Raw Style: Miami Art Week
By Allison Weiss Brady
I was excited to head to Little Haiti for the Superfine! House of Art and Design exhibit (pictured, left)
. Housed in a previously abandoned building, this pop-up gallery was a raw space filled with broken pockets of holes in the wall and stark cement floors. Over 30 artists showcased at the pop-up gallery filled the walls with colors, creativity and imagination that brought this previously abandoned space to life.
When Worlds Collide: YoungArts Kicks-off Miami Art Week
With lifelike chalk moldings of Leica cameras, keyboards, microphones, Goodyear tires, telephones and teddy bears, Daniel Arsham’s interactive exhibition entitled The Future Was Written at YoungArts on Tuesday night gave you a chance to decorate the walls with abandonment. The young and old picked up pieces of chalk off the floor--- where I witnessed a gentleman picking up a full size basketball made of chalk, and inscribing his name on the blackboard wall that fully encompassed the first floor at the YoungArts Gallery. Mazdack Rassi, whose wife is the beautiful Zanni Roberts Rassi of the Project Runway TV show, was seen getting into the fun of it all by taking a selfie with a youngster with a Blackberry made of chalk.
Swag, Perks, and Pampering
As the July temperatures rose, so did the anticipation of delicious food, goodies and pampering that was to be received during summer’s main event, Miami Swim Week.
Models, VIP guests, fashion designers, bloggers, media and even retail shoppers all got to partake in the fun of Miami Swim Week. I needed to rest for two days after the events just to recover from the overindulgence of pampering - fine dining at The James Royal Palm hotel in South Beach, shows at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2015, swag and accessories shopping galore at the Second Annual Escape Miami Style Lounge.
Love is in the Air
It's that time of year, when hearts are full, restaurants are booked, and Tiffany's is busy selling jewelry.
Yes, it's Valentine's Day. And what better way to celebrate than to recognize the recent weddings of some of Miami’s best social stars - Jennifer Diliz to Ariel Galan, and Amy Zakarin to Isaac Rosenberg.
Jennifer Diliz’s fairytale wedding was the culmination of the best that Miami has to offer.
I accompanied the bride to J Del Olmo bridal store on Miracle Mile, where we were joined by the bride's mother, as well as SocialMiami's own fashion guru Elysze Held, who styled the bride and whole wedding party.
