Exciting news: I've been given the privilege of attending Latino Fashion Week as a under-22 blogger/journalist!! I plan to cover the event for both my blog and the217.com. I'll be attending the Passport to Design Fashion Ball this Saturday, November 13 at Mercedes Benz Chicago for one of the culminating events of the week-long tribute to fashion.
The evening will consist of an Awards Reception from 6-7:30 p.m. and then a Program/Runway show from 8-10 p.m., and all throughout, cocktails, wine, chef stations, musical performances and of course, amazing fashion.
One highlight is designer Lazaro Perez, famous for his breathtaking bridal wear, as seen below.
Another featured designer is Carlos Campos, international men's and women's clothing designer.
