WMODA collections are amazing, nothing you will see anywhere else in Florida and might I dare to say even throughout the United States. The museum houses a unique collection of 19th & 20th century porcelain and British ceramics, 20th & 21st century works from the studio glass movement, and a collection of contemporary paintings, sculptures, and furniture.
However, this Dania Beach museum doesn’t just display amazing artwork, the industrial-chic gallery also lends its space for events. I had the chance to visit the museum and see their magnificent artwork during their Flair of Fashion event. “A Flair for Fashion” incorporated their porcelain pieces and couture garments with a retrospective runway show of fashion from the 1800’s to current day attire. 200 centuries worth of decades were represented by an individual interpretation of a student designer from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale.
The event drew in an impressive crowd all in the name of charity in which every cent of the proceeds went to benefit the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale Educational Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides educational scholarships. The whole night was a spectacular affair and to top it off there was a special runway fashion judge in the house, Mitchell Perry from Project Runway Season 13. Mr. Alfredo Barrios, WMODA event coordinator, did an impeccable job of creating a seamless combination of art and fashion.
