Funkshion's designer fashion shows return to Miami Beach

It's the return of the runway with Funkshion: Fashion Week Miami Beach starting up again this Sunday, March 22 and continuing through Thursday, March 26.

The five-day spate of designer-label catwalk capers is also a part of Miami Beach's 100th birthday.

"Funkshion is happy to celebrate Miami Beach's centennial by promoting local artists and designers,” says Sale Stojanovic, president of Funkshion: Fashion Week Miami Beach and one of its co-founders.

He continues: “We are doing so by throwing five days of events in the heart of Miami Beach. The kickoff event will be on March 22nd at the Centennial Celebration Arena with a fashion show by local swimwear designer, Liliana Montoya. Celebrations will continue throughout the week with exhibitions and performances by local musicians and artists such as Magnus Sodamin, celebrity stylist Calyann Barnett, Miami Style Mafia and the students of Miami International University of Art and Design."
