eptember in South Florida is all about luxe living and the style, sexiness and sophistication for which our city is known. This month kicks off on September 10 with the second-annual Fashion’s Night Out, a global extravaganza celebrating designers and retailers from around the world. Soirées and shows will be held at boutiques all over Miami, and this year Ocean Drive is partnering with the Village of Merrick Park to host an evening of glamour, beginning with a multilevel runway show at Neiman Marcus.
Then, on September 21, fashionistas will flock to all of the most fabulous hotels and lounges as our ninth-annual Fall Fashion Week Presented by Bing hits its stride. With five nights of runways and cocktails, the week will once again be the biggest fashion event of the year.
Finally, on September 26, we invite you to trade stilettos for sneakers as we welcome our own Miami Dolphins back to Sun Life Stadium to play their first home game, against the New York Jets.
And speaking of sports, we can’t pass up this opportunity to congratulate the Miami Heat on securing LeBron James and Chris Bosh to join Dwyane Wade as a power trio like no other in basketball. We’re all extremely excited to see what the season will bring.
Enjoy Ocean Drive’s annual Fall Fashion Issue.
