TRains Sketch for MAW Fashion ShowDesigner Rains, of Heatherette fame returns as featured designer for the second year, describes his “La Nuit Magique” concept as “a 1930s burlesque meets a modern-day Cirque du Freak.”

With a celebrity following that includes Adam Lambert, Perez Hilton and Taryn Manning, Rains is known for avant-garde custom couture that is right at home on the red carpet.

“This year, guests can expect lots of skin, with a tiny hint of bondage during the fashion show,” said Rains. “And, of course, there will be many fashion moments on the runway that will make guests gasp and smile.”

The elaborate décor for the event is being created by DECO Productions. Guests will enter InterContinental Miami’s Biscayne Ballroom, leading directly into the fashion show. DJ Sandman will be awaiting them, spinning his intoxicating groove.

After Rains presents his collection, guests will be invited to step into character and dance on the catwalk or, for those less exhibitionistic, take-in the live burlesque shows enacted by risqué dancers, as well as other outrageous surprises as the night continues.

Tickets for the InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Nightclub are $100, (for those already attending the Ball prior, there is no charge) and can be purchased at

There will be a complimentary open bar and suitable evening attire is required.
