“Latin Ignition – The Magic of Art.”

 Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum to witness the incredible platform along with Estefan Enterprises, Inc. to present the thrilling work of designers 
Alvin Valley, 
Laura Garcia, Nabys Vielman, and César Galindo


The collections whit the runway in the hallowed halls of the art institute as Los Rabanes and DJ Hex Hector performed before a captivated audience.


Latin Ignition showcased a movement that highlights the work of some of the most prolific Latino artisans as the Latin American market makes up some 18% of the population of the United States and therefore a significant proportion of the Country’s creative energy.  Uniquely, the producers took measures to appropriately make sure that each worker – not just designers and models, but also behind the scenes hair and make-up artists were financially compensated for the show.  Highlighting a deep appreciation for the art world and fashion industry, Estefan and Consuelo set the agenda during NYFW that will ripple positively around the globe to highlight the need for inclusivity at all levels.

After graduating from the University of Miami, he opened his first boutique in Coconut Grove, Florida in 1995.  Noted by Bazaar and Vogue as “the King of Pants,” Valley’s success has roots in the rapidly growing cult-craze for the renowned fit and style of his trousers.

Emilio Estefan is a Cuban-American musician and producer. Estefan has won 19 Grammy Awards. He first came to prominence as a member of the Miami Sound Machine. He is the husband of singer Gloria Estefan, father of son Nayib Estefan and daughter Emily Estefan, and the uncle of Spanish-language television personality Lili Estefan.

Estefan is credited with paving the way for the crossover explosion of Latin music of the late 90s, mostly through artists that Estefan himself brought to the forefront of the US music stage, including his wife Gloria Estefan, as well as Jon Secada, Ricky Martin, and Shakira.

Estefan received the BMI "Songwriter of the Year" award in 2005 and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He also received the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award by the Songwriters' Hall of Fame in 2009. In November 2015, President Barack Obama awarded Estefan the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor. In 2019 he also received the Gershwin Prize from the Library of Congress.


About Consuelo Vanderbilt:

Most recently appearing in an exclusive article in “Elysian Magazine,” Consuelo Vanderbilt was listed as one of the most influential and inspirational women in New York City today. The American singer, composer, songwriter, actress, spokesmodel, entrepreneur and philanthropist was born in New York and is a maternal descendant of the legendary Vanderbilt family. Delving into the arts at a young age, she has been a fierce presence in the industry for decades.


As a successful musician, Consuelo has performed around the world and shared stages with such music luminaries as Vanessa Carlton, Mya and Joe Cocker. She landed her first record deal at the age of 21, and later, founded her own record label C&R Productions in 2010.  Shortly thereafter, her first four singles landed her in the Top 20 on the Billboard Dance Charts. Her debut single “Naked” spent 16 weeks on the charts, while her follow-up “Feel So Alive” earned her Billboard’s #2 Breakout Artist honor. In 2014, her hit, “Body Needs,” broke Billboard’s Top 5, and the following year, Consuelo’s highly anticipated pop dance album I’m Just Me dropped in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, as well as the United States. Consuelo is well known in the fashion industry, and in 2015, teamed up with powerhouse network HSN to launch Homage by Consuelo Vanderbilt. The pearl jewelry collection was inspired by an engagement ring she inherited from her great grandmother, Consuelo Vanderbilt Earl, which is thought to have once belonged to Consuelo, the Duchess of Marlborough.
