I wore this the day I attended the first annual Rebozo Festival at the Guild Theatre. My mother thought I'd be interested in seeing the fashion show featured as part of the celebration, and so invited me. Her primos, Alfredo y Abel had told her about it, as an amigo of theirs was the designer. The designer, Rory Castillo, has worked as a costume designer in Hollywood for film, television and theatre. He was invited to design a collection based on and inspired by the Rebozo.
The Rebozo is a traditional Mexican shawl and is a proud symbol of Mexicanos. The Sacramento cultural group, Reina Fiestas Patrias chose to this humble article of clothing as a point of celebration of the richness of Mexican heritage.
The event did not disappoint.
There were various performances of song & dance, including a memorable one by the Ballet Forklorico. And the fashion show was muy bueno! I regret I was unable to photograph during the show.

Well instead of a rebozo, I have a blazer. A re-blazo, if you will. Black & white cotton plaid with pushed up arms. No songs will be written about it, no poems for it, and not one festival created. The new Coach wedges, however, may be another story.
