If you had asked me a few years ago what a Quinceanera was, I wouldn’t have had the faintest idea. But now I know a bit more, thanks to my Cinderella dress.
A Quinceanera is like a Sweet 16 celebration for the Hispanic culture, it’s a girl’s party when she turns 15 (or in some cases 14). This celebration is a huge deal… I mean huge! It’s sometimes bigger than the girl’s future wedding! To top it all off, the girl wear a fancy dress!
A girl named Amaya chose my dress for her special day!
Even more special than making this dress for her, I got to meet her in person and attend her celebration!
Amaya’s Quinceanera was all Cinderella theme, from the cake all the way to a pumpkin carriage ice sculpture!
And I did have to do a few fixes during the evening (this is thanks to many dance practices)…
Oh, and forgot to mention; I also made a matching doll dress!A couple more photos by www.rickdavilaphotography.com
