The Smiles Foundation meets again on Tuesday, December 11th 2012, at the popular urban contemporary restaurant, Wynwood Kitchen & Bar from 6:00pm to 9:00 pm to celebrate A Night for Smiles.  The Smiles Foundation’s fourth annual event in Miami promises to raise funds for various foundations in Colombia and Bolivia. The funds collected on this night will be distributed to local organizations to implement effective projects thanks to the help of Conexion Colombia and Bolivia Smiles Foundation. The night’s promise is to deliver gifts to thousands of children in December and in addition, promote education in these rural sectors. Conscience and glamour, under one roof. 

The Smiles Foundation is a philanthropic group that seeks to give support, offer economic aid and achieve many smiles.  This year, A Night for Smiles will offer its guests a cocktail reception at Wynwood Kitchen and Bar, located at 2550 N.W. 2nd Avenue, Miami, Florida. The space will offer a unique experience, surrounded by art and a relaxed atmosphere, where guests can enjoy a vast selection of international wines as Marqués de Riscal and Epica, and toast for this wonderful occasion. The magical portion of the night will be the silent auction which will offer unique items of memorable value.  This year, recognized brands such as Silvia Tcherassi, Avianca and Viceroy Hotel, will be donating items and services.

On this edition, Latin stars as Shakira and others, will join the cause by donating to the long and valued list of auction items.  As an added feature, the event will offer a live mystery show, where guests will share the main ingredient of the night, a warm smile.   The realization of this major project would not have been possible without the valuable collaboration of those people who believed in the unlimited smiles that The Smiles Foundation will bring to thousands of children.  Likewise, its production had the valuable support of important allied companies who joined their services for the night’s success.

During Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Miami, I had the honor and pleasure of working with Trendy Studios for the production of Agua Bendita’s Fashion Show.

The electricity, the good one, was perceived instantly from corner to corner the moment you entered the white tent encapsulating the white runway for Agua Bendita’s 2013 collection. Mandrake was able to work backstage prepping video and camera for the show, and we had a glimpse of what is to come in 2013 from this bohemian chic swimwear brand.  With a delightful meeting, followed by an insight interview with Mariana Hinestroza, one of the two designers behind the creative bikini and accessory line, I had the inside scoop of what inspired this new collection, and a first look at the their fashion show lineup.   

The collection has prominent Native American/Wild West motif with a twist of metals and blinding brights. “We wanted to showcases the effort, work and honor natives have in their work and struggle for existence.” stated Hinestroza. And I might add, it is quite sexy and fun.

It quickly transformed into a navy and military concept, featuring 1940’s style pinups, shiny army insignias, feminine pink anchors and retro military propagandas images.  Genius!  Masculine, but pretty; Retro but modern.

After the prep, hair and make up, the music went blasting and the catwalk was blinded by international flashes capturing images for mayor press entities who were delighted by this Colombian fashion line.

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.
