What Made Him Haute: Craig Robins helped to reinvent Miami. From South Beach, Lincoln Road and Española Way to the Design District, Robins breathed new life into all of them. They were ghost towns until he saw their potential and Miami is all the better because of him!

What Makes Him Haute Now: The San Diego Contemporary Art fair will be hosting a one-day conference on Sept. 4, 2010, on cultural growth and innovation. Speaking at the conference are some of the nations most forward-thinking entrepreneurs and community leaders. Miami’s own Craig Robins is among the three speakers selected. He was asked to speak about his passion for art and how it has shaped Miami’s Design District. He will be speaking with Jonathon Seigal and the two will be discussing whether their works could be applied to San Diego. What a great honor for him and Miami to be seen as such an avant-guard city!
