Sunday, November, 12th 2017: I had the honor to participate in “Runway Puerto Rico organized and ran by Nathalia JMag. Since the U.S. Government wasn’t doing too much to help, she decided to host a fashion show to raise awareness and money for the victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.


Located in Boston, Massachusetts at District Hall in Seaport, the show was amazing! It was my first time traveling on a Megabus to a city four hours away to a place I have never been before. I don’t know what I was expecting from the city before going, but while I was there, it didn’t cease to amaze me. While it did remind me a lot of Minneapolis, Minnesota, the city welcomed me with opened arms.


“Runway Puerto Rico” was one of the smoothest runway shows I’ve participated in. Nathalia did an excellent job at organizing the event including models, production, hair, and makeup. There were four Project Runway/Project Runway junior alumni there including me, Nathalia JMag, Linda Marcus, and Ruby Mac! Along with them were seven other amazing designers who I was so happy to meet! During the show, I ran into some other and finally got to meet other Project Runway Alumni including Cornelius Ortiz and Erin Robertson (Winner of Season 15). Everyone was so nice and welcoming.


At the show, I presented eight looks from my “PLASTIC” collection from NYFW with Fashion Sizzle. While I am not the best at the whole “video blogging” thing, I managed to capture a few scenes from the show and the BTS!

Society talks a lot about what it means to help others. People often say that you should always help those in need, but it seems like a lot of people think there is only a certain time of the year where you should go out of your way to help. Helping others should be a lifestyle. Not something you do when you’re expected to. Whenever there’s a chance to help someone in need, take it because, in the end, you’d want help too.
