In addition to Missoni, the 22nd edition of Miami's longest-running fashion event will showcase designers Naeem Khan, Benito Santos, Ángel Sánchez, Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada and René Ruiz, who will be presenting their latest resort collections from May 31 to June 5.

Miami Fashion Week’s runways shows will be staged in some of the city's most iconic sites, like Vizcaya, the palace built in 1916 for tycoon James Deering, and the roof terrace of the Patricia and Phillip Frost Science Museum, with a breath-taking view of Vizcaya Bay.

Another venue will be the Gary Nader Art Center, a museum/art gallery home to an important collection of Latin American art.

Missoni, world-renowned for its knitwear, will show its latest collection on June 1 at the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, while Spanish designer Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada will show on June 3 at the Gary Nader Art Center.

The same venue, located in the Wynwood district, well-known for its art galleries and open-air street art, featuring works by leading urban artists, will host shows by Mexican designer Benito Santos and by Ángel Sánchez from Venezuela, both on June 2, while Miami-based and Cuban-born René Ruiz will present his RR label on June 3.

The last show, by Indian-American designer Naeem Khan, will take place on June 4 at the Frost Science Museum.

The Miami Fashion Week events will blend together fashion, culture, art and sustainability.

Miami Fashion Week, whose honorary president is Spanish actor Antonio Banderas, is focused on highlighting the role of sustainability in ensuring the fashion industry’s future growth.
