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 consulting firm, Style Out of the City, Elysze is the personal stylist to Deco Drive’s hosts, Lynn Martinez and Louis Aguirre, on WSVN7 and has dressed models, super-models, celebrities, and fashionistas!

Elysze entered the South Florida fashion scene from San Francisco, as fashion director for Lillie Rubin (84 stores), then onto fashion styling and directing at Burdines, Florida. Elysze frequently commutes to New York, and is a field producer for Mercedes Benz New York Fashion week, and styles national advertising campaigns. She loves Miami style most of all, and is excited to contribute monthly to SocialMiami.com, and let us know WHO is WEARING WHAT to WHERE!


Art Basel Week in Miami was a mix of Art and Fashion - and everyone “brought it out for Basel!” SocialMiami contributor, stylist Elysze Held, reveals her next pick for the 2011 ART BASEL STYLE STARS.

“What's extraordinary is the way everything modern fits in with everything old. It's all a matter of combining. There's no beginning or end there
- only timelessness”.
-Diana Vreeland
