Julian Chang

Posted: Updated:

It's the super bowl of fashion. Miami Fashion Week gives fashion addicts a look at the trends for summer, and a peek at winter. Opening this year, local designer Julian Chang, who puts lace, shoulders and sexy mama-ness in everything.

Designer Julian Chang is on deadline.

Julian Chang: "This is wear the magic happens."

Just Days From Fashion Week, the Miami designer, known for his sexy pieces, is opening for the show this year and it's a big deal.

Julian Chang: "It is a big deal because it kinda sets the tone for the whole week, so we work really hard for that 10 minute to be amazing."

The theme for the whole week resort wear.

Julian Chang: "But you don't have to be going on a cruise to wear resort wear. You could wear it to Key West or Publix when it's 90 degrees out, right?"

Julian Chang: "It's about an attitude, a lounging attitude, it's a lifestyle attitude."

Some of the attitude pieces you'll see in Julian's show include this suit made from Chantille lace. Feminine and edgy see thru yet not.

Julian Chang: "And of course coral, the color of the season."

This dress is actually a long top with a little surprise underneath the lace shorts.

Julian Chang: "One side is completely open on the other side closed."

Each side is different on this metallic wrap dress, which, is actually two dresses. Pull the string, and you're off to go dancing.

Julian Chang: "People in Miami are used to dressing different from other parts of the country, reflecting that into our collection is wonderful."

Signature Julian Chang is exposed shoulders and back. This colbolt blue silk dress is sexy and forgiving.

For those of us who hate ironing, the asymmetrical jersey dress doesn't wrinkle and is flattering on everyone.

Want something shorter? This cocktail dress is a mix of taffeta on the bottom, and jersey on top, for a perfect fit.

And what do you think about his jumpsuit? Julian created it so the torso and leg are elongated.

Julian Chang: "Everything I design there's a reason for it, a mood or a feeling I'm trying to express."

So clearly the mood for Fashion Week will be sexy, baby.

    I'll never forget the endless summers I spent on the coast of North Carolina. My shoulders were always kissed by the sun, my hair was continually salty from the ocean and my one-piece, bright blue bathing suit was my constant companion.

    The last time I had on a pair of overalls, I was miles from civilization with a whip in my hand, an hysterical co-worker by my side and five angry cowboys staring me down.

    I don't remember dying, but I did. Twice. It was a chilly Fall morning in October at a dentist's office in Santa Fe. My mom had escorted me to what was supposed to be a regular wisdom teeth extraction appointment.

    Sometimes, love can be hard to find in South Florida. The same can't be said for burgers, though. Tasty patties are everywhere. A new joint is offering up a unique take on this favorite comfort food. It's fresh, healthy and tastes like nothing you've tried before. Welcome to Burger Love.
