R.A.I.N. Inc. Charity Gala at Marina Del Ray
As a Puerto Rican woman, born and raised in the South Bronx, I needed to push the envelope and prove the naysayers wrong, claiming that a size two or that a particular age group is the only type of beautiful. I knew I had to reassure women that beauty should be inclusive and feature diversity. I also understood that deep down within me, there was a voice screaming to reassure myself that a woman of my age, size, and background could indeed be successful at her "Second Act." Beauty should never be defined by your age, the size of your hips, or the color of your skin! The exact definition of beauty is the one that comes from within. We have had the honor of producing a fashion show in collaboration with RAIN Inc.'s yearly fundraising gala. The gala presented by RAIN Inc. benefits senior programming and has expanded to help those in need dealing with food insecurity. RAIN Models range in ages between forty-five and ninety. A heartfelt thank you @rain1964 for entrusting us and to those that brought this fashion show to life.
