Fashion and Music always seem to be synonymous with each other, one always influencing the other. Music has always been a part of my life, since I was baby there was never a shortage of Mexican music being played. From the time we woke up until we went to bed, music was always in the background. My father loved music and he always made sure we loved it too. Between my father blasting the record player and my mother sewing on her machine, I think it was impossible for me not to love both fashion and music. Although I didn't grow up to be a fashion designer or musician, they both have strong influence in my life. I became a blogger instead....LOL
I remember a point in my life where Spanish and Latino music was rarely heard on the radio or on TV. I always listened to it at home because of my Latino heritage, but when I heard it on the radio as well, it was heavenly. Over past decade Latin artist has made major impacts in both music and fashion industry. Artist Jennifer Lopez have influenced both genres. JLo is not only an award-winning singer, but has a very successful fashion line. It's so refreshing to see Latinas like JLo being a major player in an industry traditionally dominated by men. She is a triple threat no doubt, singer, actress, and fashion designer. Definitely a great role model for Latina women.
Another great Latino artist is Enrique Iglesias, who took the music world by storm. Guess it helped that is dad, Julio Iglesias was already a major Spanish singer world wide. I love that both these artist have made major impacts both in English and Spanish music worlds. Being bilingual I get to enjoy both these artist music in both languages. Some how I do love some songs more in Spanish, they have more soul and meaning to me. I am even more excited to experience both these artist very soon in Las Vegas. I have never been to a concert in Las Vegas and having Enrique and JLo be the first makes it more special.
