expressing self-identity and of
signaling to one another.

About the Designer

Fashion Design, Art Direction, Publishing, Photography,
Dance, Visual Arts and a passion for music. After years
working in Fashion, Khasamarina realized that the cycle
of the industry is very limiting and in order to stay truth to
his designs he should embark on a new fashion adventure
without rules, where pieces are only created by hand,
without the use of machines, measurements, threads or
needles, but Khasamarina’s own signature knots, fringes
Under the mentorship of Alessandra Gold, and under the
umbrella of GSA House, Khasamarina has creatively
helped developed projects for Global brands such as

About the Collection
KHASAMARINA "KHASAMARTINI KHASAMAPRIDE" Collection
The collection highlights the need for greater representation for the transgender community in art, fashion, and
entertainment, While celebrating the beauty and strength within the wide spectrum of the LGBTQ + community
Transgender Activist, Artist and Model Chloe Martini was chosen by the Designer to incorporate her intimate
artistic paintings directly onto some of the statement pieces.
Juntos y bajo la dirección de la Diseñadora Internacional Alessandra Gold, La marca de ropa Khasamarina
reivindicó "la inclusión" en las pasarelas de moda con un desfile que contó con una decena de modelos
transexuales durante la Miami Swim Week.
"La comunidad transgénero es una de las más olvidadas, especialmente las mujeres latinas y negras, como
que están muy poco representadas en las artes, por eso quisimos hacer esto", declaró a Efe Bo
Khasamarina, el diseñador de la colección.
El joven, de 35 años y residente en el sur de la Florida, presentó su nueva colección en la Miami Swim Week,
una de las citas más importantes del calendario de la moda en Estados Unidos.
A él no le importó que su nueva colección pasara a un segundo plano y que las modelos acapararan la atención
Khasamarina espera que en el futuro este tipo de desfiles inclusivos no sorprendan en la industria y que se
valore "el trabajo por el talento" y no por la identidad sexual.
"Definitivamente está cambiando, pero no sé si se está haciendo a la velocidad necesaria", afirmaba mientras
ultimaba los detalles en una de las salas del emblemático hotel Surfcomber de Miami Beach.
Su colección, que lleva el mismo nombre de su marca, consta de prendas "sin género", pensadas para que
"cualquier persona de cualquier condición" las pueda lucir.

Artist MIGUEL RODEZ
Miguel Rodez was born at Havana Cuba, but emigrated to
the US when he was an adolescent. He studied History,
Philosophy and English at the University of Miami and Law
at Indiana University. This eventually led to a long career in a
quasi-judicial post as a civil servant in the field of human
rights. Nevertheless, he managed to carve out a parallel
career as a professional artist.
Now, he devotes himself exclusively to Art. Like most artists,
his interest in art began in his childhood. Despite a brief
educational stint at the High school of Art and Design in New
York City and one course in figure drawing at the University
of Miami, he is essentially an autodidactic contemporary
Rodez’s body of work includes traditional portraits and
abstracts. His artwork has been shown extensively,
including at the Coral Gables Museum; St. Thomas
University; Florida International University’s Green Library;
Albizu University; Bacardi Headquarters; Bayfront Park;
Miami Beach Botanical Gardens; Dominican Republic’s

"When I arrived in the United States as a teenager in 1969, a cultural revolution was taking place in the country. While young men
burned their military draft cards to protest the war in Vietnam, women burned their bras to protest against gender-based
discrimination. Youths my age chose idols to look up to. Practically all of them chose famous musicians, sports figures, or
controversial politicos. However, my interests lay the visual arts. Therefore, I idolized 20th Century artists. I owe my knowledge of
painting to my visual analysis of their work. Therefore, when deciding on painting subject matter for my portrait series, I felt
compelled to pay tribute to those whose legacy taught and inspired me. This indebtedness to their legacy is what motivates my
current series of 20th Century masters, often blending certain aspects of their work with my own style. (I willing to paint portraits of
other people on commission, but influential 20th Century artists is the key to my artist portrait series). For example, in my portrait
of Salvador Dali, I chose to allude to hiss persistent preoccupation with his own mortality by creating an idealized paradise that he
would find appealing, as it is drawn from themes Dali utilized in some of his most famous paintings."
“There is really nothing more fabulous than the Art of Gay Fashion, and the design/clothing industry
would be literally nothing without the involvement of the LGBT community. From Alexander McQueen
to Alexander Wang, and Karl Lagerfeld to Gianni Versace… The underground Houses from the 80’s,
Drag Culture, Club Kids, Boy George & RuPaul. Marlene Dietrich, Janelle Monae & Ellen DeGeneres.
Today, Hollywood California to Hollywood Florida, fashion continues to rule the runways, clubs and
streets – and our community is always, Purse First.”
