With the ghoulish theme in full effect and zombie-lovers left free to roam, the room was filled with people in blooded shirts, the ever popular corset, perfectly... Read More →

Fashion Show Review: Fox House Clothing at The Stage, February 10th

For the modern woman with a distinctive style, the clothing they wear is an essential mode of self-expression. Even for the grab-and-go type of girl, everyone looks for one element that makes them stand out. To develop the concept for her site, Tobi Salver said, The name Fox was derived from the fact that they are not pack animals and are opportunistic feeders; which translates into what I want my clothes to represent: individuality and uniqueness for the women who wear them. On a balmy Thursday... Read More →

Trend Report: Winter 2010

The winter season has surprised us once again with more than just a week’s worth of colder days.

In the midst of the Art Basel buzz, the three-year long collaboration with McQueen, known for his eccentric silhouettes and imaginative designs, arrives at The Rug Company in the Miami Design District. Jonathan Day, a senior salesperson, said, “He wasn’t... Read More →
