If you’re still picturing Miami style as ’90s South Beach and Versace, get with the times. Amongst the style trendsetters currently making waves in the city’s scene, journalist Danié Gomez-Ortigoza (@journeyofabraid) caught our eye with her self-described “Floridian Frida look.” Not only is her singular colorful style and trademark braid inspired by her Mexican heritage, but it also carries a deeper meaning. She explains, “Every time I braid my hair, as I tie the final knot with the scarf, I think of how I can push forward in some way that day.” Her style speaks to a larger trend that she’s noticed in her fair city. As she describes it, “The growing art scene is having a huge impact on the visual stimulation of the city, and, by default, on fashion.”
