Fifteen Latinx fashion brands to discover during Hispanic Heritage Month – Massachusetts Daily Collegian

Five Latin American countries have independence days that fall on September 15; Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. As a result, September 15 through October 15 marks National Hispanic Heritage Month.

In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month, I organized a collection of various brands owned by Latinx for each price range.
