Whether or not we like to admit it, we all dream about fashion. Sure, some dreams are more like nightmares. (Think Ed Hardy, Crocs, and trucker hats.) But either way, fashion (or lack thereof) is present in all of our lives. It's walking down the street. It's in that really catchy TV commercial. It's in your office. Hey, it's even in that new Jay-Z song. (By the way, Tom Ford has been way cool for a while now, Hova.)
Few of us ever get to actually see models strut down a runway, though. And actually getting to see inside designers' heads? Fewer still. But the Miami Fashion Film Festival is destined to change that. Magic City masses, it's time for your fashion epiphany.
Taking place September 12-15, this Film Festival has it all: Documentaries that take us behind the scenes of how the fashion industry really comes together; films inspired by fashion; and, of course, those that have so many nods to style that they may as well be about fashion.
But there's more. At MIAFFF you'll also be able to experience a fashion photo exhibit, "Backstage: Nicolas Stipcianos," as well as workshops and a "fashion chat series." You'll be up front and center for expertly curated panels and bump shoulders with Miami's fashion elite. And if you want to see real fashion in the flesh, Keni Valenti is launching his latest 24-piece exhibit, "Italian Alta Moda." So the only question you should be asking yourself is: What are you going to wear?
