Miami Design District’s Fourth Annual Fashion Strikes Cancer Benefit

The Miami Design District hosted the Fourth Annual Fashion Strikes Cancer benefit at the Moore Building in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The event was founded and hosted by fashion visionary, stylist and breast cancer survivor Angeles Almuna to commemorate her battle with cancer and give hope to those who are experiencing, have suffered or lost a loved one to cancer.


This year’s memorable event honored Breast Cancer Research Foundation Co-Chair and breast cancer survivor Kinga Lampert. Guests enjoyed a variety of event elements, including a photography exhibition curated by Angeles called Selfless, showcasing 36 women who inspired her during her most challenging times throughout her journey projected onto two flower-shaped installations at the center of the venue.


Moreover, Istituto Marangoni Miami donated a spectacular dress inspired by Roberto Capucci’s couture vintage Butterfly Dress that was on display for guests to admire. The dress was inspired by femininity, class, elegance and the metaphor of the butterfly --a creature that gracefully transforms into a new body. The night gave way to touching speeches by host Angeles Almuna and honoree Kinga Lampert, which were followed by a stellar performance by Venezuelan singer and songwriter Manu Manzo.
