Miami, December 5, 2012: Del Toro is pleased to announce the grand opening of their first official Del Toro boutique, located in The Wynwood Building. The celebration took place in conjunction with their 2nd annual Art Basel Event, which showcased an exclusive installation. Del Toro again commissioned over thirty local and international artists, including Curtis Kulig, Hoxxoh, En Masse, and Alec Monopoly, to express their aesthetic on signature Del Toro silhouettes. Each shoe was displayed as an installation during the grand opening event for guests to admire as they shopped the latest styles from Del Toro. Vodka + Perrierยฎ Sparkling Natural Mineral Water cocktails were sipped as guests enjoyed hors dโ€™oeuvres from Eating House and sounds by DJ Brett Beats. During the event guests toasted to Del Toro with Perrier Jouรซt Champagne provided by Southern Wine and Spirits of South Florida. Among those in attendance were: Justin Doss, Ronnie Fieg, William Yan, Chiun Kai Shih, Alec Monopoly, Callyann Barnett, Rachel Johnson, Jace Lipstein, and Hacula.

Creative Director of Del Toro, Matthew Chevallard, is an avid art enthusiast and enjoys fusing art with fashion. โ€œI am excited for our second annual Art Basel event as we celebrate the launch of our boutique in The Wynwood Building. I always appreciate the various aesthetics each artist brings to our classic silhouettes and I am thrilled to showcase this installation at our new location. Wynwood is filled by amazing art from talented local artists and I am happy to be a part of the Wynwood community.โ€
