This year's Miami Art Week was more packed than ever with high-end fashion activations. Luxury brands staged events all over the city, from the Design District to Miami Beach, in an effort to court wealthy art patrons.

Design Miami was a particularly big player this year. The fair featured a number of fashion-focused installations, including a collaboration between Louis Vuitton and artist Olafur Eliasson. The two brands created "The Eye of the Collector," an immersive installation that recreated the inside of a Louis Vuitton trunk.

Elsewhere at Design Miami, Balenciaga set up a pop-up shop in collaboration with artist Daniel Arsham. The Parisian fashion label created a miniature Tower of Babel inside the booth, complete with sumptuous displays of Balenciaga's Fall/Winter 2018 collection. A model wearing nearly $2,000 worth of items was even suspended from the ceiling on opening night.

Two other large installations at Design Miami were Jean Prouvé and Margiela. Prouvé, a French architect and designer, was the subject of a solo exhibition at the fair. The show featured furniture, sketches, and models from the early part of his career, when he worked with metal. Meanwhile, Margiela presented "The Art of Denim," an exhibit that explored the history of denim as a textile and the development of the brand's signature jean.

The Wynwood Arts District, home to an emerging gallery scene that houses many non-commercial art organizations, also hosted a number of fashion events this year. Louis Vuitton created "Horizon," an installation comprising eight portraits of people wearing shades of blue next to murals by Jamie Martinez, a local artist.

Armani Exchange teamed up with the Arsham/Bieber Studio to present an art installation that was displayed in their store windows on Lincoln Road. Featured were drawings by Arsham that evoked Miami's tropical landscape and included several references to the ocean. In addition, Armani Exchange commissioned acclaimed photographer Lillian Bassman to take new photographs for their holiday campaign.On Miami Beach, the Scope Art Fair attracted a number of fashion brands this year. The most notable activation was produced by Opening Ceremony and VFiles, who partnered together for "X: The Gary Kordan Project," a collaboration with transformative artist and designer Gary Kordan and performance artist Nick Knight. The installation took over an entire floor of the fair and featured Knight's latest work, which reimagines the fashion show as a theatrical experience.
