When you want to show off your clothing designs and get some excellent exposure one of the best ways to do it is to host a fashion show displaying your clothing line. This is the way all of the big designers started their careers.
One the most important elements of putting on as flawless fashion show is picking the perfect venue to have it at. You want to choose a company that is experienced in hosting events like yours, and that is well known in the community. Soho Studios in the Wynwood District is an excellent site to choose. It is well known in the community for its successful events. They host a variety of high profile events such as charity events, fashion photography, parties and formals, and many successful fashion shows, especially during Fashion Week. They have a superb rental space available and will provide you with professional accommodations.
There is a lot to do before Fashion Week, and exposure is the key to success for up and coming, and experienced designers as well. Miami is a great place to get started. Having a Miami fashion show could be the key to your success. This is not an easy task, you have to have a workable plan, and dedicated sponsors will help too.
Your entire plan and schedule of events should be in place long before the show. You will need plenty of time to put together your models, clothing, makeup artists, marketing and advertising, and your budget. Your budget may change as you plan your event, do not plan to stick strictly to your budget, leave room for flexibility.
You should then choose the theme of your venue, think of the type and design of your clothing line and try to draw inspiration from it. If your clothes are not in line with the atmosphere of your show it will be distracting to the guests. You want your show to flow smoothly from start to finish. This will include the décor of the event area as well as the music that you may have. It should all work together.
Of course you will need assistance with all of the preparation; you may be able to find people who are interested in fashion, art, makeup, etc. that would be willing to donate their time in return for the experience and knowledge they will get from assisting you. You do want to save money with volunteers, but do not forget the importance of having some paid professionals in place. They will be the ones that you will rely the most on to guide the volunteers, and this will relieve you of having to watch every second of the planning process as well as, and most importantly, the day of the show.
