**I can’t post the photos I took with the designers or the performers yet because a professional took them and he hasn’t posted them on his website yet. I will post them when he does. :)
Saturday night opened up with a fashionably (2 hour) late entrance. The Miami Moda & Music Awards presented the groups of models, who before milled for photos during the press conference, were now ready to strut.
Designer, Ema Savahl, opened up the show with her couture line for women. The earthy and animalistic vibes transcended off the runway in cat-like body suits and blood red tones. Fully coated in a dose of lace, femininty was also key. Black, neutral, ruby, and even dashes of blue and white were the main hues for the classic beauty of her line.
~ BACKGROUND INFO ON EMA SAVAHL: Aside from her collection last night, her style has reached notable recognition. Her designs have been seen on red carpets from Hollywood to Cannes, and have been worn by celebrities including Katy Perry and Sofia Vergara.
Supermodel and face of Lancome Russia, Dasha Protsenka, then performed her hit single “Perfect Girl”. The glitz and glamour of the dubstep heavy song helped bring life to the runway. I was able to see her rehearsal during the half hour before the press conference. The small group we were (photographers and videographers, models, volunteers, reporters, and designers) were all seated watching the preparations of the show to come.
Awards of the night were then being given out. Among the many were the “Top Model Award”, which was given to Alexandra, and “Designers’ Choice Award” which was given to Pedro Cueva for his designer mens suits.
Then, Spain’s hottest vocal group – D’Nash performed some of their hit singles. The spanish ballads were completely swoon worthy (as were the three members) who were absolutely so sweet while taking pictures after the show.
Finally the main showcase designer, Venezuelan Nicolas Felizola, presented his line of gorgeous red-carpet gowns. They represented old glamour and beauty with elaborate glitz designs. These then (after a short clip) edged into the “New Era” of fashion which showcased the modern design influence of today.
