TDRMiami Presents Karelle Levy of KRELwear at Freehand Miami

TDRMiami Presents Karelle Levy of KRELwear at Freehand MiamiFriday, November 8, 8pm – Freehand Miami, 2727 Indian Creek Drive, Miami Beach

The Broken Shaker and Freehand Miami present the fourth edition of The Drawing Room, a monthly event series that pairs the best of Miami’s local art scene with some of the area’s leading names in cocktails. The Drawing Room brings together two of Miami’s largest cultural platforms, reinforcing the connection that Freehand and Broken Shaker have with the community. Each month, a Miami-based artist is invited to showcase their work at Freehand Miami. Inspired by the artist’s work, the team at The Broken Shaker creates a custom cocktail as a featured special.

This installment of The Drawing Room will feature Miami-based artist Karelle Levy of KRELwear, who will present a selection of her work. Born and raised in Miami, Levy has dedicated her career to exploring the endless possibilities of knitwear. Selecting the threads carefully, she engineers each piece of fabric individually, creating elaborate, light-sensitive fabrics that are then used to make form-fitting dresses, furniture decorations, wall art, and elaborate installations.

For this edition of The Drawing Room, Levy will incorporate her fabrics into the lush gardens of the Broken Shaker, creating an environment full of texture, color, lights and shadows. In addition to this site-specific installation, there will be a fashion show featuring one-of-a-kind hand-knit couture pieces inspired by life in Miami.

This month’s cocktail was created by Broken Shaker’s Cricket Nelson, in collaboration with Karelle Levy. Aptly named Indian Jungle, the cocktail will include bourbon, Indian spice, lemon, ginger, Perrier® Sparkling Natural Mineral Water, topped with star anise and tarragon.
