Megan Kowalchuk
My name is Megan Kowalchuk. I was born in Parkslope, Brooklyn; and spent my life living between South Florida and New York. Currently residing in South Florida it provides me with a truly unique sense of life. Fashion and beauty are my first love, especially experimenting with different styles and products. Celebrity style, head- turning fashion trends and standout beauty products are my passion. I’ve attended various runway shows at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week and Miami Swim Week and have tested hundreds of beauty products on the market to find the best. My previous experience includes working as a Corporate Sales Representative for a Fashion Company in New York City called ByDesign. ByDesign specialized in the product development and sales for junior sweaters and knits. Some of the accounts we worked with include Macy's, Pacsun, Target, Lord & Taylor, etc. Market research was always one of my favorite task on the job, I was responsible for spending countless hours hunting for new styles and everything fashion related. This included exploring top department stores to see the latest products on the floor and analyzing the looks on the street to help predict the future trends that would evolve. G9C fashion was another company I worked with, it was a local startup company that manufactured clothes in Brooklyn and Peru. While there I worked alongside with the owner and designer to help create look-book styles and merchandise the products. I’ve also interned with the luxury brand Belstaff, I coordinated samples to send for different magazines including Vogue, Interview and New York Times, while helping PR with celebrity gifting orders for celebrities like David Beckham and Adam Levine. A lover of travel and different cultures, I first earned a Bachelors degree in Business from Florida Atlantic University and then went on to study abroad in cities such as Paris, France and Barcelona, Spain. My formal education and personal experiences have shaped me into the writer I am today.

A new wave of fashion is hitting South Florida. iii Points is a Music, Art & Technology festival that took over Miami’s art district during the past weekend. It’s three intense days of concerts, DJs, installations, beauty makeovers, and of course the ever so frequent break to chill out and people watch.

The festival definitely had an identity of it’s own when it came to fashion. The color of the weekend was primarily black, with some offset scatters of whites and holograms. Many of the attendees treated the event as a fashion week and were dressed to the nines.

Chunky shoes and skintight clothes were on the memo and we can’t forget about the collar necklaces. Designer meets thrift store was the style of the evening. You could tell that each festivalgoer consciously put together their outfit and it was uniquely expressed and clearly represented. Some of the accessories included quirky shades, press on glitter tattoos, jewels & knee-high socks.

But those that didn’t come dressed for the occasion didn’t fret. Aileen Quintana (a Miami based make-up artist) was ready with her glam squad to transform anybody’s look within ten minutes. Amazing! You could walk in and out of the installation as a new person.

Some of the various services included braids, color extensions, or some whimsical makeup designs. Quintana has been a part of iii points since it originally opened three years ago, and her instillations continue to grow with the rest of the festival! Let’s see what’s in store for next year, fashionistas!
