Miami is a unique place with a lot to offer besides just the beach and a good party. There are so many talented entrepreneurs and people shaking up the fashion and beauty industry.
Since launching in October, Pink Coral Miami has been asked to be a part of multiple local collaborations, so we decided just to do our own! Our first collaboration shoot was a total success, after some scheduling issues, changes in the final theme and a few other first world problems, we were able to get some really amazing local brands on board and we couldn’t be happier with the final product.
FYI: We have attached a short ‘about’ about each brand (and how you can get your hands on some of the amazing products) after the lookbook.
*If you are a small business who would like to be apart of our upcoming collaboration shoots, please send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org**

Hush Hair CO is the hottest breakthrough in the world of hair extensions. Not only have they created a business model created solely with a goal to help women become entrepreneurs, they also support women rights and are part of the fight for equal pay- this company is truly one for powerful women. To quote CEO Tatiana Smith ‘To us, education, empowerment and sharing all go hand in hand and it doesn’t stop with selling hair’.

Nails: Hype Nails
Hype Nails is also making waves in the beauty world. They are a vegan, chemical-free nail polish company that is manufactured in the USA. They have a large selection of colors, a BEAUTIFUL finish, and a huge brush to cover the entire nail in one stroke (hard to find, and kind of a necessity for at home manicures). Even our beauty technician couldn’t stop commenting on how incredible these nail polishes were. They offer 43 different colors, in addition to other beauty products.
Accessories: Bungalow Drift
The beautiful straw purses, blankets, and the decorative tassels were provided all handmade and provided by Bungalow Drift. Bungalow drift is this very cool, very unique handmade home decor. The owner is the sweetest, most beautiful woman and her popup shop was to die for. She combines prints, textures and unconventional designs and shapes inspired by her travels. Her designs are perfect for those struck with wanderlust, looking for unique items for their home or those hippies at heart.
She recently created a wine holder that is beautiful and practical as it hangs from the ceiling and I think it’s going to be my next purchase.

Picnic Food: Aux Vinaigre
Aux Vinaigre is an up and coming eco-consciously that produces classic and chef-inspired non-perishables items locally. It was founded by the cutest married couple and professional chefs, Ben Shrank and Morgan Beene. We only got a taste of some of their products at the shoot but there was literally NOTHING left. You can taste the love and hard work that goes into each product. Their packaging is all eco-friendly, their labels are made from recycled consumer waste and each sale goes towards their nonprofit, Garden for feeding.
