Petit Fours will include Macaroons, Lemon Poppy, mocha, Pate de fruit, Mango, Raspberry, Chocolate, Cookie Dough and Passionfruit.
For those who stay for the evening, Interview Magazine and OHWOW are teaming up for a cocktail party on the roof of The Boulan South Beach at 1030pm. The party will bring together 350 of the country’s most notable art, film and fashion fixtures to interact with G-Star Raw Crossovers and dance the night away to sounds from DJ Dunks.
If you have plans to venture to other events on Miami Beach, Flaunt Magazine is pulling out all the stops for their “Affordable Care’ event at Mana Wynwood with artists Ben Jones, Melanie Pullen, David LaChapelle, Robert Montgomery, Petra Cortwright, Greg Lotus, Vance Lorenezini, Yung Jake, Jeanette Hayes, Mary Ellen Mark, Bert Stern, Hunter and Gatti and Paul Solomons. The VIP only event will feature a Vanessa Beecroft and Kanye West Performance Piece. West and Beecroft worked together often in the past: She led the art direction for Kanye’s short film for Runaway, as well as private listening parties for 808s and Heartbreak. Most recently, she acted as artistic director for the Yeezus tour, as well as choreographer. The theme of the “Affordable Care” show is the discrepancy between those two ideas and how they might interact or contradict.
