Winter 2-1978


Worth Avenue is viewed as one of the most famous shopping districts in the state of Florida. The area first gained retail insight when The Everglades Club was built on this road in 1918. This club held weekly fashion shows showing the latest trends and designs around the world. In 1938, the Worth Avenue Association formed, which still governs the general look and upkeep of this famous area. In present days, the avenue has over 200 shops that offer retail ranging from high fashion designs to antique paintings.
