When it comes to fashion, craftsmanship is an art that needs to be honored. We all have our favorite designers and go-to looks, but do you know the skills it takes to bring them to fruition?

At Bal Harbour Shops’ Bespoke Bal Harbour, you’ll have the opportunity to discover the stories behind the styles. From October 21st through the 24th, the immersive event showcases tailors, engravers and other talents in the bespoke luxury world.

ACCESS it all first!

The launch of Bespoke Bal Harbour on Thursday, October 21st will be an extraordinary celebration, ACCESS: UNLOCK LUXURY. All three Levels of Bal Harbour Shops will be activated for current and future ACCESS Members, complete with Member rewards, interactive entertainment, gifting and surprises. Plus, many of your favorite brands will have special in-store offers available exclusively for ACCESS members.

Have it Your Way with Stella McCartney, Buccellati, Etro & More

The range of activations and events is endless, so we recommend studying up ahead of time! Perhaps you’ll want to start at Stella McCartney, where you’ll be treated to a complimentary manicure featuring nail art inspired by her latest collection with your purchase. You can also create a custom piece of Buccellati jewelry with Lucrezia Buccellati herself while sipping Franciacorta, get complimentary monogramming at Tod’s with the purchase of qualifying leather goods and at Etro, artist Logan Real will be hand-painting designs for a dedicated selection of accessories.

And that’s not nearly all. At Dolce & Gabbana, an artisan will hand paint a design of your choice on sneakers or handbags, and at Neiman Marcus, fashion illustrator Gissi Jimenez will sketch and personalize your purchases with her colorful and witty art and at Wolford, you can personalize your purchase with a Swarovski crystal embellishment.

Brioni’s made-to-measure services will also be available to its discerning customers, and for ACCESS members, a Brioni pocket square will be gifted with each Bespoke order.

For the Discerning Kiddo

Little ones aren’t left out of the fun, either. Fiber artist and designer Karelle Levy of KRELwear is collaborating with Couture Kids with her unique Quickie Couture project. Kids and adults will pick out their favorite fabrics which will then be created into a garment of your choosing. On-site, she will drape and pin the fabric on you and your little ones to make the perfect fit. At Monnalisa, kids can paint their own t-shirts with iconic patterns such as flowers, hearts and bows, and on Saturday, October 22nd, artist Octavia Yearwood will create bespoke t-shirts aimed to empower these budding young artists. Looking for a sweet treat? ACCESS members may want to head to Bianco Gelato for a complimentary popsicle with your purchase of any gelato scoop.

Additional performances will be presented by local artists and musicians during the four-day event throughout the Shops. Click here for the complete Bespoke Bal Harbour program.
