FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A unique fashion show combining elegant dresses with a Dia De Los Muertos theme is coming to Downtown Fresno. You can expect to see models with their faces painted like Catrinas at the Catrinas and Couture Fashion Show and Gala.
The benefit for Arte Americas will feature fashion by designer Eruvey Tapia. Tapia's work has been featured at New York's Fashion Week and he has created designs for Latin stars like Graciela Beltran. He's also known for his one of a kind quinceañera dresses.
Catrinas are grand skeletal figures often seen in Dia de lo Muertos celebrations. Organizers of the event say the fashion show will feature local and professional models.
