On the move: Peace Love World opens on Miracle Mile

Plw_logoAlina Villasante’s Peace Love World is on the move again. The Cuba-born entrepreneur's Doral-based casual-chic fashion company opened its new flagship store at 225 Miracle Mile in Coral Gables, which is its sixth corporate-owned retail location in the Miami area and another milestone in its short life as a global brand. 

Plwimage002Peace Love World took root after Villasante began giving her “I AM’ T-shirts (I Am Peace, I Am Love, I Am Happiness) to friends and the demand quickly grew. Peace Love World  opened its first retail store in South Miami in 2009. Since then, the fashion company has been on a tear, with its designs sold in hundreds of boutiques worldwide. Its fashion line has broadened too:  Peace Love World still offers designer T-shirts but also a full line of fashions and accessories for men, women, children, even dogs.  Its brand has a cult-like following and growing list of celebrity fans, including singer/songwriter and actress Maria Conchita Alonso, shown here with Villasante at the opening gala for the new Peace Love World Miracle Mile store.
