Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 2, 2008
Isabella Wall, dubbed The Fairy Godmother of Quinceañera by the Latin media, debuted her collection of Quinceañera fashions to an enthusiastic crowd of young girls and parents at Knott's Berry Farm's Fiesta Mexicana this past weekend.
The Isabella Wall Collection features beautiful gowns in a variety of non-traditional colors -- all striking departures from the conventional white -- designed in 2 pieces so they can be worn as the most formal attire and still be useful after the big event for proms and other social occasions.
In addition to showing the collection, Wall offered her thoughts on how important a gown is to this special celebration in a young girl's life. "Quinceañeras gives girls the chance to become a princess for a day. What is a princess without a beautiful gown and sparkling tiara?" asks Wall.
"I think the fashion show was a tremendous success and I am thrilled that Knott's Berry Farm, for the first time, has embraced the celebration of the quinceañera. The reaction of the crowd to our Quinceañera fashions and advice on planning a successful celebration is testament to just how important an event this is in Hispanic families," said Wall. "Turning 15 only comes once in a lifetime and it provides the perfect opportunity for families to give support to their daughters and love them for who they are."
Hosted by KEARTH, the event featured a contest offering a Quinceañera Prize Pack that includes a dress, shoes and tiara, a makeover for the Quinceañera girl, a photo shoot for the girl and her family, and a one-hour consultation by Isabella. Details on the contest are available at http://www.kearth101.com.
