Friends Fun Wine and Style Mafia Mixes Wine and Fashion For a Good Cause
For local clothing brand Style Mafia and beverage group Friends Fun Wine, sharing is definitely caring. To prove their allied kinship, the two will have joint custody of The Broken Shaker on Thursday, May 1, for a night awash with wine sampling and apparel-turned-art auctioning.
On the liquid courage forefront, guests will have the chance to sample from a fizzy, canned rainbow of flavors cultivated by Friends Fun Wine. Moscatos of the strawberry, peach, rosé, and white variety. Red and white sangria will be served by mixologists Gui Jorschy, Rich Petronzi, Tara Long, and Ben Potts.
Instead of leaving with some man-candy, tasters will get to go home with their flavor-of-choice for the night. You'd be surprised just how cuddle-worthy a can of good wine can be.
For fans of both fashion and art, Wynwood-based Style Mafia will be bringing some of its collection pieces to serve as blank canvases for major paint splattering purposes.
Miami's finest roundup of artists including Sabrina Yanguas, Gabriel ("GG") Gimenez, Marcos Conde, Ivan Roque, Aquarela Sabol, Jake Cordero, and Yuhmi Collective will go to town on once-lifeless palettes to turn out some stellar, wearable pieces art.
"I'm so happy to be working with Miami artists on this collaboration and showcasing at one of my favorite spots," says the night's host and Style Mafia founder, Simonett Pereira.
The fashion installation of one-off pieces, curated by Yess Miakoda and Justin Hamel, won't be produced for just appearance sake. Each upgraded piece will be auctioned off to all the lusting ladies looking to swap the 'ole LBD for a piece, adding some spice to their life, or maybe just some Campbell Soup.
After making it rain all over Freehand, rest peacefully with the satisfaction that your hard-earned cash was not thrown in vain. All proceeds from the auction will benefit Camillus House.
While your double fistin' your peach moscato and white sangria, calling dibs on a Campbell Soup dress, the easy beats of Argentinian beauty, Zoel, will help relinquish any lingering buyer's remorse.
The two-hour fashion, art, and wine frenzy goes down Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m. and is open to the public, besides the "21 and older" mark on their ID. Sorry, younglings.
