Flashback 2013: Craig Robins Miami Design District Hard Hat Tour

Last year, I was very honored to receive an invitation to go on a tour through the Miami Design District, showcasing the exciting construction and retail projects that are underway as well as a preview of the exhibitions/installations celebrating Art Basel Miami Beach and Design Miami, conducted by the incredible real estate developer, Craig Robins. A truly amazing experience!

From December 3 – 8, the Miami Design District will present a dynamic line-up of installations, events and environments highlighting the best artists and designers from both Miami and abroad. The range of exhibitions mix art, design, fashion and culture in striking and unusual ways – A Maison Martin Margiela collaboration with Swarovski, Berluti’s presentation of pieces by designer Maarten Baas, a TAPAS exhibition that explores Spanish design adapted to gastronomy, limited edition pieces by Paul Noble produced by The Rug Company, Wallpaper* Handmade’s exhibition with Jaguar, a presentation from Louis Vuitton of work by renowned French designer Charlotte Perriand and a diverse array of exhibitions from the KIWI Arts Group including an interactive experience featuring Goggle Glass™ (for David Datuna’s Viewpoint of Billions). The breadth and scope of the programming is a reflection of the neighborhood’s commitment to celebrate creativity in all its forms.

Also, tucked among some of the top luxury stores in the world, including Céline, Dior Homme, Hermès, Louis Vuitton and Prada, are a selection of top galleries, and private collections such as the de la Cruz Contemporary Art Space, Craig Robins Collection and Locust Projects.

Afterwards we treated to a fabulous reception at the Rooftop Garden.
