The Miami Design District Hosts Fashion Fights Cancer

| January 9, 2017 | Parties

Cause and Effect
The Miami Design District celebrates Angeles Almuna at the inaugural Fashion Fights Cancer.

Anyone who is familiar with fashionista and photographer Angeles Almuna on social media knows about her ongoing battle with breast cancer, which she has chronicled bravely and extensively on Facebook. The Miami Design District honored her efforts at the inaugural Fashion Fights Cancer, a charitable style celebration dedicated to all those affected with the disease.

More than 200 guests and Almuna fans (of which there are many) turned out to support the newly minted advocate who dazzled the crowd in a pink-and-white dress before taking the stage to deliver an inspiring speech about her experience.

Although the subject matter was serious, the celebration had plenty of light moments. Almuna’s good friend Jhon Jairo Santos spoke to the crowd about his friend’s courage, and Almuna wowed guests when she showed off her moves on the dance floor. ‒Michael Muzquiz
