On Wednesday, March 30, MIYO Home hosted a special event at their Midtown Miami showroom to celebrate the launching of the new MIYO Home Virtual Boutique. The event brought together some of the more exclusive artists, designers and celebrities to support the launch in addition to raising awareness and funds for the Juvenile Bipolar Research Foundation.
MIYO Home commissioned eight artists to translate their visions into chair designs, using the Juvenile Bipolar Research Foundation as their inspiration. The beautiful outdoor Zen rock garden posed a serious threat to some very expensive socialite heals, but the curiosity got the best of the guests as everyone admired the different pieces and placed bids on the chairs.
Guests of the event included the who’s who of the Miami art and design elite. By far some of the most noticeable guests were Adriana De Moura, Lea Black, Alexia Echevarria and Marysol Patton of the “Real Housewives Of Miami” and their chair that received some of the highest bids of the evening. I was pleased to see so many well known and accomplished people donate their time and artistic abilities to such a great cause, such as Iran Issa Kahn, Robert Zemnickis, Thom Filicia, Seth Barowarnick, Mario Egoozi, Hillary Scrutis, Briggs Solomon and Fernando Wong. We also caught glimpses of supporters like Jeffrey Donovan from “Burn Notice” and Marcello Boss of Colombostile.
As we toured inside the MIYO Home showroom Co-owner Fati Rosenberg said, “It’s the first charitable organization fully committed to the support of research for the study of early-onset bipolar disorderl; my ultimate goal is to draw awareness to the foundation and further aid the study and treatment of this debilitating condition.”

I believe this evening of high heels, high design and high expectations made it a Haute event people will talk about for days to come.
