Albania Rosario is the voice, the woman who brought Latin designers to the forefront of New York Fashion week and is the Executive Director & Founder of Fashion Designers of Latin America (FDLA).
One of the millions of immigrant stories
I love my country, the Dominican Republic. I love Uptown New York, where I’ve resided most of my adult life. I’m one of the millions of immigrant stories. I came here, I’ve struggled, I’ve conquered and I continue to strive for higher levels of success. The goal is always to support the Latino movement here. But we must look further and realize the importance of our platform to empower the Latinos in the diaspora, an often forgotten but crucial detail when it comes to uplifting our community.
How One Woman Created A Local Global Movement
When Albania Rosario arrived to the United States from the Dominican Republic at age 18, she came alone. She did not speak a word of English. Not one word. But sometimes, vision speaks louder than words. Sometimes not even a basic lingusitic understanding is needed to achieve greatness. Albania is a perfect example.
