It should be no surprise that a leading trend market like Miami Beach has proven a need for a fashion week to call their own. As with every year, FUNKSHION: Fashion Week Miami Beach, fuses music, fashion and like no other city in the world. This is Fashion Week - MIAMI STYLE! FUNKSHION: Fashion Week Miami Beach celebrates its 10th season with one of the most impressive line-ups in recent years. The state of the art fashion pod is built on the sand at 11th Street and Ocean Drive in Lummus Park in Miami Beach. The venue features three unique venues with a large court yard for sponsor activations in the center of it all. The court yard and main fashion venues offer real grass as FUNKSHION strongly supports Eco movement. FUNKSHION showcases spectacular fashion with Jennifer Lopez's high end line Sweetface at the Setai Hotel. In the days following opening night, FUNKSHION: Fashion Week Miami Beach will move locations to the Setai Hotel to host the world renowned designer Fisico by Cristina Ferrari from Milan, Italy . Shows will take place at the Setai Hotel with an amazing runway built directly over the pool. Other highlights in the tents on Ocean Drive are Justin Timberlakes clothing line, William Rast, the debut of Russell Simmons new Argyle line, as well as Puma, Marceau/D'Amore by Marceau, LE JEAN DE by Marith Franois Girbaud. Closing nights shows in the tents feature Heatherette (they chose this year to do only FUNKSHION: Fashion Week Miami Beach over NY's and LA's Fashion Weeks) and the Jockstarzz Fashion Show Benefiting the Kevin Everett Foundation, which will bring some of the nations biggest National Football League (NFL) players together to tackle the runway for a one-night-only charity event and fashion show. During this charity show, super producers Cool and Dre will mix it up on the runway as they debut their clothing line Dirty Royalty. Cool will also be the musical Jock Star on the wheels of steel for both the fashion show and after party.
