Chyno Miranda is the second Latin American artist to receive the title of ambassador of the New York Men's Fashion Week after the Colombian singer J Balvin. The Venezuelan urban music singer, who was part of the successful duo Chino & Nacho, opens his way as a trend setter, and tells journalist Birmania Rios what this distinction means for him.

"Personally it's my first time at New York Fashion Week and I find it exciting to be able to live this experience and learn more about fashion, as well as being able to be an ambassador for my Latino audience," Chyno said. "I’m a lover of two types of styles: street fashion and also elegant classic style. I like to explore these two worlds and give it my original and genuine touch. I like to express with my outfit what I feel inside," added the singer of “Quedate Conmigo."

Among the list of previous ambassadors of the NYFW for Men's, is baseball player Matt Harvey, basketball player Dwayne Wade, skateboarder Shaun White, actor Jerry O'Connell, model Kellan Lutz, among others.

The resource for fashion, beauty, media, and culture, CFDA, kicked off the men’s spring-summer 2017 collections on July 11th to 13th with 65 shows and presentations. Of those, 30 designers will be showing at Skylight Clarkson Sq, the official home of the NYFW: Men’s collections this July. New on the  schedule are OAK, Assembly New York, C.P. Company, N-p-Elliott, Bespoken, Linder, David Hart x Hart Schaffner Marx, and Katama. Additionally, the CFDA will have six shows taking place at the newly-opened Cadillac House.

With the ongoing conversation around the future nature of fashion shows, 13 designers are pursuing alternative show formats that address consumer relevancy with “see-now, buy-now” or hybrid collections.
