The Fashion Designers Expo Florida (FDE) is a full-fledged fashion week for rising designers to showcase their collections to the public including: media, buyers, and celebrities.

This season Fashion Designers Expo Florida is teamed up with the Susan G. Komen For the Cure Miami|FTL, the world's largest breast cancer organization. Susan G. Komen For the Cure Miami|FTL has raised more then $1.807 million in the fiscal year ending in March 2009 to support the fight against breast cancer. They also have a four-star charity rating, which is the highest level of support.
Bluffajo Cosmetics, "The Makeup with Skin Care in Mind," is the featured makeup line of FDE.

Academy of Glam is the headline sponsor for makeup artistry and hair design at this season's shows.
