LATINISTA™ Fashion Week started in 2011 with IMAN Cosmetics & Latina Magazine and it is now on its 4th year. The goal was to give high-end designers as well as to discover new Latino/Latina designers and give them a new platform to show during Fashion Week and to the Hispanic demographic millennial generation. We have grown rapidly and now it becomes one of the running and successful fashion platforms during New York Fashion Week not just for Hispanics but for fashion insiders as well. Celebrity Designer Cesar Galindo who joined the runway in 2013 caught the vision and has now joined forces and collaborated with LATINISTA™ to take it to new levels. LATINISTA™ Fashion Week featured Cesar Galindo archive of his work January 2015 at the Historic El Museo Del Barriosponsored by Ralph Pucci and was the first designer to do an exhibit at the museum.
We are now presenting during Fashion Week February 9th.
