene Ruiz, a world-class dress and evening gown designer, caught the Miami fashion fever 30 years ago. The synergy between Khan and Ruiz will be as sizzling hot as the Miami beaches!
3) Fashion Education in Miami
Super-chic swimsuits, lingerie, oh-so-cute dresses, and stunning evening gowns are all being designed and shipped out of Miami. And it’s not an accident – Miami Dade is launching the Miami Fashion Institute, where aspiring designers will learn what it takes to be a cutting-edge designer.
4) The Design District
Miami is also home to Dacra, a creative real estate company that is infusing the design district with a unique blend of design, art, and architecture. And it’s working – Dior, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Cartier and Tom Ford have claimed their spot in the Design District.
