Running on its 12th year, the Miami International Fashion Week is back with events and showcases that’ll shake up your weekend plans. Main word emphasized here, “international”, meaning from March 18th -21 your senses will be loaded with cultural flavors, designs, and music, all in the creative heart of Miami.
 
If you’ve ever been to the Shops at Midtown Mall, you’re going to be blown away when you see the building transform into a “fashion city”. Incase you guys didn’t know, MIFW is a big deal. Being the largest international & Hispanic fashion event in the U.S., there will be hundreds of international media coverage, jet setters hoping to scope out the rawest talent and designs, and of course, fashion royalty gracing us with their presence.
 
Wednesday, March 15th-17th are dedicated to hear the preaching’s from the best of the industry. Seminars on the technical money-making aspect of the design world will be mapped out, as well a guide into trends and tradeshows. Local boutique owners and entrepreneurs will be popping up from our neighboring countries, so Miami natives, stake your claim and be first to reserve your tickets.
