On July 20 at the Funkshion Fashion Tents, 20 carefully selected fashion design students from the Miami International University of Art and Design (MIU) presented one super sized individual couture creation to compete for this year’s $5000 scholarship presented by the Cabrera/Bentancout Organization comprised of a coalition of McDonald’s owners in the Southern Florida Districts. @McD_SouthFLA
THE BUZZ??? To CREATE THE MOST FAB McD COUTURE SWIM RESORT COLLECTION made entirely of McDONALD’s packaging!! … And so they did.
So what would a Swim Show be without a Kaftan robe or two in the mix.. Try these on for size. These long full length resort style robed kaftans make you forget you just ate your lunch out of them..
Perfectly designed trends to match this year’s raves in womens and mens street style and resort style selections. The mens vests for HIM to match HER are the perfect swap at any pool lounge bbq both sides of the Mississippi and beyond…
As you could imagine, the competition was fierce with these selections but as promised there would be one receiver to this year’s scholar and it went to MIU student Pablo Machado Palomeque with his Winged Angel inspired McD Couture framework matched with a Head Bonnet to make any teaparty attendee envious!! With more than a smile this McBabe had more than a Happy Meal to go.
