Ten Designers to Watch During Miami Fashion Week
Madge said it best: Beauty's where you find it. And starting this Wednesday, you can find it in South Beach, off of Convention Center Drive. That's right -- Miami Fashion Week is coming to town. From May 15-18, the Miami Beach Convention Center will serve as a pantheon of textile savants and design luminaries.
Though not as famously known as July's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, the simply named Miami Fashion Week emphasizes on rounding up the best in up-and-coming designers worldwide in every category, from Ukraine's contemporary brands to Spanish lingerie designers.
While most Magic City fashionites regale over the kid-in-a-candy-shop likes of all the pop-up shops looking to claim their bank account, it's the luxe runway shows that really get us riled up. Here are the top 10 hopefuls we can't wait to see at Miami Fashion Week.
Conceived by Peruvian designer Chiara Macchiavello, Escudo fuses rural textures and folkloric concepts into modern-day trends. Keeping it real to its chaufa-lovin' roots, the brand opts for Alpaca wools and hand-loomed wovens to portray only the highest level of authenticity. Why wouldn't we be stoked to wave the Peruvian flag of fashion pride? By the way, BYOC (bring your own ceviche) is highly encouraged.
9. Lola Kids
This week's stage isn't only exclusive to leggy felines. Kittens and pups have fashion rights too. Children's line Lola Kids will cloak model youngsters from ages 2 to 10, sporting edgy trends like drop crotch joggers done oh so right in classic prints. It's like Ralph Lauren and Rick Owens had a baby - or a couple dozen.
