Looking Back: Design Miami 2014 and Design Miami 2013

Design Miami 2014 and Design Miami 2013

With almost 40,000 visitors, the Design Miami/ 2014 Tenth Anniversary Edition was it’s most successful iteration to date.  35 galleries from as far as Seoul, Lebanon and South Africa and, for the first time, from Miami’s own Wynwood art district, shared their distinctive individual visions and beautifully curated displays featuring the best in both vintage and contemporary collectible design.

As fashion icon supreme Diana Vreeland said, “…The eye has to travel…” and mine sure did as you can see in the following video collection of photos I took there:

In attendance were notable visitors including collectors like Patricia Cisneros and Adriana Cisneros Griffin, Peter Brandt, Tico Mugrabi, Aby Rosen, Barry Friedman, Beth DeWoody, George Lindemann, Paula Crown, and Svetlana Uspenskaya, architects Zaha Hadid and David Adjaye, artists Tracey Emin, Theaster Gates, Marina Abramović and Trevor Paglen, magazine editors Glenda Bailey and Margaret Russell, model and business woman Elle Macpherson, actors Owen Wilson and Jane Fonda, gallerist Emmanuel Perrotin, designer Ron Arad, musician André 3000 Benjamin and hotelier André Balazs.

For my complete event photo/video album with over 100 photos and 3 videos, go here!

Looking further back to 2013, it was evident that this design event had set the bar for design events in the U.S.

London in September: Design x Fashion Nexus

This year all the design and fashion planets have aligned in London because The London Design Festival and London Fashion Week SS16 will overlap for several glorious days in September!

London Fashion Week kicks off first from September 18th – September 22nd with The London Design Festival starting one day later from September 19th – September 27th.

Here’s a quick look at these amazing events:

With all the scheduled shows, programs, panels and side events, those attending better take their vitamins and  up their intake of kale smoothies cause this kind of scheduling is not for the weak!
