Andy Sweet's Miami Beach: The Esteban Cortazar Collection

Esteban was born in Bogota, Colombia in 1984, and grew up in Miami Beach, FL. A child prodigy, who was sketching and designing clothes as a teenager, he was the youngest designer to show at New York Fashion Week.

After moving to Paris to head up the creative team at House of Ungaro, he has lived there ever since. After presenting many successful shows, and dressing some of the most famous women in the world (Beyoncé, Cate Blanchett), he walked away from the fashion shows and started doing his own thing independent of that world. He has designed for Net-a-Porter, and recently collaborated with the Spanish fashion retailer Desigual on a summer collection inspired by Miami Beach. He incorporated the photos of Miami Beach c. 1978 by Andy Sweet, as well as his father’s art (Valentino Cortazar) into the designs.

Esteban agreed to curate a collection of Andy Sweet photos, we wanted to tap into connection to, and memories of, Miami Beach (he lived above the News Cafe). This is the debut of these images from Andy's archive, which have no work print and no negative. We had only a 2-1/4" contact print as the source. Esteban chose the images in this exhibition, which will run through the Spring of 2022.

If you’re interested in purchasing a piece please see the concierge, call 305-531-6100 or email [email protected] or [email protected] for more information.
