Social Styles: Spring Fever and Haute Style
Who Wore What to Where by Elysze Held
Nigel Barker, Celebrity Fashion photographer and host of The Face divulged his view on Miami Fashion: “Fashion is meant to be worn. Miami has the weather to wear fashion and Miami women have the guts to wear the clothes. The women in Miami actually wear the clothes that you see on the runways!”
Stylist Elysze Held was on the scene to find it’s all about color this spring at the major happening this month: Miami Art Museum reception with Carolina Herrera, Arsht Center Spring Gala with Harry Connick Jr., Big Brothers Big Sisters Miracle Makers Luncheon, Gentlemen’s Night Out with Miami Children’s Hospital Foundation, Debut of ‘In the Now’ at Village of Merrick Park, The Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame gala, Miami City Ballet Luncheon honoring iconic dancer Merrill Ashley and the TYPOE /Deltoro shoe event for the Webster.

“Reflections” at C-Art
C-Art Gallery, in collaboration with the prestigious Marlborough Gallery in New York, presented “Reflections.” Curated by Kosme de Baraños, the show took place at O. Ascanio Gallery as a “pop-up” exhibition. For his first solo exhibition in Miami, David Rodriguez Caballero presented 30 aluminum, brass and vinyl art works. His characteristic aluminum and brass pieces are from his metal series, while his vinyl works form part of an independent series that juxtaposes different layers of monochrome acetate resulting in a paint-like finish. Caballero arrived in Miami for his solo exhibition after a strong showing at the Marlborough New York and Madrid that were well received by the public, critics and art collectors. In addition, his work was recently showcased at Art Basel Miami Beach, The Armory Show and Arco.
