Woman Encourages Delmarva Latinx Community to Participate in Annual Fashion Show

DELMARVA- A local Maryland woman is in search of talented Latinx individuals in the community who have a passion in the industry of beauty and fashion to be a part of the annual "Latin Fashion Week Colorado."

In light of Hispanic Heritage Month commencing, Socorro López shares that she has been immersed in the world of fashion for the past 40 years as a professional model, fashion designer, makeup artist and most recently, an image consultant.

Lópezis of Puerto Rican descent but moved to the Maryland area a few years ago. She said the grand seven-week long event, scheduled to take place Sept. 16-22 in the state of Colorado, has been going on for 10 years now, always during this time of the year to celebrate all cultures and walks of life--with a goal of uniting talented artists from all over the world.

López explained that it has always been in Colorado because two of the people in charge of the event reside there, but nevertheless, her mission is to spread the word and empower more Hispanic locals to showcase their work.

"It is my passion," she said. "When you love what you do, it is not work."

Due to the pandemic, this will be the first year the free event will be livestreamed online.

López said it takes hundreds of people scattered all over the U.S. and Latin America to pull this off every year, and they hardly wait for it to be over before they begin planning the next one.
