Following the remarkable debut of the Catrina Ball in 2015, the Mexic-Arte Museum and the 2016 Catrina Ball co-chairs and committee are thrilled to keep the spirits alive with the 2nd Annual Catrina Ball at the Four Seasons Hotel!
Inspired by José Guadalupe Posada’s famous 1913 zinc etching La Calavera Catrina (“The Elegant Skull”), guests are invited to show off their dramatic Calavera/Día de los Muertos makeup, lush rose crowns, and other inspired couture.
This spirited and artistically-inspired evening is destined to become an annual legacy event of culture and fashion. All proceeds support the Mexic-Arte Museum’s Education and Outreach Programs and renowned exhibitions.
For this event celebrating Latin culture, we were inspired by the bold color: red. It signifies the passion of Latin art and is the perfect complement to the dia de los muertos themed décor.
You’ll be a standout in this gorgeous jumpsuit, which is on trend being both strapless and with the large ruffle at the bustline. This is the ultimate outfit that is both classy and flashy for the lady who wants to be noticed. We have accessorized with jewelry from Mizana Collection, which we now carry in store. This jewelry has beautiful, black diamonds in a modern setting to add a touch of subtle sexiness.

You can never go wrong with a little black dress. This dress is anything but basic. The silk makes it extra dressy, and the asymmetrical cut gives it that interesting edge, which is also flattering. The jewelry here is also Mizana Collection, and made of emerald and diamonds.
If you wear black, it’s great to have a pop of color somewhere, and where better to wear color than in your jewelry? The python clutch is genuine from one of our local designers. You’ll take that clutch everywhere! We do.
