Perry Ellis International, Inc announced that it has signed Cuban-born actress, model, and dancer Aylin Mujica as its Rafaella brand ambassador. Ms. Mujica will appear as the face of the brand on the Rafaella website, social media channels, and in the brand's image and advertising campaigns. Ms. Mujica will also be doing select personal appearances on behalf of Rafaella apparel throughout the year.
"We are thrilled to be working with Aylin," said Oscar Feldenkreis, president & chief operating officer of Perry Ellis International. "Not only is she incredibly talented and has a terrific sense of style, but she also understands that not all women are shaped the same. The growing Hispanic population in the U.S. presents a unique opportunity for the Rafaella brand which has seen growth in Ecom sales in more densely Hispanic populated areas throughout the country. Aylin was immediately drawn to Rafaella's curvy fitting pant, popular among Latina women. She was a natural fit."
Aylin was quoted, "I am honored to work with Rafaella, a brand I have long admired and worn in both my personal and professional life. I first fell in love with the perfect fit of the Rafaella pants, and then was drawn to all the beautiful colors and prints. They're easy to wear and so comfortable."
Most recently, Aylin played the main villain, Fernanda, on the hit Telemundo program, Corazon Valiente and played a lead role in the theatrical production of Obscuro Total, directed by Fernando Colunga. Aylin, has also co-hosted Latin Billboards for six consecutive years and the Mexican Billboards for the past five years. This month Aylin will co-host Telemundo's Top Chef Estrellas, and will appear in Rafaella brand advertising campaigns this spring in a variety of fashion magazines which include Hispanic titles.
