Catwalks and Perp Walks

With prison looming for T.I. on his road to redemption, the impending question for Funkshion Fashion Week Miami Beach is: Will he be present during his AKOO by T.I. fashion show? “We don’t know,” says Funkshion founder Sale Stojanovic. “But whether he goes to prison or not, they’ve signed the contract, and we’re doing the show.” The series of fashion events that begins Wednesday, March 25, will kick off with a presentation by Green Fashion Miami — a hive of international designers and beauty pageant winners — who will be gracing the catwalk with organic, recyclable fabrics. “Usually people think of people wearing cans,” says Luis Trujillo, CEO of Green Fashion Miami. “But there will be a variety of designs that you can wear every day or to a wedding.” But tonight feast your eyes on a collection that will make sure you are fashionably sound — Krelwear presented by Gen Art — in the main tent at 11th Street and Ocean Drive.

Stojanovic says there’s going to be a surprise performance by “a very famous recording artist,” but mum’s the word on whom. And, you know, there will be the usual Miami Beach trappings: liquor, naked asses, yachts, and, um, fashion.
