The Istituto Marangoni makes its fashionable debut in Miami.
THE OCCASION Miami got a taste of la dolce vita at the grand U.S. debut of Istituto Marangoni, one of Europe’s most renowned fashion, art and design schools. THE CROWD Campus President Hakan Baykam beamed proudly as he welcomed what one guest described as “all of Miami.” Among those in attendance were developer Craig Robins, Miami Beach Commissioner Michael Gongora, stylist Elysze Held, marketing executive Manny Machado and too many fashion bloggers and social-media-influencer types to count. THE HIGHLIGHTS The celebration began with a ribbon-cutting at the school’s Design District location and then moved to The Moore Building, where guests were treated to a fashion show by recent Marangoni alumni Ece Sahin, Claudio Potenti, Lu Xiana and Iryna Demyanchuk.-Michael Muzquiz
