Rare Sighting: Fashion Illustration Surprises In Miami with London's FIG!

Last week the Fashion Illustration Gallery located in the U.K. brought a variety of sought after illustrative artists to the Bal Harbour Shops on Miami Beach.  Nine top artists who's work has been featured in many prominent fashion magazines and at fashion week events across the globe were represented at the outdoor, three day only, mini event such as Jacky Blue, Blair Breitenstein, Rosie McGuinness, Andrea Fercilia, all below.
The event was based around an Italian theme which I had trouble sorting out as the everything seemed very average, nothing Italian anywhere to me (and I live for anything Italian in Miami.)  I believe the mainly high end stores were doing "special events" if you were on exclusive mailing lists, I was not.  When I heard of the Italian event, obviously I jumped at it, but the real highlight for me was the FIG attendance, which was more than enough as a contemporary artist and fashion illustrator.  Here are a few highlights I was able to snap photos of (in the lower evening light), and see the links below for more information.
