Latino Fashion Week Chicago 2016!

Hey guys!

I hope all is well. Thanks for reading! Today, I am writing you about my amazing experience at Latino Fashion Week 2016. Obviously, I owe a huge thank you to the people and staff at LFW for allowing me to enjoy the event as VIP/Media, as well as gifting me and my assistant VIP packages. That was a priviledge.

Just a quick exerpt from the website (linked below) explaining what Latino Fashion Week is:

"Latino Fashion Week® was created to support the talent of local, national and international Latino designers and is the premier resource institution for those in the Latino Fashion Industry. By Latinos, For Everyone."

Because this event was a three day event, I unfortunately was not able to attend the entire thing. But, I did get to attend the last two days where I had a blast! The entire ambiance of Latin culture mixed with high end fashion was the bomb indeed. The food that was served to us was great. There was a wide variety of meats, sides and drinks so that everyone could have satisfy their appetite. The music was fun and entertaining so that we were able to get a quick shimmy in before the fashion shows began.

While we were enjoying the VIP reception, I got a chance to interract with some of the vendors present such as Monique Boutique, Chica Fina, BUILD Chicago, NFV Entertainment and BeBuddha Jewelry. All of whom were very pleasant to speak with and had awesome products and services to offer. They are linked below so be sure to check them out!

Now, for the fashion show portion. Can we say "asombroso (amazing)"?!The entire production was well worth while. Some of the designers whom I got a chance to witness were Edgar Lozzano, Yirko Sivirich, Benito Santos and Wilfredo Gerardo. They blew my mind. With the intricate uses of texture and color, lines and draping as well as overall aesthetical appeal, these designers took both my and my assistants breath away. I am so happy to be able to say that I was front and center to see their collections. They are linked below so please check the out!

Needless to say, I had am unforgettable time and I hope to have the honor of attending next year's Latino Fashion Week Chicago. Enjoy the images and the links below!

Living My Best Life Tour: Studying At Harvard, Winning Awards and Walking The Runway!

  Hello all! Thank you so much for returning to my blog and reading this post. I have so much to tell you all because the last few months have been CRAZY! I'm not even sure where to start. I guess I'll begin with the awards that I have been so blessed to receive within the last two weeks. I have NEVER in my entire career of almost a decade managed to take home five awards in such a small time frame! I received two Virtual Visionary awards for Entrepreneurship & Community Service, two awards given by the Sara Williams Scholarship Fund with proceeds benefitting research at St. Jude Children's Hospital, and a Service Leadership award from the pageant system that I represent as their current Miss World, the Miss & Mrs. America Nation Organization ! It was so much fun to have the honor of strutting the runway at their Nationals Fashion Show a couple of weeks ago alongside my amazing sister queens! Prior to this, I hadn't modeled in a fashion show since I was a Fashio

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

Living My Best Life Tour: I'm Miss World AN 2020, FFP Awards 2020 and I Launched a Communications Firm

Hey guys!  Thanks for reading. I hope everyone is doing well. I know it's been quite a while since I've updated this blog but I've been doing a lot of work and a lot of cool things since the last time I posted. I needed to focus my time on things other than blogging for a while so that I could get things in line for my future success.  I guess I'll go in order of how things happened. First of all, I'm Miss World America Nation 2020 ! Last time you heard from me, I had a regional title in a different pageant system. Now, I have a title in a new system (since December) with which I've pledged to do community service on a global scale! I've been able to do a nice amount of work so far but we'll see how things pan out at the end of my reign in March ;)  Second, I was blessed enough to be able to successfully host the second annual Fresh Faces Project Awards in early March right before the quarantine. It was a hit! We were able to honor over 40 individuals an
