Designer Rene Ruiz previews his Spring Collection
Rene Ruiz, one of Miami’s hottest fashion designers, used his passion for fashion for a great cause for the third year in a row. The renowned couture designer unveiled his 2007 spring collection to benefit the South Florida Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society at their 24th Annual Gala Luncheon & Fashion Show held at the Broward County Convention Center.
Socialites including Carrie Schulman, Robin Levinson, Maria Martin, Jennifer Shelley, Susie Edelsburg, event chair Monica Goldstein, and event honoree Denise Zimmerman enjoyed a runway extravaganza that left nothing behind. Models strutted down a double runway draped in Ruiz’s ready-to-wear designs, including cocktail, evening wear, bridal and custom couture. To the pleasant surprise of the 1,000 ladies in the audience, the show also debuted Ruiz’s first-ever men’s collection. Ruiz’s show gave onlookers a glimpse of what his ever-expanding clientele, including celebrities such as Paris Hilton and Kimora Lee Simmons, already enjoys.
