I love Miami. This city is open territory for all things entertainment, creative, and the arts. So its natural that someone would want to bring fashion into the mix and create a film festival that primary focuses on the fashion industry and the people, places, and ideas that fuel it. Taking place at the O Cinema right in Wynwood on September 12-15, 2013, the festival will showcase documentaries, shorts, and narratives films — produced both locally and internationally. Theres something for film and fashion lovers alike.
“Our overall mission is to collectively evolve and diversify the way we experience fashion in our community and expand the dialogue on fashion as a thematic extension of the arts. Fashion is much more than clothes. Fashion is an artistic and creative lifeline for many,” says Grace M. Castro, Founder of the Fashion Inspires More.
The festival is the brainchild of Fashion Inspires More, a fashion infused non-profit Miami-based community arts organization formed in 2013. By creating collaborative projects that intermix fashion with multiple art disciplines including film, photography, writing, and design they are able to educate the public on various causes, opportunities, and overall culture within the industry.
Featuring an exclusive kick-off party, a film costume and photography exhibit, guest speakers, a fashion show, pop-up shops, and a closing party celebrating the festival’s anticipated success the event sounds like a fun week for all the fashionistas in Miami. It’s for a great cause benefiting the Fashion Inspired More arts organization and encouraging energy in the South Florida culture community. Love to see people doing great and unique things for a positive cause.
So, after rain, mud, and no power THE COLLECTION Pop-Up Shop was a big success!
It was our first time getting out into the field to bring you guys our online boutique in physical form. We collaborated with a wonderful street market that goes down each Second Saturday at Miami’s Art Walk. We planned and scavenged for the right products for this very special debut and we were happy to have satisfied customers! The market has various vendors from all different avenues. There was everything from home-made candles to tasty treats and African art. Our neighbors included a great local street artist named Frank and a home goods booth. We enjoyed the creative individuals and hungry entrepreneurs and really loved the energy of the whole lot.
Miami is bi-polar weather-wise. It can be sunny one minute and pouring raining the next. Our Saturday started out dark and cloudy and after a few hours of setting up out table then rushing to cover it up with plastic garbage bags we stuck it out and survived the rain. At the end, we ended up with a better location after the rain died out (and so did a few vendors, as many abandoned ship and left their good spots in the market!) We ended up with a prime location and some great foot traffic.
We really enjoyed ourselves and even saw a couple great friends and loyal supporters. From Tamar to Da Camp and ASAP P and the gang, we really enjoyed seeing our friends out there. Also cannot forget our wonderful team who helped us set up and even moved our table in the mud to our better location. They know who they are!
We really enjoyed this enough to say, next Art Walk we will be there again, braving it out and showing brand new quality items! We loved the energy of meeting you guys in person! Always stay updated with THE COLLECTION and come to the POP-UP SHOPS for reduced prices and quality service

In 1992 Reebok was looking to strengthen their presence on the basketball courts – so they teamed up with Shaquille O’Neal to create the SHAQ ATTAQ, a lightweight stability shoe that features pump technology on the tongue. Being re-released in select retailers this April 19th, 1973 by Mr.R has put together quite the Miami launch party for the retro sneaker.

As eerie as it is to hear one of R & B’s most promising songstress along after her death, you can not help but feel the power and emotion though her voice in MiamiMarci’s latest creation. The single featuring Drake was released with controversy surrounding the announcement of an Aaliyah album project being pursued by Drake himself as executive producer when Aaliyah’s family immediately announced their lack of support of the idea. We’re left with this collaboration of old and new and what could’ve been. MiamiMarci envisions the track with his signature sound which is sure to inflict emotion and leave you humming. Listen below.
Be sure to catch MiamiMarci curating a very rare Trap set this Thursday for Vagabond’s historical GET LOW presented by (((Shake))) event which literally features all things bass. From Dubstep, Hip-Hop, Juke, Moombahton, Trap, and Future Bass this night always promises to draw out a crowd and there’s $1 Colt 45 tallboys before midnight…..yeah I’m there. Check out the details below and join MiamiMarci in the bar area to get crunk.
