Superdesigner Karl Lagerfeld swears by Coke Zero and is rarely seen in anything thats not white-and-black. Traver Rains and Richie Rich -- the guys behind avant-garde fashion line Heatherette -- rock more makeup than you probably have in your entire eye-lined life. Now if you think youre ready for a similar life of fashion and eccentricity, youd better be at the Fashion Designers Expo of South Florida.
Founded by the inventive minds behind Kimaje Kreations, the expo is for aspiring fashion and accessories designers as well as models. Its creating a Fashion Week feel but for aspiring designers, says the events director, Clinton K. Powell. Anybody whos in their room sewing or at home trying to put something together, or walking in front of the mirror saying that they can be a model -- this is going to get them that exposure. This three-day event at the Hyatt Regency Hotel & Miami Convention Center will feature workshops, runway shows, musical performances, and plenty of networking. Todays opening-night soiree, which takes place from 8:00 to 11:00, is an all-white VIP cocktail party where you can mingle with industry professionals and hopefuls, and hear homegrown R&B idol Casely sing his hit song Emotional.
