The SAUVAGE concept store completely encompasses my favourite type of dress -! It reminds me a lot of Browns Focus in London, edgy design talent showcased in one place.

Rodarte, Christopher Kane, Marios Schwab, Irfe, Willow, Kaufman Franco are among them. Other featured brands are: Balmain, Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Rick Owens.

Turchin - Miami Design District

Ever since I travelled to Thailand I have become obsessed with embroidery, the more colourful stitching the better! Turchin Jewellery shop in Miami Design District has a cultural influence that the Miami fashion scene is crying out for. The jewellery is so unique and precious however the bags are what excited me the most - each bag is made out of the best quality leathers and hand stitched with over 100 hours of manual craftsmanship, justifying the expensive price tag (some bags costing up to 3000 dollars)!
Turchin are looking to open a store in London watch out!

United Nude - Miami Design District

Miami Design District pays homage to the concept store. Three surprisingly quiet streets away from the usual tourist haunts are filled with quirky boutiques and stand alone designer brands.
One particular store that caught my eye was 'United Nude' a footwear brand that also has flagship stores in New York, Amsterdam and Shanghai. The open plan gallery layout is used to promote art work, 'United Nude products are about clear concepts, elegance and innovation'.
