Taking place Tuesday, May 31 through Sunday, June 5, the 22nd edition of Miami Fashion Week will be held in person -- a first in two years -- across various locations throughout Miami, including Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, Seaspice, Gary Nader Art Center, and the Frost Science Museum.

The week-long schedule will combine fashion, culture, art and sustainability, kicking off on Tuesday, May 31 with a press conference at Miami's East Hotel, a LEED certified hotel with a focus on sustainable practices -- in line with the show's focus on sustainability, according to organisers.

"With the pandemic showcasing the importance and necessity of sustainable fashion practices to limit supply chain disruptions and the effects of the fashion industry on the environment, Miami Fashion Week is dedicated to investing all the necessary resources into spotlighting the role of sustainability during global fashion weeks to ensure the growth and future of the industry," said organisers in a statement.

As for the line-up, this season will feature a roster of international designers, including Italian luxury brand Missoni, which will showcase its womenswear collection on Wednesday, June 1 at the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens. 

Other designers Naeem Khan, Benito Santos, Angel Sanchez, Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada and Rene by RR will also debut their latest resort collections throughout the week.

To close the event, a Miami Fashion Week Green and Tech Gala will take place on June 4 with a sustainability roundtable and closing brunch on June 5.
