Social Styles: April Highlights

Who Wore What to Where by Elysze Held



In South Florida, the name Elysze Held is synonymous with style. As founder and president of the Miami fashion/image consulting firm, Style Out of the City, Elysze is the personal stylist to WSVN 7/Deco Drive’s hosts, Lynn Martinez & Louis Aguirre and has dressed CEO's, models, super-models, celebrities, socialites & fashionistas! Elysze frequently commutes to New York, is a field producer for Mercedes Benz New York Fashion week, and styles national advertising campaigns. With her stylist's eye, she lets us know WHO WORE WHAT to WHERE!


Spring has sprung amongst the Miami chic, and SocialMiami’s fashion contributor Elysze Held was on the scene at a broad spectrum of fashionable events - joie de vivre style at the Dior opening at Saks Bal Harbour, western chic at the Arsht Center Gala, while Key Biscayners embraced the colors and textures of the island’s nature at the Key Biscayne Foundation’s Aqua Party, then onto the opening night voguish crowd at The PlayGround Theatre’s A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings.
