Fashion show brings diverse cultures to the stage

The Cubavera fashion show was ablaze with vibrant colors, diverse silhouettes and fire-infused performances that made their way down the runway last Thursday night. The showcase was done to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month, but also works to make sure that all cultures are represented at the show. Culture is multicultural It is very important for us to represent that not only Latinos want to wear Cubavera, said Perry Ellis International Director of Marketing, Luis Toro. Cubavera is a brand that represents the latin lifestyle but is catered to a multicultural audience. The evening consisted of musical performances, food and Miami style. The attendance,ambianceand brand recognition derived from having theopportunityto show Cubavera customers a new collection is priceless, Toro said. Especially when they can buy these looks right now at our Lincoln Road Cubavera retail store. While the line is geared towards men, there were a few pieces in the show that catered to women. The show highlighted the notorious resort style aesthetic that has become synonymous with Miami style. Warm and inviting two-piece linen suits breezed down the runway and vacation-inspired patterns made an appearance on most of the key pieces in the collection. Short sleeves and shorts were the stars of the evening. The Cubavera fashion show is an annual affair organized by Perry Ellis International. By Julia Samuelsjsamuels@miamitimesonline.com
