Miami Fashion Week 2012: Art of Shade

With Brickell Fashion Week coming up next week and Miami Fashion Week not too far behind, I thought I’d keep the momentum going by continuing to post some favorites from the shows.

You might have first seen Art of Shade as featured in my teaser a little while ago, or maybe  as they made their debut last year and earned the coveted Designer’s Choice Award. This year’s collection was equally impressive with a hard edge that was surprisingly neither forced nor contrived, but rather displayed a little sci-fi-meets-post-apocalyptic-vulnerability.

Don’t really get what I mean? Check out the pics below to see for yourself and check out our Facebook page for more images from this show and many others.

Miami Fashion Week Teaser

It’s been a long week of shows and emerging designs, each fighting hard to make an impression on a crowd saturated with buyers and stylists. Though there were some collections that could have used some serious editing, for the most part, designers at Miami Beach International Fashion Week put out some memorable pieces – one of whom is shown below.

I have an incredible amount of images to share with you. But today, I leave you with one of my favorites. Art of Shade by Kayce Armstrong, recipient of the highly coveted Designer’s Choice Award at last year’s Fashion Week, returned with EVOLVE, a very well-received collection of “hard edged industry and lofty sails”, for their second appearance at MBIFW.

Check back often – I’ll be posting images from every show we attended. You can also find some daily pics on Facebook. Did any of you make it out to Fashion Week? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Let me know in the comments. Happy Friday!
