The hills are alive with the sound of... fashion? OK, so there may not be any hills around South Beach, but starting today, there'll be plenty of fashion talk in the air as Miami Beach International Fashion Week (MBIFW) rolls into town with a plethora of events at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

One of the world's premier fashion events, MBIFW spotlights designers from around the globe, including Europe, Asia, the Caribbean, and the States -- yep, even some from right here in South Florida. "Attendees can expect to see over 60 designers from 22 countries coming to Miami Beach to showcase their latest collections in swimwear, lingerie, women's evening wear, men's wear, jewelry, and accessories," says Beth Sobol, president of Sobol-Perry Productions Inc., which founded MBIFW in 1999.

And this year, Sobol says, the event will be bigger and better than ever. "We have more designers and are thrilled to be back in Miami Beach, where we have a bigger venue and have the capabilities of accommodating more attendees. We have also rebranded as Miami Beach International Fashion Week and are here to stay."

The festivities will kick off today with the latest in lingerie and swimwear from designers such as Zella Machado (Brazil), Helen Victoria Swimwear (USA), Kanomi Swimwear (Venezuela), among many others. On Friday, fashion enthusiasts can check out the Jamaican showcase with designers such as POSHE by Camesha Powell, and Julan by Juliette Dyke; while Friday evening is all about the boys with the Men's Showcase, featuring fashion by Mauricio Alberino and Robert Flores from the Dominican Republic.

Saturday will feature the Pret-A-Porter Style Showcase with works from Eccentric Apparel, LUXXE Collections, and Marina Makaron-Russia, among others. Festivities will wrap up Sunday with the Miami Moda & Music Awards.

"Putting together MBIFW takes commitment and dedication fused together with a love for the industry and designers," Sobol says. "Fashion has always been part of my life, and there is no better way for me to show my appreciation for these works of art other than to showcase them at Miami Beach International Fashion Week."

Miami Beach International Fashion Week begins today at 6 p.m. and runs through Sunday at the Miami Beach Convention Center (1901 Convention Center Dr., Miami Beach). Visit for more information.
