The mall is as silent as the deserted one in Dawn of the Dead, and the boutique strip in South Beach resembles a Wild West ghost town. Where are all the shoppers? Poised devilishly over their piggy banks with hammer in hand, because tonight Gen Art and Perrier present Shop Miami, a one-night sample sale of epic proportions. At this fashion free-for-all (open to the public as well as wholesale buyers) in the three-story Moore Space, fashionistas can check out the newest styles by independent designers from across the nation -- like Cardiac, Gentleman Bastards, and Adrianne Ruffin -- in a clublike atmosphere. With an extended DJ set by Induce, bottomless flutes of bubbly by POP champagne, hair-styling by ECRU New York, and complimentary stress-relief by the finest spas, the admission price is absorbed before you pick up your first frock. The event runs from 7:00 to 11:00 p.m. Tickets cost $10 to $40. Call 305-695-8200, or visit www.genart.org.
