Miami Fashion Week is back.
So is actor turned designer Antonio Banderas as honorary president.
Running from May 31 – June 4 MFW will again explore our city’s burgeoning fashion scene as well as local designers.
Officially recognized by the CFDA, this year’s shows will be so Miami — all styles will be exclusively resort.
There will be a black tie gala June 2, at the Alfred I. Dupont Building, in which Banderas will appear and Argentine singer Diego Torres will perform.
Another event to put on your radar: is the MFW bash, where Torres will also perform at Ice Palace Studios June 3 at 8:30 p.m. More info: www.miamifashionweekbash.com
Needless to say, wear your best threads.
As for Banderas, the Spanish actor is in good shape after suffering a heart attack while working out in January.
The 56-year-old star known for such movies as The Mask of Zorro, Shrek and Desperado, said that he had three stents implanted.
“It was a benign attack,” Banderas told the Associated Press in March at the Malaga Spanish Film Festival. “It hasn’t caused any permanent damage and now I’m in a recovery period. It’s something that happens every day to a lot of people. I didn’t hide it, but I didn’t want it to receive more importance than those suffered by other people.”
The “Miami Rhapsody” star blamed his health on being a “workaholic.”
Not that Banderas has slowed down.
His next acting project: playing Italian sports car entrepreneur Ferruccio Lamborghini in a biopic costarring Alec Baldwin.
