(NEW YORK) — Flying Solo proudly unveils its much-anticipated runway during the 2023 Miami Swim and Resort Week. With a cadre of 55 global designers, the event showcased more than 300 ensembles, all set against the alluring canvas of Miami's skyline and serene bay.
The esteemed Perez Art Museum Miami played host to this sartorial masterpiece, heralding an international celebration.
Flying Solo, renowned as the U.S.'s leading platform for independent designers, is on an upward trajectory. Representing over 300 international designers, its unique retail approach has given birth to two chic boutiques in the heart of New York's SoHo. And the world waits in anticipation for its flagship store's Parisian launch come September 1st.
The runway's allure was magnified by the artistry of the New York Makeup Academy's hair and makeup mavens, while Smart Water ensured everyone remained cool and hydrated. Styling maestro, Alina Kotsiuba, helmed the fashion direction, and collaborations with media giants like FF Channel and Fashion Week Online ensured maximum exposure.
All moments were captured through the lens of Maria Nicole.
