[San Juan Moda] Day 5: Dominicana Moda + Plus Fashion

The evening began with designers from Dominicana Moda, the official alliance of San Juan Moda in the Carribean. Moises Quesada presented his collection “Marie Vit“. Which featured edgy sports wear with midi shorts and sexy transparent designs. The designer has always been known to create a show stopping runway and this didn’t cease to surprise.



Another designer from Dominicana Moda that presented last night was Jose Jhan and his collection ‘Dream in Marrakech’. With his dessert inspired collection, he presented a wide rage of tans and blues. Featuring nature inspired prints, lots of natural fibers and leather. As always the designers tailoring was impeccable and styling on point.


I’m very excited to say that this is the first official plus presentation in a major fashion event on the island. San Juan Moda again breaks the barriers and presented designers Carlos Reyes, Elda Samano, Emmanuel Acosta, Javier Arnaldo, Osvaldo Morales, Patricia Rivera and Lizet Míró that showcased an impressive array of designs. From maxi dresses, frocks, tunics, ball gowns and ready to wear designs. The wide variety of design presented last nigh gave the modern plus woman a diverse selection to show off her personal style.

Being a plus woman in the fashion industry, I hope that the organization continues to present designers with plus creations and as always keep up with the mentality of being innovative and current with the times. I can’t wait for the next season and see what they have in-store and hope that my new project can be featured in the next season. Stay tuned!


[Red Carpet] 22nd Screen Actors Guild Awards ’16

The 22nd Screen Actors Guild Awards was held today, Another award ceremony, another amazing red carpet. For all of you that don’t know the SAG Award is an accolade given by Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) to recognize outstanding performances in film and primetime television. This is considered to be a very prestigious award, since its awarded by fellow artist. But enough about the ceremony, lets talk about the dresses.

The starlets today were impressive, each of them represented their individual style and looked completely flawless. It wasn’t an easy task to pick my top five, but I was taken aback with Rachel McAdams in Elie Saab Haute Couture, Claire Danes in Stella McCartney, Christina Ricci in Christopher Kane, Viola Davis in Zac Posen and Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton.
