A casual start

The first half of the show focused on more casual wear, with designers showcasing ready-to-wear clothing. Each collection was different, with the only common thread being that they were all vibrant representations of each designer’s individuality. Some of the designers, such as Jasive Fernandez, Duane Topping and the Factory Fashion team, choreographed dances to accompany the models and models as they walked.

After the first half of the show, the guests enjoyed a brief intermission, followed by Mojardín’s presentation to the second guest of honor, the star designer Mitzy. The famous Mexican designer expressed his happiness and honor at receiving recognition for 50 years of professional career. “My native Michoacán did not do me this honor. Being invited to LFWC alongside my fellow Latino designers is a dream,” he said.

The looks for the night

During the second part of the show, viewers saw more formal wear and evening looks. Those present enjoyed the women’s collections from Alejandro Moreno, Alonso Máximo, Salvador Miranda and Villanueva Designs. Meanwhile, Francisco Rojas and Yenny Hernández presented the designs for the men. The accessory of the night was embroidered crystals, with many of the creations sparkling under the catwalk lights.

Norberto Mojardín closed the night with his collection dedicated to exalting women. A video of the song “Canción sin Miedo” by Vivir Quintana was shown. The song speaks out against the rampant violence against women in Latin America, asking the world for help to stop this pandemic of femicides. Mojardín’s creations reflected his vision of women as vibrant, life-giving beings who deserve to be honored and praised.

The entire night was a wonderful celebration of the artistic spirit in our vibrant and talented Latin American community. It was an extraordinary spectacle.
