Hot Couture: Florida Jews on the Fashion Scene

Next date: Jun 23, 2017 - click here for time schedule - English

Floridian Jews have been involved in all aspects of the fashion industry, designing, manufacturing, dressing and influencing the local and international scene in all types of clothing from beachwear to ball gowns.

From the now- 96 year-old designer Sylvia Whyte, whose children's clothing brought the likes of Debbie Reynolds, Frank Sinatra and Zsa Zsa Gabor flocking to her Miami Beach store in the 1950s, to an 11 year-old entrepreneur now embarking on her first clothing line incorporating her grandfather's artwork into her designs, Floridian Jews have created a large footprint on this industry.

With iconic brands like Perry Ellis and Chico's; climate-influenced guayaberas, golf shirts and Florida furriers; funky wearable art and bikinis and belts made out of local snakeskins, this exhibit will surprise and inspire you.

“Village People, now is the time…Village People, your fight is mine...” 40 years ago Randy, Victor, Felipe, David, Glenn and Alexander sang those words as a call to action to an irresistible disco beat. They were the embodiment of what was attractive to the gay eye.
