Hot Couture: Florida Jews on the Fashion Scene

Next date: Oct 19, 2017 - click here for time schedule - English

Floridian Jews have been involved in all aspects of the fashion industry, designing, manufacturing, dressing and influencing the local and international scene in all types of clothing from beachwear to ball gowns.

From the now- 96 year-old designer Sylvia Whyte, whose children's clothing brought the likes of Debbie Reynolds, Frank Sinatra and Zsa Zsa Gabor flocking to her Miami Beach store in the 1950s, to an 11 year-old entrepreneur now embarking on her first clothing line incorporating her grandfather's artwork into her designs, Floridian Jews have created a large footprint on this industry.

With iconic brands like Perry Ellis and Chico's; climate-influenced guayaberas, golf shirts and Florida furriers; funky wearable art and bikinis and belts made out of local snakeskins, this exhibit will surprise and inspire you.

Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU Irene Williams: Queen of Lincoln Road

Next date: Oct 19, 2017 - click here for time schedule - English

Miami Beach has always been home to many colorful people. One of them was Irene Williams. Every workday for more than 40 years, Irene dressed in one of her vibrant fashions from a collection of more than 100 handmade hats and outfits, walked to her small office on Lincoln Road. One morning in 1995, Irene was spotted by Eric Smith, a New York City designer, entrepreneur, and founder of E.G. Smith Socks.

A friendship ensued and over the next decade, Eric documented on film Irene's outsider couture, and the heartfelt affection they shared and produced an award winning documentary titled Irene Williams Queen of Lincoln Road. When Irene died in 2004, she left her colorful collection of hats, photos and letters to Smith which are included in the exhibit. In addition to the Irene Williams Collection, the exhibition will include hats and photos on loan from Isabel Bernfeld Anderson and George Neary. The exhibit is sponsored by Robert Arthur Segall Family Foundation, Isabel Bernfeld Anderson, Merle & Danny Weiss, and Pauline Winick.
