Fashion Show Honors Puerto Rico

Edwin Reyes, a young borough-based fashion designer who makes clothing for women is going to remember and pay tribute to the people of Puerto Rico who were impacted by Hurricane Maria during his fall/winter 2018 Fashion Show, which is called A Trip to Puerto Rico.

Reyes, who was profiled in a Bronx Times feature article recently, is seeking to promote the show, which will take place at The Point’s theater at 940 Garrison Avenue on Friday, September 14.

Reyes states: Unfortunately, because of the horrific natural disaster that struck the beautiful country of Puerto Rico, many people are struggling to survive.

The presentation will be given in recognition of the lives lost and for the people who are still suffering great pain.

A portion of the ticket sales and all donations will go back to the island for restoration purposes.

Tickets to the show are $15 per person, with a cocktail hour beginning at 7 p.m. and the show itself starting at 7:30 p.m. that evening.

Tickets can be purchased at the door or online.
