Uptown Fashion Week shows Latin American Designers

Uptown Fashion Week presents Latin American designers during New York Fashion Week. It’s produced by Dominican New Yorker Albania Rosario.

The established designers do their own thing, but the rest are sponsored by Uptown Fashion Week. The show supports the designers with the venue, travel, models, and styling. The production is very Latin.
