Traditional Dress of Yucatan

15th birthday
Just Stunning

This stunning young lady decided to have her 15th  birthday video clip taken, dressed in the traditional huipil .The huipil is usually worn by mestizas a mix of Maya and Spanish and only on special festival  occasions or in the dance of Jarana.

The huipil carries three layers and as you can see elaborately decorated with cross stitch. The young ladies mother took one and half years to complete the embroidery on this dress and it was made special for this occasion

Her father excitedly told me she had 5 outfits that she will be using on the night .So it will be a grand affair no doubt.

I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoy taking them and being a privileged on looker

  2. And this is so rare nowadays, that someone young would want to wear an hipil! Good for her and lucky you to be part of the community!

    Saludos, Val!

    Beautiful! And good for her, choosing the traditional. I do love the girls in their Cinderella ballgowns, but the beauty of this traditional dress, and the 1 /2 years of love and devotion her mother put into it! Amazing

    Congratulations to that family! And that lucky young woman!
