South Beach Style

The Fashion Group International South Florida celebrated the business of fashion with a private VIP Ready-To-Wear Trends Fall/Winter 2017 showing, starring Shireen Sandoval (Deco Drive Co-host), her awesome stylist Jacqueline Kawarasky, and Tara Gilani (The Trend Tracker). Our event was hosted by Deco Drive, 7 News Miami, and Tolga KavutPhotography. We had the most amazing time thanks to the oh so chic venue – The Betsy Hotel.

L-R: Viviana Gabeiras, Joe DePiro, Lily Noches, Charlene Parsons, Laura Ganoza, Shireen Sandoval, Tara Gilani, Jackie Kawarsky, Natasha Liddie-Peets, Tammy Apostol, Tim Clark.


The event started with a net-working brunch in The Betsy Hotel lobby. Attendees treated themselves to flavorful pastries, fruit, yogurt, coffee, tea, and bubbly. There were photo ops and filming for Deco Drive.

Afterwards the Fashion group influencers gathered in a viewing room for the Fall/Winter 2017 showing American and European Ready-To-Wear Collections, including apparel, accessories and beauty. It was exciting to see all the new looks for fall and winter from major designers!

After the show, Shireen and Jackie did a Question and Answer about all the latest trends. Our event aired on Deco Drive.
