Fort Lauderdale is an exhilarating cultural hub, with arts, music, international cuisine, and exciting events, from the International Boat Show to the biggest local fashion event of the year, FLL Fashion Week (#FLLFW). FLL Fashion Week hits the catwalk on April 2nd 2023, with its 9th annual fashion showcase, presented by FLLFW Magazine. Local and international designers, celebrities, fashion bloggers, influencers and fashionistas will flock to Fort Lauderdale for fashion shows, parties, and pop-ups – on yachts, on land, and on the beach. The week is packed with fun events, important discussions, and blistering new looks.
While the Pier Sixty-Six resort is currently being magnificently reimagined (with spectacular pool experiences, new restaurants and poolside lounges), the Pier Sixty-Six Marina is an ideal setting for Fashion Week parties and celebrations on your own vessel – just as it’s hosting superyacht extravaganza events during the Miami Grand Prix / F1 weekend in May.
The events of FLL Fashion Week showcase Florida fashion and celebrate local designers, helping to establish Fort Lauderdale as a global style presence. FLL Fashion Week is also a showcase for international design, with couture designers presenting their latest collections at the finale event, just as in Paris Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week, London Fashion Week, and Milan Fashion Week, as well as Miami Fashion Week in June.
The exciting fashion shows, performances, and parties of FLL Fashion Week take place at various venues throughout the city. In the future, the glamorous new Pier Sixty-Six event spaces, pool terraces, and the reinvented Pier Top lounge would make an impressive setting for fashion shows, pop-ups, and brand experiences.
FLL Fashion Week is an annual event that draws visitors from across the globe to Fort Lauderdale. Designers, press, influencers, and models revel in the creative energy – and the sunny climate. This type of event is part of the spectrum of reasons why people love Fort Lauderdale, for sunny vacations, for work, and for extended stays in the glamorous yachting capital of the world.

2023 Trends: Sheer Genius
Fashion trends for the Spring/Summer 2023 season include body-hugging silhouettes with a romantic approach to corsetry, and a continuing trend of sheer fabrics for day and evening wear. Translucent fabrics add a touch of drama, as a dress overlay atop a simple evening slip, or a more risqué approach with lingerie-baring looks. This layering works well in the Fort Lauderdale climate, and adds a sexy frisson and intrigue to your day or evening look.
Color trends for Spring/Summer 2023 will also be revealed at FLL Fashion Week. There’s talk of soft shell pinks and bold cobalt – a color that’s always in style in Fort Lauderdale, where life revolves around boating, beaches, and the gorgeous waterways.
FLL Fashion Week hosts important fashion influencer events, with prominent figures such as Talita Santos. The Graduation Fashion Show of The Fashion Institute of Florida on Friday April 7th is a prime talent-spotting event, showcasing emerging talent.
Of course, beach-to-bar attire is on show, as Fort Lauderdale is a haven of beachy sophistication, poolside glamour, and scintillating nightlife. Visitors are also anticipating the latest styles designed to look cool, calm, and contemporary on the deck of a sleek yacht or superyacht. FLL Fashion Week keeps a focus on body positivity and inclusivity, a reflection of this city’s warm and welcoming atmosphere and free-thinking approach to life.
Dina Hannanova’s Collection is live @FLLFashionWeek on April 7th, shining a light on emotional honesty and distinct individuality, with fabrics from denim to organza.
