Mexicali Rose

Mexicali Rose, a sweet and sassy Smooth Standard ballroom gown that makes a lasting statement. To begin, the dress is made from a red stretch knit fabric. It has off the shoulder long sleeves, with elastic straps on the shoulders for support. The front of the dress has a sweetheart neckline, in contrast, the back has a v-neck. Furthermore, the skirt of the dress has several godets made of cascading satiny scarves, and finishing with a horsehair hem. The dress has an a-line shape, with a full and voluminous skirt. Lastly, the dress has built-in bra cups, a bodysuit, and an invisible zipper down the center back.

Every detail on this Smooth Standard ballroom gown is breathtaking. Firstly, several textured fabrics create elegant motifs on the dress. Lace ribbon adorn the bodice, waist, and sleeves forming flowers. Pieces of black ribbon drape from the lacy florals. Secondly, Swarovski crystals sparkle all over the dress. They shine on the lace, ribbons, and all over the dress. They outline, fill in, and create flowers throughout the dress. Additionally, they form intricate swirling vines and glitter in all the empty spaces. Some of the colors of Swarovski crystals include AB, Light Siam, and Tangerine to name a few. Thirdly, the dress has floats as accessories. They are various shapes and lengths in both red and black. You can mix and match which ones you want to use to create your perfect look!

This dress is reminiscent of the “traje de flamenca” or the “flamenco outfit” that is traditionally worn in Andalusia, Spain. The costume is known for being colorful, especially in bold red. The skirt and sleeves typically have flounces, and are often patterned with polka dots or florals. Women wear their hair slicked back, in a bun, with flowers and decorative combs.
