Reggaeton artist, J Balvin, was recently named ambassador of the fourth edition of New York Men’s Fashion Week. The event will kick of in New York City from January 31 to February 2. The 31-year-old Colombian star is the first Latin American artist to receive this title from The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) as an ambassador.

In a recent press release distributed to different media outlets J Balvin said, “I’m honored and thankful to be partnering with the prestigious CFDA as one of the men’s wear ambassadors for fashion week. My interest in fashion is only matched by my love for music and I’m blessed to be given an opportunity to learn about some of my favorite designers from a firsthand look at their latest collections.”

In recent years, J Balvin has taken over the Latin music industry by obtaining several number one spots in the Billboard Charts. Now he wants to take his career to another level by collaborating with important fashion designers. This is not the first time Balvin attends a fashion event, last year he was spotted attending several events in Europe.

Congratulations to J Balvin for achieving this amazing recognition and we wish him future success this year.
