The Stars Came Out In Full Fashion At Miami Art Week 2023
Miami Art Week Powered By Art Hearts Fashion went down as one of the most iconic yet with four-days of fashion shows, art exhibitions, and parties during Art Basel to celebrate creativity and fashion during the world’s biggest global art festival.
The grand saga began on December 7, 2023 at Fabel Miami Rooftop with a VIP dinner and fashion show where designers Giannina Azar, Julia Colquitt, and Lybethras showcased their 2024 collections. Celebrity fashion designer Azar has most famously had her stunning couture ensembles worn by Beyoncé on her Renaissance album as well as dressed the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani, and dozens more. Together, we celebrated fashion and dreams as Art Hearts Fashion intertwined fashion, music, and artistry together under the moonlight and stars.

On December 8, 2023 the night commenced at Kiki On The River where the moonlight reflected on the river and we witnessed risqué & fresh runway shows from Lila Nikole, Mister Triple X, Black Tape Project by Drakhan Blackhart. VIPs were invited to an exclusive yacht party on the river with the models as guests immersed themselves in the boho-chic atmosphere, where Greek food and fashion was enchanting.
On December 9, 2023 The Vessel and Kings Of The Sea hosted a Nautical Art Gallery Experience by Oliver Gal Art. Guests explored the intersection of luxury and art as The Vessel proudly partnered with the celebrity-loved art brand Oliver Gal Art to transform The Vessel into a nautical art gallery like no other. Guests grooved to the beats of the curated DJ sets by Gindhart B2B Mount and NES as the sun set over the city and all enjoyed the ambiance of the floating masterpiece. The Vessel offers a truly iconic setting that elevated the art experience to new heights while guests enjoyed the art, as well as a refreshing welcome drink from 100% Coconut, cocktail courtesy of SelvaRey Rum and London Essence, Charro Beer, Evian, and light bites.
