In fact, top retailers across the globe have taken notice of this trend as well, pouring into the city in droves and providing an ever-expanding selection for residents and visitors. The opportunities for a world-class shopping experience are endless and right around the corner.

All along Collins Avenue, where the Z Ocean Hotel is located, you can find a vast array of world-famous retailers, including Armani Exchange, Bebe, Barney’s Outlet Store, and Urban Outfitters, to name just a few.

Lincoln Road, located just two blocks away from our hotel, has recently seen the opening of several major brands, including John Varvatos, Zara, LUSH, Abdias, an expanded GAP building, and more. Some of the new arrivals, such as Ladurée and Sabon, are the first to open in South Florida.

Located just a short drive north is the luxurious Bal Harbour Shops, which ranks among the world’s highest-grossing mall. The 450,000-square foot Mecca of luxury retail is slated to add an addition 350,000 square feet of space, which will not include more luxury outlets, but an upscale movie theater, plaza, and green spaces.

West of Bal Harbour is Aventura, which hosts the nation’s third-largest mall by revenue, Aventura Mall. At 2.7 million square feet, it is by far the largest mall in Florida, offering over 300 establishments to choose from.

Miami Fashion Week Approaches — Stay in Our Centrally-Located Luxury Hotel on Ocean Drive

As Miami Fashion Week approaches, an influx of fashion enthusiasts and professionals has started arriving for the prestigious show that will be taking place on May 15th through the 18th. Miami’s fashion and art scene has been steadily growing in the vibrant city and is now a major cultural hub from where major designers launch their lines. Set amidst this world-famous tropical paradise, it is no wonder why thousands of attendees from around the world make their appearance.

Dating back to 1998, Miami Beach International Fashion Week is the longest-running fashion week in Miami, and it also bills itself as the largest in the world to focus on Caribbean and Latin American designers. This year, guests can expect a one-of-a-kind designers line-up. As the event rebrands and transforms for its 16th year, showcasing resort wear and pre-spring collections for the first time, internationally recognized Spanish designers such as Custo Barcelona, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada and Andres Sarda will lead the interactive shows with their European take on luxury cruise and resort fashion.

Also in the catwalk, Malaparmi and Stella Jean, as well as Yamamay for Miss Universe Collection, alongside the Eastern Air Lines flight attendant runway show.

“We are extremely proud of the unique mix of designers who will present at the biggest resort-wear only fashion event,” said Beth Sobol, President of Miami Fashion Week.” With these runway shows and amazing line-up of designers, Miami Fashion Week promises to be the best and most coveted fashion week of the year.”
