Day of fashion
Last year Miami made history by having the first ever 24-hour fashion show on Lincoln Road hosted by Giuliana Rancic of E! News. The show, live streamed on MTV, featured 1,440 different looks—one per minute—to celebrate the so-called Fabric of Our Lives. Its back on March 1 and 2; this time called Cotton’s 24 Hour Runway Show: Road to the Runway. It’s unclear if new mom Rancic is taking the helm again.
Style Squads are traveling the nation in search of six people with inspirational style. At 11 a.m. Friday, they will be on the corner of Meridian Avenue and Lincoln Road looking for the best local style (13 and up please). Info: cotton24hours.thefabric
