During this year’s Miami Art Week, Loud Love of Urban Design will host Loud Week 2023, an event that aims to bring attention to and celebrate Black artists, exhibits and art initiatives represented locally and abroad. The event will showcase significant works inspired by Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America and beyond through thought-provoking art activations, industry panels, brunch parties, social networking events, and pop-up shops. The event’s highlight will be a major fashion and art runway show that will take place from Dec. 2 to Dec. 9 in Miami.
Loud Week aims to create an unforgettable atmosphere for Black & Brown creatives during the Art Basel/Miami Art Week by organizing eight curated art and fashion events. This annual celebration of African, Caribbean, and Latin American art and culture is scheduled to run from Dec. 2 to Dec. 9. It will feature an eclectic mix of fashion, art, and cutting-edge activations that are sure to captivate the hearts and minds of art enthusiasts visiting Miami for Art Basel 2023.
The leading fashion and art show will feature four new collections from local fashion brands. These brands include F + F Gains Athleisure, Cool Creative, the House of Postiche, and South Florida Fashion Academy.
“We’re excited to host a variety of events during the Art Basel season and celebrate the creatives of our culture,” Karine Melissa says, Founder and CEO of Love of Urban Design. “Our curated art, fashion and social events will bring together Miami’s top urban creatives and uplift cultural and artistic manifestations of the brown and black communities. LOUD™ is dedicated to hosting and producing events in Miami that enable urban creatives to thrive.”
Over the past decade, an influential Black art, fashion and culturally relevant community with a digital global reach of 2.3 million people has been created by LOUD™. The LOUD™ organization has produced renowned fashion and art events to spotlight and uplift local Black creatives based in South Florida.
The Loud Week event schedule will showcase the works of Black and Afro-Latina creatives from Miami and Atlanta who have made a significant impact as culture leaders and change-makers in Miami and other places. This year is especially noteworthy because LOUD Love of Urban Design® has been recognized as an official ART of Black event by the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau, which aims to amplify and support this year’s range of Black art exhibitions and events.
The event will feature a charity fundraiser for Fashion For Charity, where Loud plans to donate a portion of the proceeds. The donation will help turn fashion into a force for good by supporting programs and resources for local fashion designers and creatives.
