Miami International Fashion Week, the largest Latin American and international fashion event in the U.S., has wrapped up its 12th annual event with the ever-fabulous Miami Moda & Music Awards show featuring celebrity hosts Ileana Garcia and Orlando Léon; Special Guest Designer Silvia Tcherassi received the 1st annual Victoria Puig de Lange International Style Award; and 500+ guests were entertained with a special live performance by international recording star Marala.

Declared the official fashion week for the City of Miami by Mayor Tomas Regalado, MIFW took place March 18–21 at the Shops at Midtown in Miami's trendy Wynwood District and was presented by Wellaflex, Stella Artois and Copa Airlines. Celebrities who attended this year included music legend Emilio Estefan. The Awards presenters included actor/model Vincent De Paul, Bravo TV's Sandra Madiji and Pablo Hernandez, Tiffany & Co.'s Henry Gonzalez, and popular personalities Elaine Lancaster, Rodner Figueroa, Sixto Nolasco, and Hamlet Garcia.

In addition to dozens of Spring collections revealed on the runway, MIFW held international competitions in fashion, photography and graphic arts with entries and finalists from all over the world.
