On April 21st, 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, trim, detailing, and beadwork and are available internationally via the online store (www.BurjuShoes.com) 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, several customized shoes, and her bridal collection as well. The models were wearing dresses by Kathlin Argiro and jewelry by Lisa Linhardt, and the featured bridal gowns were by Lisa Krizner-George of Vanilla Pink. Live entertainment was provided by DJ Danny Ramirez and famed salsa pianist, â€œPulpo,â€ and the hors dâ€™oeuvres and mini desserts were courtesy of Las Chicas Bakery.
Guests were treated to discounted custom shoe ordering (20% of all shoes + Buy One, Get One for $40) in the private 2nd floor Shoe Salon where event-goers could touch, feel, and try Burju on for themselves!
