"Fashion at the speed of life"

Isabel Toledo

Funkshion is a fashion event that occurs three times a year in Miami showcasing fall, resort and spring fashions all with a rock edge. The idea of the event is to combine music with fashion and for spring, the Miami vibe of bright bold colors were present while only the patricians were dressed in form fitting attire. The fashion week started with a bang featuring the spring collection from Isabel Toledo. The event opened with a lifetime achievement award presented by Vanidides Magazine (a fashion magazine of South America).

Spring 2012 Collection

We hope to see more of Isabel Toledo who was made famous by the gorgeous brocade green coat and dress that Michelle Obama wore during the inauguration. Oddly, it took twenty years for Toledo to enter the public eye and after viewing this collection, I must say we definitely missed out. The spirit of Miami was present in bright colors, form hugging shapes and plunging necklines. Lace was printed in unusual patterns, bold colors and metallic.

The music was playful but not a fast beat allowing the models to flow across the runway and gave ample picture opportunities. The night was flaked with free drinks and hors d’ oeuvres as the event was sponsored by Cover girl and Pantene. Isabel Toledo had this to say about her collection on the next installment of Funkshion.
