Last night, professional salsa dancer, Burju Perez, officially launched her new dance-inspired shoe line, Burju Shoes.  Burju currently inventories over 50 styles of shoes (for men, women, and children) which can all be custom ordered in terms of style, color combination, width, height of heel (from 1 ¾” to 3 ¾”), trim, detailing, and bead-work and are available via the online store and in select retail boutiques worldwide. The event featured a slew of impromptu fashion shows every 20 minutes throughout the evening showcasing her new line with live music by DJ Danny Ramirez and famed salsa pianist, “Pulpo,” The models wore dresses by Kathlin Argiro and jewelry by Lisa Linhardt, as well as featured bridal gowns by Lisa Krizner-George of Vanilla Pink.  Guests were well fed by Las Chicas Bakery's hors d’oeuvres and mini desserts.
