Quinceanera Dresses History

Transition from Childhood to Womanhood: Quinceanera

Quinceanera dresses, are probably the most important part of the celebration…

 

Quinceanera or to put it simply ‘quince’, is not just any normal birthday celebration. This celebration marks one of the most important time periods of a girl’s life. Feminine for “fifteen-year-old”, Quinceanera is celebrated at the fifteenth birthday of the girl specially to highlight her transition from being a girl to become a woman.

 

Although this celebration has cultural roots in Latin America but nonetheless, it is celebrated throughout all the American states and lands.

 

Quinceanera trends have changed over the course of years. The traditional celebrations were observed with certain rules but today, girls organize the event themselves according to whatever they like. However, some of the traditional aspects of this celebration are preserved like exchanging slippers ceremonially for high heels reflecting the transition from a girl to a lady.

 

Similarly, Quinceanera traditional dresses used to be formal and usually be of just white or pink color but today you can find a wide variety of dresses and even proper designer collections specified just for the celebration of Quinceanera.

Quinceanera Dresses

A Quinceanera dress is supposed to highlight the fact that the girl is about to make a beautiful transition into a more mature and graceful woman. The dress should show how independent you are as well to showcase that you are ready to take on the freedom and responsibility of becoming a woman.

 

When a girl goes through her fifteenth birthday she is considered to be a princess, who is the center of attraction at her party and the reason why everybody is there. Therefore the dress should be unique and one of its kind so that the girl stands out from the crowd on her big day.
