Fashion in the City is the brainchild of Vision Entertainment booking agent Cutberto (Beto) Aguilar. When asked about what inspired the event Aguilar said, “I came up with the concept because I think we need to showcase our local talent and this was the perfect event. This time I partnered with d’primeramano magazine and Borges Media.”

Aguilar indicated he expected an audience of about 400 guests for the evening’s event matching last year’s attendance.

This was the second year of the Fashion in the City event. Aguilar stated that last year’s event was held at Antigua Ultra Lounge.

Aguilar explained why they chose to hold the event at the Fusion International Arts Center saying, “Miguel (Borges) has friends and he works here. I was looking for a good place that was larger and nice to make this a success.”

Aguilar is also CEO of Vision Entertainment a company that acquires and promotes talented entertainment for private and public parties and events. Vision Entertainment presented a well organized Fashion in the City event.
