Miami Design District is proud to host the Sixth Annual Fashion Strikes Cancer, founded by Angeles Almuna, fashion visionary, stylist, breast cancer survivor. The series of events will be held throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month to raise critical funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. From wellness, open-air concert, shop & sips, these soirées are not to be missed.
This year’s ticketed events honor Executive Leadership Life Coach and cancer survivor, Gisela Lowenstein who lost both her parents to battles of cancer and became a survivor of cancer herself. Through all of this, she gained perspective and filled her life with positivity, empowerment, and selflessness.
The events commenced with the Palm Court Dome Lighting and Dance Ceremony. Guests dressed in their pink best as Mia Market served up the Pink by Design cocktail and live music played in the background. After a heartfelt speech commemorating those who are suffering, suffered, or lost a loved one to cancer, the countdown began and the Dome lit Palm Court in hues of pink. The evening ended with a live dance performance.
