From being welcomed into the home studio of fashion designer Lisu Vega to spending a sunny afternoon in Wynwood with artist Magnus Sodamin, we immediately felt the warmth of Miami’s residents. While the city is sprawling, the art and design community is as close-knit as ever, cultivating a supportive environment for talent to thrive. As fashion designer Julian Chang explains, there’s room to grow in Miami, and those who stay are shaping the future.
While beautifully preserved Art Deco buildings give rise to glamorous daydreams, new visionaries are bringing their ideas to the 305. Just look at the interior design developments that David Rockwell has in store for Nobu Hotel at Eden Roc Miami Beach. Meanwhile, wanderlust-inspired boutique hotels like Circa 39 are enticing a whole new generation of explorers.
