Despite the recent challenges the fashion industry had faced during the pandemic, Erik Rosete, founder and CEO of Art Hearts Fashion has adapted and prevailed, bringing fashion back to life with his unprecedented fashion films that serve as runway presentations for brands and designers during the pandemic and continues to curate innovative mediums to share his passion for high fashion and art with the world.

Art Hearts Fashion

After his highly successful launch of LA Swim Week from June 11-14,2022, Art Hearts Fashion returns to Miami with its trademark Swim Week event and will also showcase some of the most innovative international artists and NFT art projects from July 14-17, 2022 at the Faena Forum.

This immersive art show, in partnership and curated by Dr. Laura, president of DRL Agency, a Miami-based agency specializing in brand activation and investor relations, features acclaimed contemporary American street artist and muralist Skott Marsi.

Marsi will share a sneak peek of his “Crypto Whales” NFT Community with Edification & Ocean Conservation. The Crypto Whales is a project dedicated to saving the ocean while educating and inspiring future generations through the power of art and is due to launch this summer ahead of Hamptons Tech Week.

Artists Galore

Rising star Colombian artist Juliana Plexxo, known for creating art by the technique of engraving and mixing this centuries-old technique with Augmented Reality technology, is set to paint a mural at the event, a project sponsored by Source Protocol, that will no doubt mesmerize spectators.

Engraving in the workshop where greats such as Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, and Picasso had once occupied, Plexxo is the first Latin artist to exhibit in the museum La Capilla del Hombre in Ecuador.

Blackdove, a pioneer in the digital art market pre-NFT with clients such as Christie’s International Art Auction House, Moelis & Co, and Marriott and the only vertically integrated solution in the market, with more than 200+ digital art installations actively running and 5000+ monthly subscribers, will reveal a first of its kind NFT digital art project, under the direction of Dr. Laura, created by 3D character designer and animator partners featuring Brazil’s number one swimwear brand, Lybethras Swimwear, as well as showcase Andrei Sigarev and Beryl Billici’s 3D artwork on their digital canvases.

Art curator Ken Hendel, owner of Gallery Art, an 8,000 sq ft internationally recognized gallery based in Aventura, FL, will showcase world renowned artists such as Andy Warhol, Banksy, Roy Lichtenstein, Keith Haring, Robert Indiana and introduce his new and innovative NFT platform where art enthusiasts can purchase a fraction of these blue chip art masterpieces.

Gallery Art

Gallery Art, in its 30th year of business, will auction through their NFT platform an original Andy Warhol portrait of Jason Mccoy, one of Andy Warhol’s first art dealers and nephew of well-known abstract expressionist artist Jackson Pollock.

“Dr. Laura and I have collaborated for years through our non-profit work and I am very excited to present this fashion forward immersive art show with her this year,” said Rosete.

Art Hearts Fashion aims to take their events to new heights year after year and will continue to make enormous strides by connecting Art, Fashion, Philanthropy, and Inclusion. Having been named #1 in Forbes for milestones in the fashion industry and supporting Make-A-Wish along with many charity partners (including Aids Healthcare Foundation and Project Cancerland), Art Hearts Fashion is recognized as the largest and longest-running production of both Los Angeles Fashion Week and Miami Swim Week. Through Art Hearts Fashion, Rosete’s shows have been viewed over a billion times on Youtube.
