Double-Duty Fashion

Florida fashion has to be cutting-edge and climate-friendly. Fashion-industry hopefuls vying to make their mark here have to pull double duty as well. Diana Kramer ( might be a fashion designer, but for her upcoming show at Gallery 101 (3354 NE 33rd St., Fort Lauderdale), she also has to be an event organizer, publicist, and model wrangler. The show itself is more than a fashion show; it is also the opening event for “Glamour Girls,” the latest collection by local artist Robin White ( — who will herself also be working the runway. Another model, Nicole Esposito, will also be doing makeup. As for the rest of the models, they’re also competitive dancers, students of Diana Kramer, who teaches ballroom dancing in her spare time (whenever that is). The event is from 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday and is free, as is the gallery, which is open from noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. “Glamour Girls” will run through May 21. Visit, or call 954-882-1861.

She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
