In Florida The Miami Design District has been the in place to go to purchase fine art and interior design grade furniture and accessories for decades. Decorators, designers, and their customers shopped these hip and fashionable shops in the “District’ and enjoyed quality, variety, competitive, sometimes wholesale pricing for their homes and offices. Plug the name into your GPS and find it located just off I-95. near the Causeway. It has been in the same location for decades but has recently undergone a major facelift with the addition of new and exciting stores like Gucci, Givenchy, Cartier, Bulgari, Louis Vitton, Max Mara, and many other chic stores and gourmet restaurants. The experience of shopping at the Miami Design District is very similar to shopping up the coast on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach or across the state in Sarasota at St. Armands Circle. Browsing these fine stores is an experience at all locations and buying leaves a fond memory in your mind forever.
The “District” has reoriented itself. There are still fashionable furniture and accessories stores and art galleries but now it offers the addition of designer clothing and personal accessories. There is something for everyone to enjoy here.
Miami is fast becoming one of the most fashionable cities in the world. It has a long-held tourist reputation for wonderful beaches and warm waters, great fishing and diving and shopping. And now with the Perez Art Museum of Miami headquartered nearby, shopping and dining in the “District” have become an essential part of the Miami cultural experience.
While in the “District” keep your eyes open for the glitterati of Miami. The Miami-Ft. Lauderdale area has attracted the greatest number of celebrities east of California. If you don’t see a celeb, you’ll see dozens who look like or should be celebrities among the numbers of people enjoying the experience. You could see Kate Hudson at Chrome Hearts or Robins walking down the street or shopping for diamonds next to you at Harry Winston.
Be on the alert for Bentleys and Rolls and whoever may be inside, but most of all enjoy this unique shopping experience. Wear light and white fashionable clothes and become a part of this exciting international city.
