Sophia Naz Shah
Designer Sophia Naz Shah will debut her collection for the very first time on the FDE runway. Here's how she describes her brand. " My own brand, Sophia Naz, is a way for me to continue to grow as a designer and express my own ideas. I love to research and find out what the needs are in the market around me, thus Sophia Naz will be a living and breathing brand that I hope will reach the strong and feminine working women of Miami. The collection I would like to present will be Fall/Winter inspired by ancient Greek architecture and art, with an elegant and wearable feel. The colors will be rich, giving the classical era twist of darkness and mystery." http://www.sophianaz.com

Let the Runway Meet the Cause Sponsor
Maria Aponte' created "Painted Swagg" to show everyone around the world that it's OKAY to be themselves, despite how the public eye views them. Regardless of the circumstances, never hide who you really are. Who you are only makes you greater in the end, so embrace it. In a society where you can be whatever you want to be, why not be yourself? So in the words of Maria, "in a world where you can be her canvas, allow her to Paint you with Swagg." http://www.paintedswagg.com
