Yup, there are two fashion weeks strutting it out in Miami Beach.

Funkshion Fashion Week Miami Beach is taking place March 20 - 22 in tents set up in Collins Park at 21st Street and Collins Avenue (between the W and Setai Hotels).

Just a few block east at the Miami Beach Convention Center is Miami Fashion Week. CLICK HERE FOR POST ON THAT.

The big differences? Well, Funkshion's organizers have always maintained that their spate of catwalk capers is more about clothes that can be found on store racks now. And Funkshion allows the general public to attend free of charge as long as they RSVP by emailing
