Journey back with us to 2012 when Bal Harbour Shops closed its doors to host Destination Fashion 2012. GRAMMY award winner Enrique Iglesias entertained thousands in the transformed parking lot of Bal Harbour Shops after a stunning Emilio Pucci’s Spring 2013 Fashion Show presented by Saks Fifth Avenue, dazzled all. NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw hosted the evening, which was chaired by Academy Award winner Tommy Lee Jones and International Polo Sensation Ignacio “Nacho” Figueras and raised $31 million for The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis.
In addition to the Emilio Pucci Fashion show, the Enrique Iglesias private performance in between the palm trees and a seated dinner, the event paid tribute to the notable 2012 Women of Substance and Style honorees, who walked down the runway accompanied by Celebrity Presenters. The Celebrity Presenters were icons from the world of sports, film, entertainment and music including Miguel Cabrera, Tico Torres, Alonzo Mourning, Emilio Estefan, Mike Piazza, Joe Manganiello, Chris Cuomo, Helio Castronoves, Gil De Ferran, Colin Egglesfield, Wayne Newton and more. The evening culminated with guests dancing to the musical stylings of DJ Irie and traveling their way through the shops, which were transformed into “The Destinations” of locations from around the world such as Asia, Africa and the Americas. Bal Harbour Shops donated one-of-a-kind silent auction items too.
