Miami Beach events

MIAMI (USA) - Funkshion Productions is excited to announce that Swim Fashion Week will once again heat up Miami Beach from July 13 – 17, 2016. A year after taking over the production of the hottest swimwear shows, Funkshion continues to present the exclusive tent venue of the runway shows for swim week. “This season is especially important as we evolve Swim Fashion Week to showcase the brightest talent in the industry today,” said Sale Stojanovic, partner and co-founder of Funkshion Productions. “Designers from all over the globe are choosing to showcase their brands in Miami Beach because of the growth of the trade shows and media focus.


That has inspired us to innovate and offer the most creative options for the brands to tell their stories. This is the future of the industry and we are thrilled to be able to continue to bring the energy and excitement back another year.” It’s only natural that Miami, a place with summer all year around, would be the ideal choice for the swimsuit industry’s biggest event of the year. All the major labels come out to play and young up-and-coming designers vie for a spot to get their suits into the eyes of the fashion elite. Nearly fifty designers show off their latest and greatest in the Mercedes-Benz tents alone. Across the city dozens of designers participate in satellite events that are organized by independent organizations.

Some of the biggest names in fashion show their swim collections during Swim Week. One year, Chanel put together a crew of synchronized swimmers and Chloe has started regularly showing on a runway atop the pool of the hyper-exclusive Soho Beach House. Like any fashion event, it’s just as much about the parties and sponsorships, the red carpet and the street style as it is the main event. Miami Beach’s club, venues and hip eateries are packed with the jet-set crew of models, editors, photographers, writers and designers. It’s late July and that means it’s hot, hot, hot in Miami. While it’s all about the clothes at any fashion show, this is probably the fashion event of the year with the least amount of clothes.

Under The Tents - The scene is a familiar one for the international fashion set: the champagne flows, well-dressed show-goers sit and chat about the latest industry gossip, photographers snap pictures of the very best dressed. Designers with cult-followings like Mara Hoffman, Roxy Pop Surf, Suboo, Wildfox Swim and more take to the tents and show off what the swim scene will look like for the next year.

You’re Invited - Fashion parties and events are notoriously exclusive, but there are some events that you’re invited to whether or not you have VIP status in the fashion world. Every year the parties change and the locations are never the same, so you’ll have to do some research, but there have been some pretty spectacular, and free, events open to the public in the past. At Sagamore Hotel, they had free makeup by Bobbi Brown and a pool party complete with snow cones. SLS South Beach has hosted the Peroni Emerging Designer Series, a showcase of young designers that was open to the public. The Freehand Miami, a hip hostel, has a pool and a great bar that are always open to the public and they have been known to host a pretty awesome, and totally free party for Swim Week. The Standard Miami’s always cool pool deck hosted some very fabulous events for young designers that were open to the public.

Late night, the chicest bars and clubs around the city are packed with the best DJs who have flown in for parties hosted by cool brands and packed with swimsuit models.

Bruce Orosz, president, and his team at ACT are developing a visionary event securing major acts in music and show business to participate - honoring the serious history Miami Beach has and continues to play in the music, art, film, theater and TV world for the last 100 years and going forward.

Our team is currently developing the biggest entertainment event in Miami Beach’s history which will feature the most significant iconic figures to have contributed to the fabric of the City. We look forward to welcoming you to join our city and be a part of this historic series of event celebrating 100 years of our legacy. Sincerely, Philip Levine - Mayor, City of Miami Beach

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day Parade – Miami January 18, 2016 - The most visible figure in the Civil Rights movement, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is honored across the country annually on the third Monday in January with Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Born January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia, the holiday falls close to his birthday.

As chief spokesman of the movement to end racial discrimination in state and federal laws in the 1950s and 1960s, King organized several marches and peaceful protests. In 1963, he organized the famous March on Washington, which was memorialized in 2013 by President Barack Obama on its 50th anniversary. It was then that King delivered his famous "I Have A Dream" speech.


A year later, on October 14, 1964, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolence. Tragically, on April 4, 1968 he was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee at the young age of 39.
Posthumously, King was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal, and we observe Martin Luther King, Jr. Day annually to honor his courageous work towards freedom and equality. The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial was erected in Washington, D.C. in 2011 with a sculpture and inscription that reads, "Out of a mountain of despair, a stone of hope." The quote is from his "I Have A Dream" speech.

A Miami Celebration Honoring Dr. King - Miami joins in this federal holiday with the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Parade in Liberty City. The parade takes place along NW 54th Street on a route from NW 12th Avenue to NW 32nd Avenue. It ends with a celebration at Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Park.

Parade-goers can expect high school marching bands, athletes and cheerleaders on foot, floats, cars and fire trucks bearing local politicians, union leaders and activists-and, for a Caribbean Miami twist, Carnival dancers take it to the streets in a colorful dance and music performance. Once the parade reaches the park, revelers can enjoy food, activities for kids, and a variety of vendors and entertainment.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is an important time to reflect on the journey our nation has taken towards freedom and equality, and to look at the work that still lies ahead. As King said, "The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice."

On this day in Miami, and across the nation, we honor and strive towards his dream.
