PUERTO RICAN PRIDE

Ricardo Muñiz, one of our favorite NY photographers, reached out to designers of Puerto Rican heritage in order to create this fashion editorial and to share his "Boricua" pride with EthanSays readers.

There is a tiny island in the Caribbean Sea that is so densely populated that it actually has the highest number of people per square foot in the whole western hemisphere. Four million call this island paradise home. Over the years, another 2.5 million have made their homes in the continental United States. This island paradise is named Puerto Rico. New York City, with its own population of over one million Puerto Ricans, is the unofficial capital of Puerto Rican culture--twice as many Puerto Ricans live in NYC than in the island's capital of San Juan.

PUERTO RICAN PRIDE

Puerto Rico, also known as Borinken, its Taíno Indian name, prides itself on its history of immigration and multiculturalism. Puerto Ricans, or Boricuas as we often call ourselves, are a mix of Amerindian, African and European cultures and peoples. Many international music, sports, literature and film stars are of Puerto Rican heritage including Jennifer López, Marc Anthony, Miguel Cotto, Ricky Martín, Rita Moreno, Felix Trinidad, Roberto Clemente, Christy Turlington, Don Pedro Albizú Campos, Tito Puente, Benecio del Toro, Jimmy Smits, Iris Chacón, Charytín, Don Omar, Daddy Yankee, Chita Rivera, José Feliciano, Rosario Ferré and Júlia de Burgos.
