Regional Mexican Dress Fashion Show-Part 1
México is blessed with rich and diverse cultures throughout its 32 states that were forged by the presence of indigenous and Spanish cultures. These influences gave rise to regional dresses with the majority combining huipiles and skirts, many with embroidery and ribbons in vivid colors. These dresses are worn by dance troupes or Ballet Folkloricos in both Mexico and the United States to illustrate dances from different regions. In addition, these regional dresses continue to be favorite outfits for women on both sides of the border to wear to Mexican fiestas and events as well as everyday attire. The Regional Mexican Dress Fashion Show, slated for Sept 9 at the Austin Public Library from 10 to 3 p.m., aims to educate the public on the origen of each dress and its material. Enjoy a sneak preview in our newsletter of this fashion show. The event will include a performance by Roy Lozano Ballet Folklorico and will feature an Artisan Mercado where Mexican regional dress for men and women can be purchased. Tickets are on sale for $15 at ?????? will include a commemorative booklet with the 32 regional dresses.
