Weekend wrap up

It's Monday, everyone is back at work, Winter Music Conference has ended, all sorts of other events going on around town simultaneously have ended, things are getting back to normal. And by normal I mean traffic is horrible again, instead of this weeks ridiculously-gut-wrenchingly- horrible traffic. However, Miami is still filled with spring breakers walking around in bathing suits, taking pictures of cars and palm trees while sipping their sugary cocktails from souvenir cups. I guess that's the price you pay for living in this beautiful city where people come to vacation.

Over the weekend we went to a fashion event on the beach, where we spent our 15 block walk discussing the above. We went to Fashion Loves Haiti, a relief show held by Funkshion Fashion Week Miami Beach. They had several Haitian bands and performers as well as several very talented Haitian designers. The show started a bit late, but once it started it was lots of fun, and very stimulating to the senses!

The first designer that showed was Mejeanne Couture. Self described on her facebook as "MeJeanne Couture is an up and coming clothing line that embodies sophistication and individuality. Its designs are characterized by a bold and imaginative remodeling of past looks in order to meet and exceed today’s fashion expectations."
Both of us were instantly blown away! She creates these super flattering, amazing silhouettes with pleats and cut outs that make these dresses simply gorgeous. Her fabric choices made them appropriate for many occasions, and nothing seemed "too much". Many of the pieces that came down made both of us turn to each other and squeal in delight of how we'd love to wear 'em.

PS: This little lady was the cutest walker there! She seemed to be having a blast, and always had a smile on her face. She was, without a doubt, our favorite model.

The other designer we totally fell for was Dayanne Danier who presented pieces from her line Bien Abye (Well Dressed). Her Websites bio describes it as "Elegant styles that are tailored to a woman's silhouette; Bien AbyƩ collection is inspired by the desire to unveil a woman's sophistication and confidence with every step she takes while embracing her lifestyle." The looks were all gorgeous and refined, and made me really wish I had an office job so I can walk in there with her clothes looking fierce.

And look! The paparazzi also managed to snag a picture of Bunnie Bee!

Have a great week guys, and remember to stay posted!

PS: A few days earlier, Margaret worked the runway too! Congrats to her team on winning Most Elegant.
