The well-respected designer expressed his happiness to be named the tourism ambassador and recounted many great memories he had in D.F. and how at the beginning of his career, everyone thought he was Italian because of his last name.

“I am proud to be Dominican and be Latino and I consider all of my accomplished triumphs in my life to be a product of all Latinos,” said De La Renta proudly.
