Art Basel 2013 events: Art Basel 2013 is upon us in Miami. Art Basel has become a worldwide hit that celebrates all forms and expressions of art – something we welcome with open arms considering the appreciation for art seems to become more niche with each passing year. December 5th – December 8th Miami Beach will transform into an art lovers paradise with a projected attendance of well over 50,000 international attendees at the December 2013 Art Basel.
With Art Basel 2013 Miami comes literally dozens upon dozens of sub-events all throughout Miami – all echoing what Art Basel Miami is all about – visual art. On Thursday, December 5th the 2nd Annual Fusion Fashion & Art Show will commence at LMNT Miami from 8pm to midnight. Located in Midtown Miami, LMNT has quickly become the ‘go-to’ place for all types of artists due to LMNT’s versatility. LMNT boasts a photography studio, art gallery and a world-class recording studio and with the availability of a full bar at their disposal, it’s no secret why LMNT has become one of the top venues to host fashion shows and the like in Miami.
Hosted by well known (and absolutely stunning) South Florida model and actress Aisha Thalia, the 2nd Annual Fusion Fashion and Art Show put together by Lila Nikole and Simply Productions will feature art from Aaron Maybin and an exhibit courtesy of Laurence Gartel. Fusion Fashion & Art Show will also feature a fashion show by Miami based swimsuit designer Lila Nikole where she will be revealing her new collection inspired by Frida Kahlo, Mexican folk art and Dia De Los Muertos. DJ’s Affect, Mobius 8, Epps and Mad Linx will be on the 1’s and 2’s making sure your ears are are properly filled with positive vibes all night. $10 donations are requested at the door for entry. There is also a limited guest list available, so e-mail RSVP@LilaNikole.com to RSVP to this amazing Art Basel 2013 event.
This event recognizes the need for all forms of art to not only survive, but thrive, in our ever changing world, which is why proceeds of Fusion Fashion and Art Show are going to benefit Project Save Imagination. “the goal of Project Save Imagination is to raise funds for underprivileged children and boost public arts programs that have suffered from budget cuts,” Lila Nikole says, continuing to say “Without art, music, fashion and theater, these students are unable to fully realize their greatness and potential.” We couldn’t agree more. Even if you can’t attend, monetary and in-kind donations are always accepted and encouraged to keep this program going strong.
