Hispanic Owned Fashion House (NYC)

Don't panic people, we aren't taking your jobs haha. Just got this from a frat brother in NYC. Latino's don't just wear FUBU or listen to Reggaeton, we are also classy :).

The picture above is a Hispanic owned fashion house called Zara, from SPAIN. NY Mag sums it up:

Each season, this affordable, fast-fashion retailer from Spain rolls out trendy, versatile collections with a global appeal. With stores in more than 50 countries, the Zara aesthetic focuses on chic, well-tailored items, many of which pay homage to runway looks by designers like Chanel, Calvin Klein, and Louis Vuitton. At each airy, split-level boutique, shoppers find sculptured blazers, slim trousers, and ethnic-edged pieces like breezy boho-chic tops and safari skirts for women; men can browse through the excellent selection of suiting, dress shirts, and knitwear. While most of the stock tends toward dressier, office-appropriate styles, casual sportswear like shorts, hoodies, and tees, as well as seasonal outerwear, occupies a solid chunk of the selling floor. — Carolyn Murnick

There's plenty more of these in NY but we'll highlight later, can't just spill the beans on one post.

Shout out to RUBEN for giving me the heads up.
