Miami Fashion Week o Semana de la Moda de Miami refresco el espíritu de la moda en el sur de la Florida durante el mes de Marzo. La Semana de La Moda lleno las calles de Miami Beach con diseñadores de todo el mundo, bajo el reconocido Miami Beach Convention Center. Y sin duda, ofreció a su audiencia toda la emoción y deleite con las ultimas innovaciones y creaciones para el ano 2011

Este año, su tema principal fue sobre transformación y un nuevo comienzo, razón suficiente para un cambio de nombre. El titulo original de Miami Fashion Week oficialmente ha incluido dos adiciones, “Beach” e “Internationall” en su título, creando ahora un nuevo nombre publico: Semana de la Moda Internacional de Miami Beach (“Miami Beach International Fashion Week“).Durante el Jueves, 3 de marzo, diseñadores, como Art of Shade, exhibieron sus tendencias en la pasarela la cual se dedico explicadamente en mostrar el estilo característico de Miami. Con un estilo moderno, casi futurístico, Art Shade no fallo en deslumbrar los invitados de la noche con su estilo vanguardista y único. El toque “Internacional” entro en consideración el Viernes, 4 de marzo con una pasarela de diseñadores provenientes de Jamaica, como Ayanna Dixon, quien trajo una buena dosis de color. Proveniente de Jamaica, Avayanna trajo su estilo único y rejuvenecedor con la técnica de “Color Block”.

Aca hay unas cuantas imagenes para que se deleiten.

We wonder how or when did recycling old items became so fashionable? Surprisingly, you get to think that it is actually normal to spend a small fortune in a piece of clothing, a handbag or even shoes that were used by several other individuals before you!  The older, more raggedy and worn out, the better!  Unbelievable but so true.  That is the magic about fashion, the beauty of the unexpected.  Vintage has introduced itself in the fashion world and revolutionized the concept that new is not always better.

Chloe Sevigny and Sienna Miller

Take a look at our fashion muses, Vintage Queens Chloë Sevigny and Sienna Miller.  They are the experts in selecting vintage, one of kind items and mixing them with modern day-to-day basics.

Your grandma’s cocktail dress, Aunty Annie’s 60’s hard wear belt or your Mom’s go-go boots….well just forget about those go-go boots, and mix and match them with a basic LBD or a classic white tank top and jeans, and voila! Fashion magic at its best.  So, go around, search for that special vintage piece that will set you apart from the rest and explore different options, because remember, timeless is for ever.

PETA's Campaign

Not only has monetary reasons made fur less fashionable in the past decade, but it has been more of an ethical and personal decision.  We have all heard and seen PETA’s aggressive Fur Is Dead campaign against fur, but aside from the blood, the rotting carcasses and sad-faced animals, does fur still emulates luxury?  Yes, sadly it does, but now a new trend has evolved and that is faux fur.  Many famous retailers and designers as H&M, Forever 21, Stella McCartney, BCBG Max Azria and Juicy Couture, among others, have made the conscious decision to forgo fur completely from their collections.  And what a fabulous choice this has been, not only is faux fur economically accessible to everyone but there is no apparent sign that distinguishes real from synthetic, besides not having a dead animal’s skin covering your body.

Every last Friday of each month, The MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) located in North Miami, Florida celebrates Art Walk & Jazz Night at the MOCA.  On its latest event, Mandrake PR was there to appreciate some local modern art.   During this wonderful night, a Colombian artist was included to the night’s repertoire and that was our very own Marl Vilaro. His collection of tribal inspired accessories were on display for everyone to enjoy next to other great pieces of art at the vintage fashion and art boutique, Art with A Purpose, located in 791 N.E. 125 Street, North Miami, Florida 33161.

Our experience of MOCA’s Art Walk & Jazz Night was one remembered as a moonlight night visiting art galleries while enjoying wine and jazz tunes by Jean Caze and as one, we recommend and we are sure to repeat. For more information about MOCA’s nightlife schedule visit: http://www.mocanomi.org.

Building a brand is easy to say but difficult to accomplish.  Mandrake Public Relations, as a full service public relations and marketing firm, has experienced the tenacity one has to possess in order to succeed in this market.  Creating new ventures and possibilities for unknown artists and designers bring many challenges as well as hard work, but the final outcome outweighs anything else.

Case in point, Marl Vilaro Accessories.  Little by little, this young accessories designer, together with Mandrake Public Relations, is creating a brand name in a distant country, one he has yet to visit.  But magically, his name makes way into this constant competitive bazaar of intricate creativity, where every day brings something new to the table.

Marl Vilaro Accessories has much to offer and is in his initial stages of having his official U.S. launch in the United States.  So stay tuned.
