More than 100 student designers to show collections on March 21

[Miami, FL   March 11, 2013] More than 100 future fashion designers from Miami International University of Art & Design will present their collections in the University’s Annual Student Fashion Show, Style 2013, as part of Funkshion Fashion Week Miami Beach. On Thursday, March 21, 2013, at 12 noon, the Collins Park Fashion Tent on 21st Street and Collins Avenue will open its doors to ticket holders, and the first models of Style 2013 will strut down the runway promptly at 1 pm. Advanced ticket purchase is required. For more information on tickets, please call 305.428.5960. Tickets will not be sold at the event.

Each year Miami International University of Art & Design’s Associate of Arts and Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Design students put all their hard work and original design ideas into creating unique pieces for the University’s Annual Student Fashion Show hoping to be recognized by the fashion industry experts who will serve as judges. As the Fashion students let their creativity, talent and skill speak for itself on the runway, Associate of Arts in Accessory Design students will welcome guests into the tent with their own collection – an accessory design exhibit featuring leather boots and shoes, handmade bags and jewelry, while students in the Bachelor and Associate of Arts in Fashion Merchandising programs will showcase their talents with a floral display exhibit.

Fashion Design winners will be selected by the judges for their collections in various categories, including collection, editorial, evening, style, trend, sportswear, avant garde, ready to wear, cocktail and menswear. Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design student Gustavo Alonso, who recently won the grand prize of a $10,000 scholarship from The Diet Coke Young Designer Challenge, will be one of the designers showcasing their collections.

More than 20 of the world's top designers premiere the new styles and silhouettes in their seasonal collections at Funkshion Fashion Week Miami Beach (http://www.facebook.com/funkshionfw#!/funkshionfw). “For our fashion department, it is a distinct honor to showcase our students’ talents at Funkshion Fashion Week Miami Beach.
