May the Fashion Force Be With You
Style-setters prepare! As part of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2012, the German luxury car maker will be chauffeuring its own version of the “fashion police” all throughout Miami in a wrapped Mercedes-Benz, dubbed the “Fashion Force.” The select group of fashion-savvy specialists will be patrolling neighborhoods of their choice, scouting for the fashion forward. If you are ‘pulled over’ by the style authorities for looking good, you will be shot (by a camera) and rewarded with a limited edition pair of Havaianas!
Miami Socialholic™ founders/ SunPost 411 and Go! columnists, will be on the Force on Sunday, July 17, from 4-6 p.m. all over South Beach. So gear up Miami, and look out- we are coming for you!
Fashion Force photos will be available in our Glam Cam next week. Be sure to log on.
