History was made on the island of Puerto Rico on April 1, 2017.

Suzanne Ujaque brought women of all ages, shapes and sizes together for the first SuStyle Expo at the Centro de Convenciones de Puerto Rico.

Almost 3,000 women attended this empowering event starring television celebrities, models and blogger influencers from the Caribbean and the United States.

The Slink Jeans and PLUS Model Magazine Model Search attracted a little over 300 model hopefuls. The cover model will be photographed in Puerto Rico wearing SLINK Jeans for our October 2017 Love Your Body Issue.
