2009 Calavera Fashion Show at the Tropico de Nopal Gallery – wrapup

Great costumes!

Calavera Fashion Show 2009

The 2009 Calavera Fashion Show at the Tropico de Nopal Gallery-Art Space may have been one of the most unique ways to spend the Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) holiday. The concept is to have multiple local artists create “walking altars” to display on a catwalk-style runway. The show combines fashion, social comentary, dance, and culture into a two-hour show.
