What Are You Wearing?

Though the New York fashion set likes to tease that Miami style is all about skin-tight dresses and Ed Hardy T-shirts, let us not be judged by the dodgy clothing choices of the tourists we attract. Sure, we don’t have four full, defined seasons, and the weather lands us in a nearly year-round resort-wear rut, but our city is about more than just putting on whatever piece of fabric we can find. This Friday evening, the fashion set’s glitterati, the Miami Fashion Association, will show how it’s done. The superstyle conglomerate will take over über-chic high-rise boutique hotel the Webster for its annual gala celebrating the people who don’t leave the house without at least one piece of wearable art. Donning perhaps a puffy-sleeved blouse or a chunky Lucite bangle, local fashionistas will jockey for the title of Best Dressed. Designers Julian Chang and Danny Santiago will be the guests of honor, so attendees should dress to impress — the gods are watching. Cocktails flow at 7 p.m.
