When IMG pulled out of Miami Swim Week in 2015 after a 10-year run, it sent brands and buyers into a tailspin. Without a central location and schedule, attendees wore themselves out scrambling from makeshift venue to makeshift venue or threw their hands up in frustration and skipped fashion shows altogether.
After hearing enough complaints, Sam Ben-Avraham, founder of Cabana trade show and Liberty Fairs elsewhere, and Aleksandar Salé Stojanovic, founder of Funkshion, a fashion and event production company in Miami, hope to fill the hole with Magic City. Their five-day, multi-platform fashion and lifestyle fair centers on Cabana’s and Funkshion’s respective locales across Collins Avenue from each other between 21st and 22nd Streets in Miami Beach.
