I had the honor of Covering Designer Nelly Trinidad and Yolyne Negon’s Fashion Show Majestic Curves this past weekend, in Ponce , Puerto Rico and it was amazing. I arrived at the Melia Hotel on Saturday and met up with the girls because they did makeup and hair there, the makeup artists were Abinelys Garcia and Ana Garcia and these girls did an amazing job, the models looked fabulous.
The Fashion show started at 8PM and they were the third Fashion Show to present their collection, the Plus Size Models came out and rocked the runway, I always listen to comments from people in the audience and one lady was at awe with the amazing designs she loved how the designers combined the colors gray metallic and red.
The last model to close the show was IPM Model Ana Garcia wearing a red dress that was one of the most beautiful designs I saw that night. I was so exited because it was the first time that South Fashion Week had a Plus Size Fashion Show and the producer of the show Rene Cruz was very pleased with the outcome, so history was made at Ponce, Puerto Rico this year having Plus Size Models on the runway at this mega event!
