There is no better destination to find your individual style than in magnificent Miami. It is the international gateway to unique fashion.
For over 15 years now, Miami Fashion Week has been the ultimate event to set the global trends and showcase unique designer collections from across the continent. Miami Fashion Week has always been recognized for delivering superb international creative talent, whether it be emerging or established, to the forefront of the American retail marketplace. Miami Fashion Week is quite simply the cutting edge leader of the fashion industry.
In 2014, the stage will be set and a new day will be dawning in Miami for Miami Fashion Week as we know it, because it has been redesigned with a fresh new feel and a whole new look. The event is creating the world's first international platform for Cruise/Resort and Pre-Spring designer collections. This is the premiere of Miami Fashion Week Resort.
"What better place in the world to launch a new resort show than Miami Beach" says Beth Sobol, Miami Fashion Week’s CEO and President of Sobol-Perry Fashion Productions. "With Miami known as the cruise capital of the world, we have created a new international platform for designers to show their resort and pre-spring collections in one cohesive location." "We’re very excited about the continued global expansion of the Miami Fashion Week brand" says Managing Partner, Aaron Perry.
There is so much to look forward to. Being the largest Latin American and international fashion event, Miami Fashion Week will celebrate fashion, beauty, music, art, cuisine and lifestyle bridging a crossover of international culture from designers, entertainers and celebrities from across the globe. Over the course of the week, industry professionals along with media and diversified guests, will view the latest collections of women's wear, menswear, swimwear, jewelry and accessories. Some of the designers themselves will make personal appearances, a real thrill for fashion enthusiasts.
MFW has created a retail relations "Buyers & Agents Program" to invite the top US, Canadian and Latin American retail buyers in the department store and specialty store markets as well as the agents at some of the most important designer showrooms to attend the fashion shows. Buyers and agents will receive special incentives, opportunities and private meetings with some of the most exciting established and emerging designers in the world, who are all launching their new resort collections in Miami Beach.
"Miami Fashion Week continues to offer cutting edge designer collections every year with inspiration to re-invent my retail environment, introduce me to the freshest retail concepts, and expand my fashion vocabulary. The Resort collections will be a welcomed addition to Miami Fashion Week," explains Robin Fleming, Retailer at LA CASA HERMOSA of Wellington.
"As a buying office representing over 200 National and International retailers, the resort market has become very important to the industry. Since we are looking for more turns in product and a wider assortment, it has become a challenge to attend many shows just to find a few resources. We are excited about the creation of Miami Fashion Week RESORT, finally a one stop shop for our resort needs with some of the most exciting and talented emerging designers of the world." Mercedes Gonzalez, Director, Global Purchasing Group, NYC.
The scene has been set, the countdown now begins as we await the new approach to fashion on an international scale, Miami Fashion Week Resort, taking place from May 15, 2014 through May 18, 2014 in Miami Beach.
