Brunch and Couture Fashion Show by TA Couture at Vanderbilt Mansion

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure to attend the Brunch and Couture Fashion Show by fashion designer and friend Tammy Apostol, Founder and Creative Director of TA Couture.

The fashion event took place at the Vanderbilt Mansion in the exclusive Fisher Island in Florida and was to aid and promote the Unicorn Children’s Foundation. An international non-profit organization that was founded by Mark Rosenbloom MD 25 years ago with the mission of supporting cradle-to-career pathways that help children and young adults with special needs to excel in their communities.

My favorite Miami’s fashionista, current co-host and Film Critic for WSVN’s popular Deco Drive lifestyles show, Shireen Sandoval, was mistress of ceremonies adding her charming and fun-loving touch to the dynamics of the afternoon and Haley Moss, first openly autistic lawyer in Florida,  gave an inspirational and aspiring speech catching the attention of a vast crowd.

The Fashion Show by TA Couture

The highlight of the event was the fashion presentation by TA Couture showcasing a collection that featured intricate beading evening gowns, cocktail dresses and super embroidered jumpsuits with a palette of pastel colors along with red, royal blue, black and white—pieces that were gracefully accessorized with fascinators and hats by the same fashion house.

I remember, I met Apostol in 2016, when she was  Regional Director of The Fashion Group International, the largest network of fashion professionals worldwide, and later, she was named the ” Entrepreneur of the Year 2018″ for this organization.

Closing  2018, my blog Miami Fashion Spotlight named her, “Our Favorite Designer of the year” for her unique designs.

TA Couture: Made in Miami!

Tammy Apostol  has grown into one of the most valuable local fashion designers in our city of Miami!

The designs of her brand TA Couture have been featured in the most influential magazines and fashion blogs and have been worn by socialites, celebrities, and actresses, among others, including TV host Shireen Sandoval and myself.

Finally, I would like to add that I am thrilled about the concept of couture design because I love the idea of uniqueness. It’s just amazing how a fashion designer can design for every single customer with a high level of creativity and individualization, capturing the sense of each customer’s vision.

See you in the mirror!

Brunch y Desfile de moda de alta costura de TA Couture en la Mansión Vanderbilt

El pasado sábado, tuve el placer de asistir al Brunch y Desfile de Moda de alta costura de la diseñadora y amiga Tammy Apóstol, Fundadora y Directora Creativa de TA Couture.

El evento tuvo lugar en la mansión Vanderbilt en la exclusiva Fisher Island en Florida y fue a beneficio de “Unicorn Children’s Foundation”.  Una organización internacional sin fines de lucro que fue fundada por Mark Rosenbloom MD hace 25 años con la misión de proporcionar recursos que ayuden a niños y adultos jóvenes con necesidades especiales (desde que nacen hasta carreras universitarias) a sobresalir en sus comunidades.

Mi fashionista favorita de Miami, co-anfitriona actual y crítica de cine para el programa Deco Drive de WSVN, Shireen Sandoval, fue la maestra de ceremonias agregando su toque encantador y divertido a la dinámica de la tarde y Haley Moss, la primera abogada abiertamente autista en Florida dio un discurso inspirador que llamó la atención de todos los asistentes.

El desfile de TA Couture

La atracción principal del evento fue el desfile de modas de TA Couture mostrando una colección que presentaba vestidos de noche con cuencas intrincadas, vestidos de cóctel y jumpsuits súper bordados; con una paleta de colores pasteles, además del rojo, azul real, blanco y negro entre otros–piezas que fueron graciosamente combinadas con fascinadores y sombreros por la misma casa de moda.

Recuerdo que conocí a Apóstol en el 2016, cuando era Directora Regional del “Fashion Group International”, la red más grande de profesionales de la moda en todo el mundo, y más tarde, esta organización la nombró “Emprendedora del Año 2017”.

Y cerrando el  2018, mi blog Miami Fashion Spotlight la nombró “Nuestra Diseñadora Favorita Del Año” por la exclusividad de sus diseños.

TA Couture: Hecho en Miami

Tammy Apóstol se ha convertido en una de las diseñadoras locales más valiosa de nuestra ciudad de Miami, sin lugar a duda.

Los diseños de TA Couture han aparecido en las revistas y blogs de moda más influyentes y han sido usados ​​por personas de la alta sociedad, celebridades y actrices, entre otras, incluyendo la presentadora de televisión Shireen Sandoval y esta servidora quien les escribe.

Finalmente, me gustaría agregar que estoy encantada con el concepto de diseño de alta costura porque me gusta la idea de singularidad—es sorprendente cómo un diseñador de moda puede diseñar para cada cliente con un alto nivel de creatividad e individualización, capturando el sentido de la visión de cada cliente.

¡Nos vemos en el Espejo!

Note from the Editor: To attend this charity event, I chose the gorgeous and super comfortable  Parma jumpsuit by Black Halo (Yes, it was a jumpsuit!) I paired with my YSL black clutch and black pumps by Carrano Shoes. I continued with black, wearing black rounded sunglasses by Miu Miu and I let the earrings do the talking with these multi-colored earrings by Chanel.

You can shop this look at my Shop Style Store here:

Nota de la Editora: para asistir a este evento de caridad, escogi la espectacular y super comoda braga o mono (como le llamen en su país) “Parma” de la casa Black Halo (aunque no parezca era un jumpsuit). Lo acompañé con mi cartera clutch de YSL y zapatos pumps de Carrano Shoes. Continué con el color negro hasta en los lentes de sol, usando estas gafas redondas de Miu Miu y dejé que los aretes o zarcillos hablaran por sí solos con estos aretes multicolores de Chanel.

Puedes comprar este look en mi tienda Shop Style aquí: Shopstyle.com/shop/miafashionspot o haz click en la imagen.
