I was lucky enough to attend Metropolitan International Fashion Week in Miami this past Friday. My best friend/roommate, Maria, was a model walking in Yvette Elfawal's show, so my other best friend/roommate, Christie, and I went down to Miami to watch and support Maria.
Yvette Elfawal has also shown her most recent collection (Fall/Winter 2013) at New York Fashion Week in February. Yvette uses a lot of detailing with rope around the bodice of her pieces. It looks both unique and sophisticated. But my absolute favorite pieces were the long gowns with feathered fabric. From a distance, the texture looks just like feathers, but once you get closer, you can see the small pieces of fabric that make the bottom look flowy and feather-light.
The other designers who were also showing on Friday night were: Dancing Dolls, Kirsten Regalado Gowns, Agragrami Fashion House, and Beautiful People Couture. Although they were all amazing designers, Yvette was my favorite of the night.
Here are some photos (taken with my iPhone) from Friday night. Sorry for the horrible quality!
My outfit for the fashion show:
Blue Dress - Fashion Star from H&M
Black Wedges - Target
Pink Floral Statement Necklace - Ebay
After the show. These were my two favorite looks, but I would die to have the light pink gown.

And of course, I had to be a tourist and visit the Dash store on Saturday morning before we left.
Have you ever been to the Metropolitan International Fashion Week? What do you think of Yvette's designs?
