Dominican Republic: Covering Dominican Fashion 08

Editor's note: The following is a translation of a blog article written by Joan Guerrero from the Dominican blog Duarte 101 [es] and is republished with permission.

Dominicana Moda or DM08 (Dominican Fashion) has already started and it appears that many are interested to attend and/or follow the event through alternative media. We investigated a bit and we present three original blogs that are presenting article after article, photograph after photograph, and everything else related to this event.

Anabelle Pérez is a photographer and also very fashion-minded. With her lens in hand, she presents details that the traditional media does not see. Just look at the images and we consider that they are of high quality.

Diana Suriel writes her blog about her personal happenings, but this time, her calendar is filled with events related to Dominicana Moda. If you want to see a specific runway show, check the list. Here she writes about her thoughts on the collection from Carlos de Moya.

Carlos de Moya es un excelente ser humano, y esto se refleja en sus creaciones. Lo de ayewr fue el “acabose”, Anda Miranda, después de haber caminado por todo el mundo, por fin aterrizó…Y de que manera. La colección estuvo f-a-b-u-l-o-s-a, el volumen y el trabajo artesanal merecen un 10. El estilismo estuvo acorde, en una colección que es puro otoño. La música de Vadir Gónzalez, le puso sazón: Anda Miranda, no mire pa’ lo’ lao’ (decía)y yo, querí pararme a bailar. Cabe destacar que Carlitos cumplió años antes de ayer, la sorpresa final fue su pastel de cumpleaños.

Carlos de Moya is an excellent human being and this is reflected in his creations. He outdid himself yesterday with Anda Miranda, after traveling throughout the world, he finally landed…and how. The collection was f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s, the volume and the artesanal work deserve a 10. The style was agreeable, in a collection that is pure autumn. The music of Vadir Gónzalez, added flavor: Anda Miranda, don't look from side to side (I said) and I, wanted to stand up and dance. It is worth mentioning that Carlitos’ birthday was the day before, and the final surprise was his birthday cake.

The newspaper Listín Diario also takes advantage of its resources to create an exclusive blog to provide complete coverage of DM08. We have – and we hope that the readers do to – high expectations from so that the media provides original coverage. Here it adds a little liveblogging:

Hubo un considerable retraso de mas de una hora y luego media hora de retraso entre desfile y desfile, algo que -se argumento- fue debido al cambio de ropa de 10 modelos que estuvieron en el desfile del creador local. Durante las proximas horas estaremos subiendo las fotos y los comentarios de los desfiles de hoy. Mientras tanto, las actividades aqui continuan hasta el cierre definitivo. Ahora mismo esta llevandose a cabo la cena de gala y luego el “Fashion Jam” en el area de la piscina.

There was a considerable delay of more than one hour and later a delay of half an hour between show and show, something that – it can be argued – was due to the change of clothes for 10 models that were a part of the show of the local designer. During the next hours, we will be uploading photos and commentary of today's show. Meanwhile, the activities continue until the show's close. Now there is a gala diner and later the “Fashion Jam” will take place in the pool area.
