Mac Duggal at the Alma Awards



We spotted a variety of Mac Duggal designs at this year's Alma

Awards. Attendees walked the red carpet in fabulous style available

at NewYorkDress. Melissa Barrera, Telemundo star and host of mun2,

worked the camera in a gorgeous green gown with an elegant ruffle design.

She interviewed the stars in style. One of our most popular dresses was

spotted on Yarel Ramos, host of Reveton con Yarel. She looked stunning in

this lacy classic. She later changed into a second Mac Duggal style that

had her glowing on screen. Last, but not least was Miss Queen of the

Universe, Ivette Saucedo, in a lacy, curve-hugging gown. She looked like

a true pageant queen in that dress. Follow by example with these

gorgeous holiday choices.

Instagram: Mexican Culture Week



We had a great time celebrating Mexican culture at NewYorkDress! We

captured our adventures on Instagram as we broke a pinata, created sugar

skull masks and ate a delicious meal. We made sure to take lots of photos

in front of our fun mariachi cutout. As we explored this week's customer

culture, we learned about history, fashion and food. Doesn't it look like

fun? We can't wait for our next cultural week!

Mexican Fashion



When it comes to Mexican fashion, there are three main groups: modern,

traditional and celebration. Looking at smaller towns, you can see distinct

modern style. Much of the style has a native feel shown by the colors and

materials chosen. Many have a preference for earth-tones, but it's not

uncommon to find bright colors mixed in. Traditional Mexican clothing

combines native and European elements. Materials used include cotton

and agave, along with Spanish wool and silk, which were later introduced.

Different styles can vary from gender, social status and ethnic group.

Celebration garments are bright and detailed. They are worn on special

occasions like Day of the Dead and the Carnival. During Carnival, the

Mexican clothing of choice is the Charro suit, popularized by the Mariachi.

Sleeping Beauty



With Maleficent now on iTunes, we found ourselves re-watching an old

classic: Sleeping Beauty. Each side has a story and both villain and hero

are fabulously dressed. Sleeping Aurora is a perfect princess in pink. The

shades of blush remain a staple of this fantastic story. Browsing our

selection of Alyce dresses, we found some lovely choices worthy of a real-

life fairy tale. If you're in need of a homecoming gown or beautiful

birthday attire, these dresses are sure to make you feel just like a princess.

The Homecoming Queen


(and Football Star)



This homecoming queen is one special girl. Why's that? She happens to be

the star of her school's football team. Talk about cool! Since joining the

35-yard line, Mary Kate Smith has made headlines. This amazing athlete

and homecoming queen wore a lovely La Femme gown for her feature in

ELLE Magazine. When asked about dangers on the field, she replied, "I’m

not going to worry about, 'Hey, I’m a girl.' I’m going to worry about, 'I’m

an athlete, and this is my job.'" Good for her! We're proud to see such a

strong teen in a NewYorkDress designer.

Mexican Art: Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera

Mexican Art:


Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera



Frida Kahlo was a 19th Century Mexican painter who primarily painted self-

portraits. Her portraits symbolized her pain and sexuality; and featured

vibrant colors influenced by the indigenous culture of Mexico. She married a

fellow painter, Diego Rivera, who was known for his intricate murals. Rivera

was a large influence in the Mexican mural movement and painted them all over

the world. Although the Louvre purchased one of Frida's works in 1939, a first

for a Mexican artist, she remained relatively unknown until about 30 years after

her death when the artistic style gained popularity. Both artists are now

internationally known and revered.

Customer culture is back at NewYorkDress! This week, we celebrate Mexico

and everything the country has to offer, from music and food to history and

art. Follow our Instagram for fun snapshots of office activities. While doing

initial research, we found that many of our favorite celebs come from Mexican

roots. These stars take pride in their ancestry whether they were born in

Mexico or their lineage dates back. Many of these ladies have broken media

stereotypes on what it means to be Latina. Today, we highlight Selena "Queen

of Tejano," a highly revered legend who passed away in 1995. She sold over

90 million albums worldwide, making her one of the best-selling artists of

all time. Can you spot your favorite actress on the rest of our list?
