As a mom of two boys, I will never get a chance to present mi niñas in a Quinceañera dress. The Quinceañera, a rite of passage for young Latinas turning 15 years old, is a huge (I’m talking wedding huge) fiesta with every detail carefully planned out, including the most important detail of the event: the dress. This dress the Quinceañera will wear during her mass, for the fabulous pictures, and the grand reception. For me, it seems that an event like that deserves only the most beautiful dress. This is why I’m so in love with the new 2015 Disney Royal Ball spring collection. The line includes new Quinceañera gowns inspired by beloved Disney characters including Anna and Elsa from Frozen.
The Disney Royal Ball collection debuted in 2013 as the first ever line of Quinceañera gowns inspired by the inner qualities, personalities and stories of the Disney Princess characters. Designed in collaboration with Disney Consumer Products, the gowns combine elements of fantasy and magic to deliver a fairy tale experience to young Latinas celebrating their Quinceañera.
The spring 2015 line features 13 new gowns including a special edition design for “la Corona de la Princesa.”
“With new dresses inspired by Anna and Elsa from Disney’s Frozen , the collection offers reminders of even more inspiring and strong characters for Latina teens to channel on their special day.”
