Miami, Florida, United States
Born in New York and raised in the Dominican Republic from the ages of 7 through 17, Angelina moved to Miami with her mother in 2004, where she now resides. She actually credits her knack for creativity to all those hours she spent as a child watching her mother create beautiful designs for some of the hottest names in fashion in New York City. In the Dominican Republic, Angelina trained as an actress and radio/TV host. As an adult, and back in the US, she graduated with a degree in Fashion Merchandising from the Miami International University of Art & Design and received her certification as a Multi-Media make up artist from the Cosmix Makeup School of Artistry in Fort Lauderdale. And her entrepreneurial heart started beating loud and clear.
In 2006, Angelina founded A Concept Fashion Group (ACFG) and began designing elaborate costumes, branding uniforms and custom-made dresses for various high-profile clients. ACFG also quickly began providing a full range of entertainment solutions such as professional dances, promotional models, choreography and themed productions for various top-notch events in addition to costume/fashion design services. The professional accolades followed and ACFG was voted “Best of 2010” and was a finalist for the “2011 Best Entertainment Program” both by the top industry magazine Biz Bash. Through the years, Angelina’s leadership took her to not only work with names such as Absolut Vodka, Sauza Tequila, Presidente, Sevillana, and Heineken, but she also brought her vision to St. Tropez (France), Miami’s 5 Start Island and South Beach’s Clevelander Hotel. Many celebrities and international business magnates contracted her services to assure their events would be extraordinary experiences.
Nowadays, Angelina Concepcion is on her rightful way to becoming the top destination wedding planner for the Dominican Republic, a new adventure she recently undertook when she created Hispaniola Weddings. Her experience in all aspects of top event production and fashion, together with her visionary eye (she can always see hidden talents and opportunities) and commitment to excellence are her foundation. Her fun and cheerful personality, belief in family values and ever lasting love will turn every wedding into a magical experience. A word of caution: only contact her if you truly want your special day to be an unforgettable affair.
