Great art begins with great architecture and Miami Beach was losing iconic examples by the year. The Miami Design Preservation League’s activities include the Neo Classical and Mid modern as well as the ArtDeco that Miami Beach is again more famous for.

Art Deco Fashion Show, Bettie Page Clothing and Traci Lynn Jewelry Iris Chase, resident artist hosting the walkway. The models walked out from the Welcome Center out onto a raised walkway extending over the Center’s steps onto the side walk and crowds between the arts and crafts stalls gathered to watch young ladies twirl in the dresses their mothers and grandmothers wore, some dresses were so stylish they immediately started conversations of favorite films and actresses in the crowd. The models went through three changes, giving opportunity to see again each period hairstyle Iris and her team had obviously enjoyed creating, they completed the dress designs perfectly.
