HSN’s Cenia Paredes Designed Gowns For ‘Hamilton’ Gals For Tonys

June 21, 2016

Since we are half Puerto Rican, we couldn’t be more thrilled and proud of the success of Lin-Manuel Miranda and his literally revolutionary, game-changing Broadway play, “Hamilton.”

Miranda’s work just won 11 Tony Awards, and on Sunday The New York Times did a story about how his family members from the commonwealth and the isle of Manhattan all stayed at the swanky Mandarin Oriental hotel the weekend of the awards.

The article mentions that his mom, Luz Towns-Miranda, a clinical psychologist, and wife, Vanessa Nadal-Miranda, a lawyer and scientist, both wore gowns by New York designer Cenia Paredes to the Tony Awards.

The story also says, as we have already blogged, the Latina Paredes will be selling pieces from her clothing line on HSN starting June 24, this Friday.

Nice plug!

Latina Designer Cenia Paredes Coming To HSN

June 12, 2016

AcHSN, the home shopping network that makes the most effort to target women of color, is adding a little more Latin flava.

Fashion designer Cenia Paredes, who is Dominican, is bringing her Cenia Fit apparel collection to HSN, the New York Daily News reported last week.

She will debut June 24 with a line that she says is tailored for the bodies of Dominican — or dare we say some Hispanic — women have, namely pear-shaped.

That is different than the mass-market fashions made for women with hourglass figures, she is quoted as saying.

Maybe her clothes will actually fit us. (Actually, we just noticed that her clothes come in regular fit and “Cenia Fit,” which is for curvier gals.)

Cenia trumpeted the fact that she is coming to HSN on her company’s Facebook page, which has many photos of her sheath dresses.

Some of them are already available on
