Miami Fashion Week announced Wednesday its return to the runway circuit this month after taking a two-year break due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which caused many in-person fashion events to be canceled over the past 24 months.
From Tuesday, May 31 through Sunday, June 5, the 22nd edition of Miami Fashion Week will be held in-person for the first time in two years at various Miami venues, including the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, Seaspice, the Gary Nader Art Center and the Frost Science Museum.
The week-long program will combine fashion, culture, art and sustainability, and will kick off on Tuesday, May 31, with a press conference at Miami’s East Hotel, a LEED-certified hotel focused on sustainable practices, in keeping with the event’s focus on sustainability, according to organizers.
«With the pandemic showing the importance and necessity of sustainable fashion practices to limit supply chain disruptions and the effects of the fashion industry on the environment, Fashion Week Miami has set out to invest all the resources necessary to highlight the role of sustainability during global fashion weeks to ensure the growth and future of the industry,» organizers said in a statement.
In terms of programming, this season will feature a variety of international designers, including Italian luxury brand Missoni, which will present its womenswear collection on Wednesday, June 1 at the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens.
Other designers, such as Naeem Khan, Benito Santos, Angel Sanchez, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada and Rene by RR, will also present their latest collections throughout the week.
To close the event, a Miami Fashion Week Green and Tech Gala will be held on June 4, with a panel discussion on sustainability and a closing brunch on June 5.
