miami int'l fashion week 3/20/10

here's the rub: i found out about Miami International Fashion Week a few days ago and decided that I had to go. i told some of my friends and we made plans. i go online to buy tickets and realize now that everything is sold out. the horror! so i thought my plans had fallen through, but i decided to still go to miami to see if anyone was selling.

my fiance and i were walking around the event looking at the designer sample sale and taking photos. a girl says to me something like, "this is one of the designers. you should pay attention to her show tonight." i told her that we, unfortunately, didn't have any tickets. then she said, "really? i'll get you tickets."

turns out, this girl was a publicist so she gave us two tickets for the evening show. what luck! talk about being in the right place at the right time.

designers for the evening showcase on saturday included Pia Gladys Perey, Fammee, Leny G and Michelle Salins. here are some photos from the night:
i apologize in advance for my crappy camera!

what i wore
leggings: target; shoes: vera wang for kohl's
sitting front row--woo hoo!

Pia Gladys Perey: Resort Wear Collection

Pia is from the Philippines and learned about fashion from watching her grandmother sew. She launched her own label White Kitten with sales in Australia and interest in Europe.

Michelle Salins: The Jewel Tones of India

Michelle transitioned from interior design to fashion design and now has a production facility in India. She explores couture bridal wear with a signature butterfly motif.

you probably can't see (because my camera is horrible) but they have butterfly designs in their headpieces and on their dressesmy fiance became a definite fashion fan with this collection. he loved this dress!one of the models looked so familiar. i think she might've been on America's Next Top Model or something because i was definite i'd seen her before.

what do you guys think of the collections?

Leny G
Michelle Salins
Pia Gladys Perey
