I remember the first time I went to a Funkshion Event in 2011. It was always a “must go see” kind of event. If you are in Fashion in Miami, chances are, you have attended. When Mercedes Benz Swim Week exited Miami, a couple years ago, there didn’t seem to be a dent in the atmosphere during mid-July. In a matter of fact, there seem to be an increase in activity.
2017 Funkshion “The Retreat”, proved that the foundation of Miami Swim Week was still there. Funkshion have become a staple of Miami Fashion, fusing Fun, Music and Fashion together. In a world that is so serious, Funkshion, as always brings a light.
One of my favorites from the retreat was “Issa de Mar,” a swim wear line designed by two designers from Oahu: Marissa Eveland and Melissa Jasni. The line featured black, earth tones, nudes with an elegant modish flair.
Funkshion? I love Funkshion, amongst the other events during Miami Swim Week. Question is, what will we expect next year?
