FUNKSHION: Fashion Week Miami Beach Closes with Style Mafia
By Katie Jackson
After a week filled with fashion, art, and music, FUNKSHION: Fashion Week Miami Beach came to a close Thursday night. The five-day celebration featured fashion shows by Liliana Montoya, Original Penguin by Perry Ellis, Cubavera, the Miami Art Institute, and the Miami-based boutique Style Mafia, which closed the week’s events. SEVENFRIDAY presented the highly anticipated Art Conductor: Reset, which featured a multisensory installation by local Miami artists Magnus Sodamin and Aileen Quintana. Graphographics, a local Miami art production company, also displayed freestanding sculptures in the center of the FUNKSHION fashion tent for attendees to admire. Guests also enjoyed a sneak peak of Dior’s campaign for their latest fragrance Miss Dior. The campaign, starring Natalie Portman, aims to bring out the sassy side of Dior women. Guests were also provided with delicious complimentary food and beverages by chefs Herb Wilson and Red Ginger, and Miami’s Pizza Bar, while the Peroni Music Lounge hosted multiple DJs per night.
If you missed this week’s celebrations, don’t fret. FUNKSHION: Fashion Week Miami Beach will be back this July to showcase the latest swimwear trends, and again in October with a fresh and exciting line-up of events.
