Who would have thought models and pizza would make such beautiful music together??? Well, so did we!
This past week we were busy lil bees supplying our organic goodies to a fashionably hip (and apparently starved of great pizza) crowd for this years "FUNKSHION: Miami Fashion Week". The 5 day event is a wonderful mash-up of Green Fashion, Music and the who's-who of both! It took place under the sunny skies of South Beach Miami in a tent erected on the sand just off of Ocean Drive!
Pizza Fusion was the official food sponsor of the event and we were onsite for all 5 days serving the beautiful people delicious 100% organic pizza, salads, wraps and fruit. What really attracted us to get involved was that this year's event kicked off with an eco-friendly fashion show that was actually a fashion show within the event itself. This year was the first year of "Green Fashion Miami" and featured designers who showcased their collections of recycled, eco-friendly, funkshional runway designs with the hot, eclectic styles of Latin infused trends. They even went as far as having the models use only organic styling products and makeup.
The annual Winter Music Conference was also in full-swing and added to the star-studded cast of "celebrities" that were in attendance. Receiving tons of media attention for his number one hit single “Whatever You Like”, T.I. www.trapmuzik.com gave everyone a glimpse of his glamorous new line under the big tents. (Also known for “Swagger Like Us” which exhibits the cool sounds of T.I. and M.I.A. as well his collaboration with Rihanna on “Live Your Life” which just received the Vodaphone Australian Awards, T.I. is proving that there is more than meets the eye.) Other Highlights of this year's FUNKSHION: Fashion Week Miami Beach included the launch of Little Louie Vega's new line; Krelwear, presented by Gen-Art and a mixed fashion collection runway show of designers from around the world presented by Curve.
It was a great event and we were honored to be a part of it. Serving delicious organic food to the masses is why we do what we do!
