CABANA TRADE SHOW 2023

Press Release | Cabana Trade Show 2023

Miami, FL | July 10th, 2023 – Istituto Marangoni Miami is pleased to announce its participation in the 10th edition of the CABANA trade show held at the Miami Convention Center from July 8th -10th. With top brands and retailers within the swimwear, resort wear, accessories, RTW, lingerie, jewelry, activewear, and footwear categories, CABANA bridges brands and retailers through a carefully curated environment. For this 10th edition, the Interior Design students from Istituto Marangoni Miami were invited to present their designs for the general lounge space at CABANA while staying true to the curated environment the trade show is known for. The winner, student Pavitra Thakkar, was selected by Janet Wong, co-founder of CABANA.

Student Pavitra Thakkar, with a background in fashion styling and communication, brings a unique and vibrant perspective to her work. Her designs often incorporate intricate patterns, rich colors, and details inspired by her Indian heritage. She believes in the power of simplicity and aims to create beautiful and functional spaces that reflect her clients’ personalities and needs, a testament to the individual creativity and talent nurtured at Istituto Marangoni Miami.

“Entering a convention center brimming with unique designs and products from multiple brands is always an inspiring experience. For me, Miami’s prominent pink color inspired the creation of this lounge area that promotes interaction and relaxation while providing a vibrant connection with the exhibitions,” stated Pavitra.

Istituto Marangoni Miami’s Dean of Interior Design, Dr. Thelma Lazo Flores, reflects on the CABANA project: “This was not just a design exercise, but an immersive learning experience for our students. They were faced with real-world challenges – a client, a specific space, a purpose, a budget, a timeline. These design parameters pushed their creativity and sensitivity, forcing them to consider how potential users would enjoy their time in the lounge. The outstanding outcome is a testament to our school’s commitment to providing practical and real-world education, empowering our students to confidently deliver their own cohesive spatial syntax.”
