Underground Lauderdale Fashion Weekend is a partnership with the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau’s Office of Film, Music, Entertainment and Creative Industries. 

“Underground Lauderdale fashion encompasses a style of bohemia. It’s progressive in terms of our fashion sensibility, yet mysterious, daring and reflective of our destination’s creative culture,” said Noelle Stevenson, Vice President of the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward Office of Film, Music, Entertainment and Creative Industries.

 The fashion program will be anchored by world-class partners including national millennial organizations IVY and Create & Cultivate, along with some of fashion’s biggest luminaries including Nina Garcia, Nicole Miller, and Susanne Bartsch.

 Marie Claire’s Creative Director, Lifetime’s Project Runway Judge and all-around renowned Fashion Expert Nina Garcia, will host Friday night’s festivities March 31. This includes headlining designer runway show featuring Nicole Miller’s Spring 2017 Collection taking place at Fort Lauderdale’s red-hot arts district called FATVillage in an 8,000 sq. ft. raw space (523 NW 1st Avenue, Fort Lauderdale), followed by an after party at Ft. Lauderdale hot spot, VIBE Las Olas. Nicole Miller will be showing pieces from her widely-praised Spring 2017 collection. The assortment will feature styles inspired by Panamanian art and culture, reflected in hand-finished beading, embroideries, and bright festive prints.

 “I am thrilled to be participating in Underground Lauderdale Fashion Week showing my Spring 2017 line! What better place to show bright, playful and stylish clothing than in Fort Lauderdale?” says Nicole Miller.

We are pretty excited as well. For additional information and to get your tickets click here

Featured

Jazz in the Gardens has easily become the City of Miami Gardens’ premiere entertainment event. For the past 11 years, Jazz in the Gardens has celebrated diversity, culture and art through various genres of music. This year we’re excited to see some of the hottest, most talented performers in music at the festival including: Jill Scott, LL COOL J, ft. DJ Z-Trip, Common, The Roots, Andra Day, Herbie Hancock, Morris Day & The Time, Robin Thicke, Esperanza Spalding, Betty Wright, Smokie Norful and the JITG All Stars – Chantae Moore, Will Downing and Marion Meadows.

So it is not as if you need any more reasons to attend this year but here are three reasons you should consider attending. 


1. Enjoy some of the best cuisine Miami has to offer 

     At this point Reed’s conch and fritter salad has become a staple of the Jazz in the Gardens experience. But there is always the amazing opportunity to discover other local restaurants. One of our past favorites has been Lovely’s on The Go a culinary experience that will always have our loyalty. So the opportunity to explore and experience hidden Miami gems paired with Jazz in The Garden staples are enjoyably endless.  
2. Noteworthy experience: Laughter and “Feel Good Music

     This will be the third year that Rickey Smiley will be returning as the host of Miami’s ultimate musical festival. We are literally preparing our bodies for the laughter paired with a majestic musical experience. We are one hundred percent certain that we are in for a few euphoric days. 


3. Sound worthy music

     The musical line-up needs no introduction and we can honestly say that we are a fan of every artist.
