MARIANA RODRIGUEZ UNVEILS A CUSTOM REX FABRICS DESIGNED DURING THE 2016 BILLBOARD LATIN MUSIC AWARDS RED CARPET
If you’re looking for one-of-a-kind fabrics, you won’t have to look any further once you arrive at Rex Fabrics. From silks to embroideries and laces, our grand selection of exclusive fabrics combined with the experience of our in-house couture designers will provide you with an opportunity to create the garment of your dreams.
On Thursday, April 28, 2016, Mariana Rodriguez, Host of Telemundo’s Acceso Total, wore a nude colored couture jumpsuit embellished with metallic designs while reporting live from the red carpet at the 2016 Billboard Latin Music Awards. The final look was paired with a transparent cape which Mariana used to add a touch of elegance and glamour to the jumpsuit. Prior to Mariana’s television debut on the carpet, the Telemundo crew visited our store to search for the perfect fabric to use for Mariana’s custom design. When Mariana arrived at Rex Fabrics, she described the store as “fashion heaven” and a place where you could find any fabric you could ever imagine!
Once she took a tour of the upper and the lower levels of the store, Mariana met with Ricardo Aldama, Owner of Rex Fabrics, to discuss why Rex Fabrics has become a hot spot for celebrities, athletes and socialites who are looking for custom couture apparel. During her store visit, Mariana sifted through a selection of bedazzled, solid and print fabrics before making her final decision on the fabric she wanted to use for her custom “Latin Billboards red carpet look.” Mariana wanted to shine on the red carpet and that’s exactly what our atelier designers created for the show! Mariana loved the idea of incorporating a cape into her final look because it’s a big trend among the most talked about celebrities like Rihanna and Lady Gaga.
Mariana looked through Rex Fabric’s vast selection of fabrics until she came across her favorite print. As a way to make her loyal Telemundo viewers feel like they were part of her design process, Mariana asked the general public to vote online for the fabric they thought she would choose for the show. The online polls all seemed to agree with her final choice of fabric! Drum roll please…

After scheduling her two fittings at the store, Mariana was ready to rock her one-of-a-kind jumpsuit and cape at the Latin Billboard Music Awards which were held at the Bank United Center in Coral Gables on Thursday, April 28, 2016.
