Puerto High Fashion Week is one of the most anticipated Fashion events of the year on the Island. This year it was held at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum in Hato Rey. To open Fashion Week they had the Elite Model Search Final, this year the beautiful model who won was 16 year old Paola Roman from Caguas, Puerto Rico, she will be representing Puerto Rico in Shangai China in December, Designer Eddie Guerrero also presented his collection that night, among others.
Many other amazing and talented designers presented their collections the rest of the nights. I went on Saturday , when I arrived I met Kenelma Figueroa a charming woman with a heart of gold, she is the Director of Models for Society, the project is for little girls to develop auto-esteem through modeling, they received a donation from the administration of PRHFW to go to one of the Fashion Shows and the look on their faces was priceless.
All of the designers that presented their collection that night were amazing. Then, the closing Fashion Show by The Blonds, what can I say, out of this world…they had a full house, it started with a video showing some of their star clients, like JLO, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga among others.
The collection was simply breathtaking, it was full of glitter, metals, chains, everyone was at awe with the designs. PRHFW did not disappoint us this year, but to be sincere they never do!
