Being at Miami Beach International Fashion Week allowed me an opportunity to see designers from all over the world. The two collections shown in today's post exemplify the beauty of being inspired by one's cultural/national identity and tying it into fashion design. Mariela Allaix collection, from Argentina, seen above, hit the runway showing off expert craftsmanship and intricate knitting skills. The collection is based on Argentinian typical country clothes emphasizing a different fashion style loaded with national identity and a touch of urban elegance. The next collection to debut was by Russian-born designer Marina Makaron, Marina Makaron Moscow. The colors and prints where vibrant and eye-popping, and could easily be worn in South Florida. Hints of Marina's roots were visible in the beautiful head scarfs.
