Colombian designer Paris Rodriguez will break the mold with a runway show at New York Fashion Week (NYFW), where she will give all the spotlight to entrepreneurial women as models.
After dressing celebrities like Becky G, Paty Cantu, Alejandra Ambrosi, Stephanie Salas and Maite Perroni, Rodriguez will invite five famous female entrepreneurs to convey a message of empowerment on the NYFW stage.
"Each dress will represent the emotions that an entrepreneur has to live day by day to fulfill that dream she has in her heart. We will have only models with ongoing ventures. Their names will be released soon. My purpose with this show is to inspire Latinos to fulfill their dreams. I want to thank the Art Fashion Show, along with Libby Jones and her producer Erike Rosete, for inviting us to this great event," the designer said through an official statement.
Rodriguez, born in the coffee region of Colombia and currently based in the United States, has a booming career in the fashion industry, with special dedication to the world of women's clothing. She has received several awards from the international textile industry.
Her creations are distinguished by a contemporary style, where the female figure is enhanced by garments made with a careful textile selection and are of excellent quality.
The designs she's created are present in places such as Dubai, Mexico, United States, Canada, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and the Philippines. The garments have been used in in publications such as Harper's Bazaar, Elle, Maxim, L'Officiel, Cosmopolitan, and ¡Hola!, among others.
Now, with her new project Emprende Hoy, which will launch after fashion week, she hopes to guide Latinos who dream of entrepreneurship, showing them how to get the capital to start and share her knowledge of how she has made it big.
