First NYFW featuring: Jeanette Limas

¡Hola to all the fashion lovers and enthusiasts out there!

Welcome back to!!!!

Let me just say how thrilled I am to be bringing you all another blog post. Towards the end of January, I was dealing with so much. Straight stress overload😩

I’m just thankful I can keep giving you all blog posts.

Other than that, I must also HUMBLY AND PROUDLY say Happy Black History Month!

With all that’s occurring for Black Excellence in Fashion, I can’t wait to share with you what I have in store!!!

Well, as mentioned in today’s blog post title, First NYFW featuring: Jeanette Limas, I got the opportunity to attend my very FIRST New York Fashion Week show and I’m still on cloud nine.

NYFW has always been on my bucket list since I was a little girl and having the opportunity to attend a show made me feel unstoppable. The world is truly my oyster and I’m up for all the grabbing.

Upon arriving at El Barrio’s Artspace PS 109 in NYC, I was enchanted by the massive walkway that led to the building.

Lights lined the concrete ground as I walked into the crowded space. The entryway of the runway had tall white walls that was placed in front of a massive wall.

In huge black lettering, Jeanette Lima’s name proudly stood. The energy in the room was filled with excitement and pride for Lima’s line.

Having started in 2015, Jeanette Limas is no amateur when it came time to showcase her minimal yet show stopping collection in NYC.

Jeanette Limas is no stranger to New York Fashion Week. Having already presented four collections in New York City, Thursday’s show highlighted Lima’s fifth collection.

Lima’s presentation proved to be a true testament of just how successful she has become in this field of fashion design.

Guests sat in white chairs as we were welcomed by a singer dressed in a signature Jeanette Lima long sleeved red dress. The garment moved beautifully as the singer glided  around the wooden floor. Once the artist took her place, it was showtime.

The singer continued to croon into the microphone as models walked gracefully down the runway.

Below, you’ll find just a few of my favorite pieces from Lima’s collection.





Jeanette Limas and I 🙂





Despite the frigid temps that Thursday night, I was grateful I came out to partake in Lima’s spectacular collection.

Thank you Jeanette Limas for continuously breaking down racial barriers in Fashion by showing others that we are truly magical. Plátano Power wins again.
