Social Styles: Haute Happenings in February
Who Wore What to Where by Elysze Held
Fresh from New York Fashion Week (and snow) SocialMiami contributor Stylist Elysze Held hit the ground running on her return from attending over 30 NYFW shows (stay tuned for her article on what to expect for Fall 2014) and set out to substantiate the smart, sophisticated, and polished style that is modern Miami (NOT tight dresses and gravity-defying shoes)!

An Unbreakable Bond Debuts at MIFF
An Unbreakable Bond, a film by Emilio Estefan documents the relationship between NFL Hall of Famer Nick Buoniconti, his son Marc and their nearly three decade struggle to find a cure for spinal cord injuries. The film will make its world debut at the 31st edition of Miami Film Festival (MIFF), produced and presented by Miami Dade College (MDC), on Tuesday, March 11th at 6:30 PM at the Olympia Theater at The Gusman Center for the Performing Arts.
Estefan, a 19-time Grammy award winning producer, directed and produced this documentary that archives the Buonicontis’ lives as they faced paralysis head on. From the beginning in 1985 when Marc was injured, the film follows their journey from the creation of The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis through the present day as they stand at the forefront of paralysis research.
