Wynwood Life is back with a vengeance and is ready to take over the streets of Miami yet again. This spectacular 3-day event blends food, music, art, and of course, fashion. Wynwood Life is a street festival that aims at bringing all that we love and adore about Wynwood to life, literally, hence its name. Wynwood Life began as a blog, yes a blog! This blog shared upcoming trends and events in the district. However, that grew into a festival in 2014. With its growing numbers Wynwood life has become a must see event.
Over 20 bands and DJs of local, Miami bands and even internationally acclaimed artists occupied the new big Live Music Stage. From Afro Beta, Miami’s own Dj Laz to YING YANG Twins was in attendance. Every second was definitely a spectacular experience.
Over 150 of Miami’s finest artist and vendors took part in the festival. The artist line up of painters, designers and illustrators that came together over the three day festival literally gave me life. The whole synergy of artists and musicians and vendors in one space was like nothing short of breathtaking.
For all my fashion junkies out there, Wynwood Life offered an amazing venue called The Style Lounge. The catwalk was lit with stunning runway shows that featured high-end couture, pop-up trunk shows and of course a girls second best friend specialty cocktails was a great accompaniment. From Thrifter and Haus Fashion to Jyork+ Dbrie Swim and Luli Fama showcase their absolutely stunning yet fierce fashion piece on the runway. My entire life was made with all the ‘slayage’ that was created. This year’s staging of Wynwood life was surely a hit. It brought to Miami high energy, vibing ambiance and the best in art, music and fashion, nothing shy of amazing.
At the food corner they had Angelo Masarin from Midtown Oyster Bar, one of the best restaurants in Miami, giving a presentation and showing guests of the festival how to make authentic Italian sea food dishes.
One other thing that we have to mention is that the event itself was absolutely free for public to get in. In my opinion the city of Miami needs more events like Wynwood life which brings people of this beautiful city together to enjoy and celebrate life.
