According to Yves Saint Laurent, “Fashion fades but style is eternal.”

With a continued influx of classy transplants from Brazil to Russia, Miami can no longer ignore the influence of fashion conscious foreigners that are helping to give Miami a whole new attitude when it comes to clothing. In fact, for many of the moneyed foreigners moving to Miami, personal style has plain and simply surpassed fashion.

The next generation of Miami fashionistas from Latin and South America are increasing the city’s style quotient with their seemingly innate knowledge that the height of true luxury is having your own individual and cultivated personal style

Yves Saint Laurent understood the difference between fashion and style. He is credited with saying “Fashion fades, but style is eternal.” Fashion is an art. It is always changing. But style is influenced by more enduring elements – from our body shape and skin tone, to our culture or career.

Style is more than just clothing. It’s how you wear them. Miamians are beginning to follow fashion less blindly in favor of becoming consistently chic instead of just trendy. Now Miami has it all: wild trendsetters, modern fashionistas, sporty girls and boho beauties.

Miami style has never been more global or more powerful than with this new trend towards finding a connection between the clothing and ones self.
