Art Basel Miami seems to become more and more of a fashion hot spot each year: we’ve noticed an increasing buzz about it in social media, celebrity and VIP party lists, fashion labels blogging and tweeting their presence and happenings etc… Fashion blog fashionista.com confirms our view, and elaborates more on this shift toward fashion here in this post. We love the connection of fashion and art, so we’re excited to see how Art Basel will evolve in the future! A few glimpses from last weekend’s Art Basel Miami 2013:

For all you who also love artful photography, fashion, and design, we have a neat eye candy treat you today: a peek into an agency model show package which we found especially beautifully presented. The model agency WOMEN MANAGEMENT PARIS chose a Art Nouveau postcard inspired design for this model portfolio:
Agency: WOMEN MANAGEMENT PARIS. See full show package here on models.com.
We love how this portfolio presentation is unique yet subtle, while keeping the focus on the models. And of course we’re smitten because, as you know, we have a weakness for Art Nouveau inspired design!
How about you?
