Fully Funkshional

If you told us you didn’t care about fashion, we wouldn’t believe you. Sure, Zac Posen’s latest couture collection might not tickle your fancy, and you might not particularly care about the Karl Lagerfeld teddy bear, but an appreciation of style doesn’t always have to lean toward the high-end. Your attempt to coordinate that suit with that purse and that necklace is your unique interpretation of chic, and although we might not clap when you come strutting into the bank, we still offer up some kudos. You should show similar love to the designers at Funkshion Fashion Week, who have spent months, years, and maybe even lifetimes conceptualizing the collections they’ll be sending down the runway.

Through October 4, the week that inspired Russell Simmons to mint Miami the “fashion capital” will take over the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens, the Setai and Gansevoort hotels, and the whole of damn South Beach with models, celebs, and plenty of panache. It kicks off in high style this Wednesday, when fashionistas can check out Christian Audigier’s Bejeweled as well as fashion mag Harper’s Bazaar’s collection of drool-worthy designers. Visit for a complete list of locations and showtimes.
