Miami definitely had a presence during NYC fashion week this season.  South Beach-based fashion show producers and owners of Funkshion: Fashion Week Miami,(which is scheduled for the week of October 20) Sale Stojanovic and Matt Heien, collaborated to produce and publicize over 13 runway shows in the Big Apple.  From PetitePARADE, the first ever Kids Fashion Week in the USA ( , to Style 360 and the Elle magazine show, to Rajvi Mohan, one of the few men’s shows this season.  The New Delhi designer made quite the splash with her new Men’s Spring Summer 2011 collection presented by New Era. As you may have guessed, (and can see in the photos) it was hard to concentrate on the show or clothes, with all of the gorgeous male models on the runway.
