The First Fashion Show in Cuba

August 1996.
I was said to be the first to hold a fashion show in Cuba.
Then I held another in 2000.
Then another in 2009, at the Hotel Nacional de Cuba, commemorating the 80th anniversary of Cuba-Japan diplomatic relations.
A work of an artist was exhibited at the entrance.
The two will be reunited in heaven.
The hands of the clock turn slowly, proud of salsa, the sun and the revolution.

1996 年 8 月 Cuba で
初めてファッションショーをした人と言われた。
それから 2000 年
そして 2009 年日本との国交 80 周年を記念した
ショーはホテルナショナルで。
その入り口にあったアーティストの作品。
天国で二人は再会しているだろう。
ゆっくり回る時計の針。サルサと太陽と革命を誇りに。
