Dominicana MODA

The island of Hispaniola is half Spanish, half French and a well-publicized mecca for recruiting baseball talent and lanky, exotic models.   During a week in October design talents from across South and Central America, Spain and the Caribbean converge on Santo Domingo for a fashion week event that can rival the ready-to-wear shows in New York and London.

The Dominicana MODA team transforms Hotel Occidental El Embajador from a stately landmark, to a haute hangout appointed with slick Philippe Starck furnishings and the vibrancy of Rio.  Latin-techno vibes pour from deejays who serve a tempo for the march of stilettos that shuttle between slick lounges sponsored by Miller Beer, Grey Goose and Johnnie Walker.  Shows attract crowds you would expect for a visit from the Pope.  When the catwalk lights dim and disco balls are lit nightlife twirls into dawn.
