Las Tunas.- The designer Jordi Leal came to Las Tunas with his guayabera project, which highlights the renewal of the traditional garment and the involvement of prominent exponents of the visual arts, always respecting the elements that identify it.
A journey takes him through a large part of the island with a sample of pieces from his collection, in the body of models from the territories, and with which they will inaugurate the exhibition Son de Cuba, with photographs of those who used them, including Omara Portuondo, Flora Fong, Javier Soto Mayor and José Rubiera.
During his stay here, he took the opportunity to build up ties with the Provincial Directorate of Culture from the chance of dressing the Flores de Birama for the next edition of the Cucalambeana Day, as well as participating with a more complete sample that includes the snapshots of Roberto Chile and other well-known photographers linked to his project.
Likewise, he considers the possibility of adding a well-known plastic artist and other personalities from the province.
Among his most recent goals is the inauguration once he arrives in Havana of a new type of House-Museum, where pieces of different models will also be sold, from conventional to more modern.
Jordi Leal said that it is his determination to extend the experience to the provinces with sub-venues for the sale of their designs and prices that allow citizens access to the traditional garment.
