Social Styles: Around the Town in Spring Style

Who Wore What to Where by Elysze Held

In South Florida, the name Elysze Held is synonymous with style. As founder and president of the Miami fashion/image consulting firm, Style Out of the City, Elysze is the personal stylist to WSVN 7/Deco Drive’s hosts, Lynn Martinez & Louis Aguirre and has dressed CEO’s, models, super-models, celebrities, socialites & fashionistas! Elysze frequently commutes to New York, is a field producer for Mercedes Benz New York Fashion week, and styles national advertising campaigns. With her stylist’s eye, she lets us know WHO WORE WHAT to WHERE!

Miami still trending with shades of black & white, pops of color, and good ole effortless chic. There were quite a few ambassadors of the fashion world dropping into our hometown hot spots for style:

  • Nanette Lepore welcomed Spring at her shop in Bal Harbour
  • Kal Rubenstein previewed the stunning style of Donna Karan at Neiman Marcus Bal Harbour
  • Lubov Azria, the glamourous CEO of Chic BCBG Max Azria & Herve Leger at Saks Bal Harbour(and brought the Runway looks with her!)
  • ESCADA International Fashion Director Daniel Wingate at the Raleigh Hotel presented by Neiman Marcus Merrick Park
  • Nancy Gonzalez, the queen of the exotic handbag at Saks Bal Harbour
  • Designer Ramy Sharp of Ramy Brooke hosted a dinner for Miami fashionistas at the W Hotel
  • Dr. Valerie Steele, curator of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, and the #1 authority of the history of fashion, was at Taschen Books on Lincoln Road to celebrate her book Fashion from A to Z

And this being Miami, locale of all things art, there was style personified at the chic art happenings in town:

  • Best Buddies’ Keith Haring Retrospective in the Design District
  • Début of Jorge M. Pérez collection at the Miami Art Museum.
