4) Ramona Larue by Arianne

These highly original separates and dresses are a fashionable tribute to designer Arianne Brown’s mother, Mona, who taught the Coconut Grove native how to hand-paint silk. Every item begins life as actual art. Then the designs are transferred to flowing clothing, all manufactured in Miami, that sway to the tune of the body.
