Dior Boutique at Miami Design District hosted a reception for Miami Symphony Orchestra on March, 10th, 2017.
After the concert by Miami Symphony Orchestra at Miami Design District, the party continued at the Dior boutique accompanied by delicious hors d’oeuvres and bubbly champagne.
Dior & its Spring/Summer 2017 Collection
At the shop, guests got to see the latest Christian Dior Couture. On display was the magical Spring/ Summer 2017 collection. Maria Grazia Chiuri the first female artistic director of Dior, wanted to bring her vision of femininity into her ready-to-wear pieces. One of the signature pieces from this collection are the basic white tees with the slogan “We Should All Be Feminists”.
This tee has brought up a lot of attention in the fashion world. Appearances were made by Athina & Eduardo Marturet ( Conductor of Miami Symphony), Rodner Figueroa (TV Host), and Venezuelan fashion designer, Nicolas Felizola.
Appearances & Interviews!
Felizola says “I love how multi-cultured Miami is. It began as a dream for many of us. It’s a fusion of art & fashion and you see it everywhere! In the streets, in people and we can now see it’s a lot more tangible.”
He says that conductor Eduardo Marturet brought all these elements together along with talented voices. “Miami is a metropolis of people of all different races and that makes us very unique”.
When I asked him what the modern-day woman of today needs, he says “A lot of personality, to be able to portray any piece and feel confident in it.”
His most recent collection is titled “Nicolas Felizola Privé.” It is inspired on the personality of a woman that understands fashion as a way of living and creates her own sense of style.
You can catch his pieces at his private atelier located in New York and here in Miami. You can get your appointment on his website: NicolasFelizola.com
Elysze Held talks about Gianni Versace’s influence
Stylist and owner of the firm “Style Out of the City,” Elysze Held also made an appearance. In a recent interview with Conrad Hotels she talks about how some high-end stores have relocated from South Beach to the Design District. She says that the biggest influence Miami had in terms of fashion is Gianni Versace. “Miami is now a mecca for art, fashion and food. Something that you couldn’t say about fifteen years ago,” said Elysze.
Miami Advancing in Architecture
Next, Interior designer Tessi Garcia, sister of Cuban-American actor Andy Garcia, also made an appearance. I got to chat a little bit about her work here in Miami. When asked about what has been some of her favorite work, she states “In 1990 I got to restore the Freedom Tower, where today Miami Dade College has all their events.
In more of her contemporary work, she designed all the South Point Towers in Miami Beach and the JADE Properties/ JADE Brickell. She also has worked with Jorge Perez and his properties including the Yacht Club of Miami.
She says “To see what the Design District has developed into what it is today… I’ve seen it reborn about three times. I’m glad that they’ve put this faith to make it happen. I take my hat off to Craig Robbins (CEO and Founder of Design District).”
