Up until about a week ago, I had never heard of Latino Fashion Week. But after I was asked to help out a friend and do a story for the Lawndale News, I was more than impressed with this 5-year old production. Not only does it promote the Latino community in a positive way, but it also gives a voice to local fashion designers and youth. The event begins next week and runs Nov. 1-6.
