The Fundación MIR charity, who runs 3 schools for more than 1500 children in La Romana, has just announced that Angel Sanchez, a judge for Project Runway Mexico, will be the designer presenting the fashion show during their annual gala celebration; the Fundación MIR Magical Splendor for Life.
This magnificent occasion, which has a fashion show as one of it’s principal highlights has seen designer duo Badgley Mischka showcasing their fabulously elegant and “old Hollywood” gowns for the last 3 consecutive years, making now the perfect time for a change…
Angel Sanchez of Venezuela, pays special attention to cut, fit and proportion which is why his creations fit the women who wear them better than a glove. His exquisite taste is what led his fashion house to rise so quickly in Latin America and eventually led him to expand internationally, when he opened the company’s headquarters in New York City in 1997. His celebrity clientele includes everyone from Taylor Swift, to Eva Longoria to Sandra Bullock who had her wedding gown designed by Sanchez.
Angel Sanchez collections are available at luxury retailers worldwide; Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue in the United States, Frattina in Mexico City, Al Ostoura in Kuwait, Bellisima & Novarese in Japan, and Novia in Korea, amongst others.
The Magical Splendor for Life gala by the Fundación MIR featuring the fashion show by Angel Sanchez will be celebrated on Saturday the 18th of January at Casa Grande, the Fanjul family’s Casa de Campo estate, while earlier that same day a golf tournament will be celebrated on the golf course of the La Romana Country Club.
