The Latin songwriter whose career spans two decades has expanded his entrepreneurial talents to include fashionable footwear, which he will be introducing at two separate shoe-signings in Los Angeles & Orange County. The events will take place on August 15, 2009 at WSS' South Gate store located at 8830 Garfield Avenue from 11am to 1pm and at WSS' Anaheim store located at 2114 E. Lincoln Ave. from 2pm to 4pm.
The special pre-launch shoe signings will include a runway show, music and the opportunity to purchase the new designs and have them autographed by Aguilar himself. Similar events will follow in various cities across the United States.
In a milestone accomplishment Pepe Aguilar is the first Latin music recording artist to accomplish this feat, extending music to developing an exclusive shoe line.
Imbued in the vivid heritage of the Aguilar family, the Pepe Aguilar Signature Collection combines Pepe's own love of music, art and fashion with the rich styling of his cultural legacy. Much like the synthesis of music and lyrics, the label is a fusion of the rustic charm and vibrant colors of Latin culture, together with the appeal of a modern-era 21st century "Charro": Strong, sexy and bold.
"I'm a true believer of tradition, but I'm also fascinated with technology and the way Latin culture has evolved. Our brands are all about that. We are combining the very best of today with the best of yesterday, and are hoping to create the standards of tomorrow", says the singer.
The rollout will initially focus on men's shoes and boots ranging from casual to work will be available exclusively for purchase at the event. The highly anticipated footwear line will be launched nationally online and distributed initially in the 51 WSS- Warehouse Shoe Sale retail store locations in Southern California. The complete Pepe Aguilar Signature Collection will expand to include women's shoes as well as clothing and accessories.
In addition, the singer is also working on the release of his highly anticipated album slated for November 2009, and on developing an ecological agriculture project in his native Zacatecas (Mexico).
