On Saturday March 5th, the beloved Bal Harbour shops will close its doors (for the only time in its history) for the highly anticipated affair. The progressive party will showcase the fashion trends, movies, television and entertainment through the decades: from the 60s to the 2000s. Guests will also witness the 2016 Women of Substance flaunt the newest trends down the runway along with celebrity presenters.
