Museum of Fashion

Via The Miami Foundation

Goal

To celebrate the art of fashion through exhibitions that highlight South Florida's diversity and famous designers with local ties.

To celebrate the art of fashion, curator Keni Valenti will strengthen a new museum collection that highlights vintage couture. Over the years, Valenti has amassed a collection of 15,000 articles of clothing, accessories, jewelry and more, from the 1920s to the present. With Knight Foundation funding, he will continue to preserve, collect, study and present these pieces at the Museum of Fashion in Wynwood, and partner with other institutions like HistoryMiami on exhibitions.
