Former Miss Universe Barbara Palacios and Leonardo D’Almagro announce the debut of their jewelry collection,   Barbara Palacios Inspirations by Leonardo D’Almagro.

Bárbara Palacios, Miss Universe 1986, is an internationally acclaimed public figure with a stellar reputation. Her professional accomplishments and her commitment to the empowerment of women have earned her significant recognition and prestige in the Latino community of the United States and in Latin America.

Mrs. Palacios has developed an extensive career as a recognized spokesperson for a variety of companies in the television industry in the U.S. and abroad. She has hosted successful television shows, including the Latin Grammys for five years and Miss Venezuela for seven years. She has also been a vital part of Miss Universe, the Viña del Mar Festival, and Miss USA.

Mrs. Palacios was named one of the most powerful women in 2014, according to Spanish People magazine. Most recently, in 2016, she was honored by the United States Congress as one of the most influential and respected Latina women for her contribution to the promotion of Hispanic culture in the US.

As Inspirational author, Mrs. Palacios works continuously in her presentations and conferences for personal growth and development. She has taken her conferences to many countries, including Mexico, Spain, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Panama, Guatemala, United States and South Africa.

For her latest project, Barbara Palacios Inspirations, Mrs. Palacios is partnering with a relatively recent arrival on the jewelry design scene, Leonardo D’Almagro.

Mr. D’Almagro stated, “I am extraordinarily honored to be collaborating with Mrs. Palacios on this jewelry collection.” And D’Almagro has hit the floor running, having already received several major accolades.

For example, in 2016 he was the only Hispanic U.S. jewelry designer selected to present a line at Vicenzaoro and Vincenza Dubai. Held in Italy, they are the most important international jewelry trade shows in the world. His collection marked the first time that a Hispanic designer from the U.S. was invited to present a jewelry line at these prestigious events.

And Leonardo did not skip Paris Fashion Week: His line was used to accessorize Binzario Couture.

His brand is becoming increasingly well known; the Miss Mexico Organization has chosen him as an official designer. His jewelry will be used by the official Miss Mexico and Mr. Mexico in all of their pageants at all international events. Miss Mexico, Ana Girault, who represented her country recently at Miss Universe, very often wears Leonardo’s fabulous jewelry.

Leonardo is currently one of 18 semi-finalists–from thousands of submissions–competing to be one of the brands on HSN Project American Dreams. The winner will have his merchandise sold on HSN, the largest shopping network in the U.S.

In addition, Leonardo received recognition by the 2015-2016 Daytime Emmy Awards as a Fashion Editor for his contributions to “Superlatina with Gabriela Natale.”

Many celebrities have accessorized their elegant styles with the Leonardo D’Almagro Jewelry Line. These well-known figures include the aforementioned Gabriela Natale, who wore his jewelry when she received her first Emmy.

Reality TV celebrities LeeAnne Locken and Tiffany Hendra from “The Real Housewives of Dallas” frequently wear Leonardo’s jewelry. Two other fans of Leonardo’s jewelry are American TV host Hillary Kennedy and celebrity fashion stylist and TV host Jeannette Chivvis.

Miss Venezuela International, Amal Nemer, wore his jewelry during the Miss International contest, where she won the title of Miss South America International 2016.

Drawing on their complementary backgrounds, both Mrs. Palacios and Mr. D’Almagro are looking forward to a very successful collaboration on the Barbara Palacios Collection.

Mr. D’Almagro stated, “Words cannot express how honored I am to be selected by Miss Universe Barbara Palacios to be the designer for the Barbara Palacios Inspirations Jewelry Collection. As a Latino entrepreneur and Venezuelan, it’s one of the biggest honors I have had in my life.”
