Disclosure: This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and the TuVida App.
When it comes to Latinos in fashion, you can’t help but think of designers like Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, or even Isabel Toledo. They may be the biggest names in fashion today, but do you ever think about how they got their start? This is why I love events like Latino Fashion Week (LFW). They are created to introduce us to emerging and talented Latino designers. Fresh off their Dallas show, LFW came to Los Angeles! I was invited on behalf of the new Tu Vida app, to check out and share my experience.
With my phone in hand, I made my way to Boulevard3 in Hollywood. Before I even hit the red carpet, I picked up my credentials and immediately posted on the new Tu Vida app. This just released app connects Latinos with Latinos and those who appreciate the Latino culture! It’s designed in an “ask-and-answer” format so that all users can share their wisdom, resources, and experiences with each other. You can follow by temas (topics)…my favorite is “El Look,” the fashion topic. As you’ll be able to see by all of my posts from the show. And if you don’t speak or read fluent Spanish like me, don’t worry. You’ll find posts in English too!
It’s really easy to use and You can download the Tu Vida app now from Google Play for Android now. The iOS version should be available soon. I’ll definitely let you know when it is! When you download it, make sure you follow me. You’ll find me in the “El Look” topic feed. As you can see, I was able to share some fun photos, post, and answer any questions anyone had.
Before the show started, we had the honor of hitting the red carpet with the Co-founder of LFW Arabel Alva Rosales and President of Tu Familia Marie Quintana. This is one of my favorite red carpet pics of all time! Us Latina bloggers had such an amazing time. I can’t wait for next year!
After the photo opps, we were treated to the runway show, which featured designs by TintaMar, Timoteo, Ximena Valero, Emillio O., Antonio Barragan, and Lazaro Perez. Fashion is so inspiring, especially when I get to see what designers from different cultures bring to the table. Love it!
