"Dia De los Muertos" represents Old Fashion Culture.
The Hispanic people celebrate it on the 1st day of November.
But the customs have different origins, and their attitudes toward death are different: In the typical Halloween festivities, death is something to be feared. But in "El Día De Los Muertos", death — or at least the memories of those who have died — is something to be celebrated.
|Día de Los Muertos Fashion Week Alexandre Herchcovitch 2010 |
Alexandre Herchcovitch was inspired by the death a tribute to Día de los Muertos for his fashion show at Sao Paulo Fashion Week. The collection features patterned plaid suits, kilts, deconstruction of tailoring. I watched the fashion show on tv, impossible not to feel fear, makeup of skull, dark catwalk and the soundtrack (the cure). Tailoring is one of the greatest qualities of Alexandre.
