Marchesa, the famous New York-based fashion company run by Georgina Chapman, will be the guest of honor at the sixth edition of Dominican Fashion Week. Guests of honor at previous Dominican Fashion Week have been Carolina Herrera, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, Hannibal Laguna and Hernán Zajar, among others. The event is scheduled to take place from October 17-22.
Marchesa is one of the world’s most popular clothing brands, the favorite of artists such as Penelope Cruz, Blake Lively, Jennifer Lopez, Kate Hudson, Cameron Diaz, Selena Gomez, Halle Berry, Leighton Meester, Rihanna, Eva Longoria, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Olivia Wilde, Kristen Stewart, Sandra Bullock and Hailee Steinfeld.
Although the center of this fashion festival is the “El Embajador Occidental Hotel,” a co-sponsor of this Caribbean fashion extravaganza, this year the organizers have put together a special event called “Santo Domingo at Night,” an outdoor fashion show that will take place in Santo Domingo’s famous seaside Boulevard.
The Malecón, or Seaside Boulevard, is Santo Domingo’s most important avenues. The avenue borders the Caribbean Sea, and is considered to be one of the city’s most emblematic thoroughfares.
This outdoor activity is sponsored by the Tourism Cluster ofSanto Domingo, as well as other tourism-oriented companies.
