FUNKSHION is Miami’s leading fashion platform that provides an innovative way for established and emerging designers to showcase their collections to media, celebrities, international buyers, style makers and influencers. The unique environment that challenges convention enriches and diversifies Funkshion into multidisciplinary experience that brings visionary brands together. FUNKSHION is a triannual event that includes over 40 fashion shows and presentations year-round. Traditional fashion ways infused with art and music create a new way to submerge the viewer and encourage creativity.
With Miami as its home FUNKSHION is perfectly positioned to serve as a connecting force between the Latin American and the US markets. This July 15th – 20th Funkshion will be the only Swim Week option giving you access to a custom runway show tent on the beach at Collins Park.
The state of the art tent will be erected between 21st and 22nd streets on Collins Avenue, offering you the opportunity to showcase your collection on a 70’ long runway, with options for customizable backdrop, seating and entrance. Additionally, Funkshion is building unique, bridged runways in four Miami Beach hotels: The Setai, Soho Beach House, SLS South Beach and Thompson Hotel. Sponsors of this season’s Funkshion events will include Peroni, jetBlue and Nespresso, in addition to VCA Miami Beach.
The schedule is close to being filled, with only a few time slots remaining. Confirmed designers for this year’s Swim Week include Luli Fama, Acacia, 6 Shore Road, Maaji, Liliana Montoya, Rob and Lulu, Dijana Swimwear, Sinesia Karol and Tori Praver to name a few. Additionally, Funkshion will assist Mara Hoffman with production and installation at Casa Casuarina. Peroni will also host an emerging designers show presented by FGI and VCA, in addition to special shows and presentations hosted by Maxim Magazine and Style Saves.
