Latinista Fashion Week Recap


( ENSPIRE Fashion ) Latinista Fashion Week Recap

On Thursday, Sept 14th ending NYFW -Latinista Lifestyle Collections, Latinista Fashion Week‘s  NY Spring Summer 2018 collections had the most buzz, fashionista’s and international attendees came and saw the one of a kind collections take place with a powerful finale of wearable art couture, and ready to wear apparel. This year’s presentations of CENIA NYC, Chris Barreto Collections, Cesar Galindo and Layanna Aguilar were more than amazing.

Layanna Aguilar featured her “One Love Collection” with beautiful geometrical cuts and meshed floral appliques.  “Layana Aguilar’s mission is to provide the armor in which women can present their best selves every day. Chris Barreto took the Latinista Fashion Week by storm with her wearable art collection of afghans and silk chiffon prints. Wearable art at its best! Cesar Galindo always aims to please with sequenced chiffons, floral prints, and fringed flowy dresses. Cenia Paredes Spring’ 18 Collection features a combination of flattering cocktail dresses, breezy maxis and smart day into dresses made in stunning exclusive prints and vibrant solids that captivate the eye and provoke an escape to an exotic island. Beauty looks created by HER Imports with Celebrity Hair Stylist, Tippi Shorter, creating a spring, fresh, crown-like French braid giving SS18 a whole new take on braiding. Makeup by always “Moore Fabulous” Vera Moore Cosmetics.

Latinista’s goal this year, says Founder + CEO, Dee Rivera of Latinista Lifestyle Collections was to create beauty, inclusivity and an opportunity to showcase amazing Latino/Latina designers at the top of their careers in order to make it accessible to everyone. The definition of Latinista means many things. It’s celebrating the food, fashion, beauty, art, music, and culture with the mix of rich Afro and Caribbean roots. Working with emerging artist like Jenny Alexandra who featured her collection of real artwork, the goals were accomplished. Although this was a finale of NYFW it was also the launch of Hispanic Heritage month!

In conclusion, Latinista Lifestyle Collection also partnered with Inca Kola USA and Friends of Lead-Free Children, which has a humanitarian mission of bringing medical professionals and health-related supplements to pregnant women and young children in the poor areas of the Dominican Republic. “We really want to spread the word on this amazing cause,” Rivera says. “They provide the bare essentials to these people, things we take for granted here in the U.S.”
