Road to Miami: The desert wears Prada

MARFA, Texas -- Marfa, Texas, used to be considered the middle of nowhere until a small Prada store put it on the map.

Constructed in 2005, the tiny storefront was built by artists with permission from the fashion brand to use their product and signage.

FOX 5's Heather Lake and photographer Zak Bartleet visited the store as part of their coast-to-coast road trip to Super Bowl LIV in Miami. Inside, the store is filled with donated luxury shoes and handbags from 2005. Visitors can't step inside or make any purchases, but they can snap pictures out front and leave a love lock as part of the growing collection around the building.

Upcoming stops along Heather and Zak's Road to Miami include:

  • Austin, Texas
  • New Orleans, La.
  • Pensacola, Fla.
  • Gainesvillle, Fla.
  • Orlando, Fla.
  • Miami, Fla.

Follow along with their trip on the FOX 5 Morning News, on our website and the FOX 5 app.

You can also follow Heather on social media, here and here, where she and Zak will be taking recommendations for places to stop in each city.
