The King Of The Pant Is On His Way To Miami

alvin-valley
Fashion has long been infiltrated by architects, notably Martin Margiela, Hussein Chalayan, and Issey Miyake, but, and this is just a guess, Alvin Valley is the only University of Miami educated architect to successfully make the switch from finals to Fashion Week.
Alvin Valley, dubbed the king of the pant by Vogue and Women’s Wear Daily, is coming back to the home of the U for a meet-and-greet and trunk show. Valley’s eponymous label was first launched in Coral Gables, but he relocated to SoHo and made a name for himself with celebs and the fashion set. Alvin sold his label to Moret Group, but has now bought it back and is re-launching it under an innovative direct-to-the-consumer model, meaning shoppers get the goods first. Need an extra credit reason to hit up the trunk show? 10% of the sales benefit Roots of Hope. You taught him well, UM.
When: Saturday, June 23 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Where: Murano at Portofino, 1000 South Pointe Drive, Apartment 2204. RSVP here.
