WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2015 By Anjelica Jones AN INDEPENDENT SUPPLEMENT BY MIA MEDIA & COMMUNICATIONS GROUP TO MIAMI HERALD The Art of Fashion custom made fit. Words from the designer, “My vision as a designer is to make well-made quality pieces that fit and enhance a women's confidence, wearing the style and colors she loves.” www.adjanie.com Maria Pia is a phenomenal designer that creates wearable art. Her designs are well constructed and truly unique. Each of the garments is assembled from recycled items that we encounter every day. Maria Pia is a true creator; her greatest works form numerous hues, textures and shapes. Every piece was destined to stand out and help the common eye see what fashion can really be. Words from the designer, “Fashion is an art that can be produced in many ranges such as abstraction to hyperrealism”. Join Catwalk Pros on December 2nd at Art Africa to see Adjanie’s and Maria Pia’s collection in person! www.maria-pia-art.com Adjanie Get ready for Miami’s amazing art and fashion! Catwalk Pros will be presenting Art Africa’s fashion production for their opening reception on December 2nd (see page 10 for details). Catwalk Pros brought their fabulous production Miami Fashion Launch (MFL) to the Little Haiti Cultural Center on Oct. 31st – with their theme “Saints and Sinners”. The show featured Florida designers such as Adjanie and Maria Pia. The Adjanie collection at MFL was remarkable. The items showcased were sophisticated and chic. The best part of viewing her lively collection was the color pallet chosen for her garments. The vibrant colors and shapes would make any woman feel radiant and classy. Her collection is definitely a must have!
