It is not the first time that fashion has served as a vehicle for raising awareness and raising funds for a good cause. That is why this year the independent fashion initiative Changing Room that has been carried out for a decade in Europe and now arrives in Puerto Rico will feature not only exclusive designs by artists from different parts of Europe and Latin America, but also with a special collection to raise funds for the benefit of a good cause.
This time the ground-breaking event hits the island of enchantment where it will take over one of the floors of the TRYP By Wyndham hotel to turn the rooms into small shops filled with exclusive pieces made by talented independent designers.
"The Changing Room is already a benchmark for independent European fashion and we aim to achieve the same in Puerto Rico," Luis Vidal, producer and creator of the event in Barcelona, said in a statement. "[It is] a breath of fresh, transgressive and creative air to the fashion sector in Puerto Rico."
In this edition Zulema Arroyo-Farley, founder of the non-profit organization Artz Cure Sarcoma, will be the godmother of the project that will serve as a vehicle to raise awareness about this disease. Also joining the cause are students from the International School of Design and Architecture of the Universidad del Turabo in Puerto Rico, who will design the Alive in Yellow collection made up of pieces in yellow -tone that represents sarcoma-, the proceeds of which will be destined to This school and this foundation whose mission is to find a cure for this rare form of cancer.
The event, the first of its kind in Latin America, will also feature shoes, handbags and jewelry that can be purchased at that time by fashion lovers who will attend the exclusive event to be held on October 22.
