In case you missed it, Ada and I recently hosted Uptown Curls in NYC, an event catered to women with naturally curly hair in the New York City area. We were completely grateful to have Dominican fashion designer Cenia Paredes on board as a sponsor. One lucky winner walked away with a Cenia New York HSN exclusive!
Cenias designs are true day to night wear that fit women of all shapes and sizes, the fit is fairly distinct. Celebrities alike have admired her work; Adrienne Bailon and Julissa Bermudez have been seen rocking Cenia New York.
When I met Cenia, she was such a sweetheart and seemed so supportive and even wanted to rock her own curls at the event! There were a few Cenia pieces that were out and about the event; one being the beautiful High Risk Red Keyhole Sheath that Ona wore!
Cenia’s dresses brilliantly fit women of all figures. Paredes is a Fashion Institute of Technology graduate who knew that the fashion industry needed more diversity. She currently has two new fits with her new collection titled Sea The Future. The fits are: The Cenia Fit (for pear-shaped woman, leaving more room in the hips while less at the bust area) and the Regular Fit which leaves more room at the bust, waist and hips (keeping the curvier woman in mind).
This HSN exclusive ranges from $80-$99 and is now available at hsn.com. There is no faja or shapewear necessary because Cenia’s dresses are fully lined with form fitting stretch fabrics leaving you with a seamless and elegant look!
“My love of fashion and design are inspired by my own experiences in not finding appropriate fits for my body type as a pear-shaped woman,” says Cenia. “The majority of today’s fashions are designed for a smaller version of the traditional hourglass figure, which only accounts for eight percent of America’s female population, while about 20 percent of America’s female population have pear-shaped body types.”
I rocked the Cenia Turqoise/Navy dress to the Latin Trends Dominican Influencer Event recently. Had my curlfriends Ada and Sherly checking out the fit. By the way, Sherly is also wearing a Cenia Tropical Paradise Printed Jumpsuit to support the Dominican Fashion Designer at this special occasion!
