We met Flora Montes, the director and founder of The Bronx Fashion Week back in May 2017 when we presented a few of our style related videos in the program. We were amazed by the structure, the professionalism, the organization, the talent, and max attendance. It was a dope event that represented The Bronx proudly.
Flora, 52, was recently featured on the NYTimes, believes that “Somewhere along the line I was meant to be the vessel that brought it to life.”
The ambitious single mother of two had her first event draw close to 1,000 visitors who watched models of diverse races, ages, and body types swagger the work of local designers. She is now on the verge of creating a Bronx staple.
August 26th event is hosted by Rebecca Gitana Torres, a Home, Garden & Style expert who loves to show the world how to “Remix their Lives.” She has produced several Lifestyle Specials that have aired throughout NYC even garnering a nomination for the “wow factor” on Public Television. Recently, Rebecca received attention for her work on the “Latina Icons” photo series where she transformed herself into six Latina Icons in one afternoon. Her hair, makeup, wardrobe and set design received attention from NBC News, Vibe Magazine, Latina Magazine and several other prominent news publications.
The Bronx Fashion Week will be featuring fashion deSIgners Sofia Davis, Editor in Chief of Fashion Avenue News &Fashion DESIGNER, Celebrity Shoe Designer John Ashford, Celebrity Fashion Designer Shadeth, Harlem Fashion Week CEO & Fashion Designer Yvonne Jewel, up-and-coming New Designers Nan-Seo & Marcelle. And much more in the programming.
