Mexican Fashion Show

Several Hundred Attend Mexican-Themed Fashion Show At San Diego's Mingei Museum

SAN DIEGO, CA---Several hundred people attended a Friday evening fashion show by Mexican design house Pineda Covalin at the Mingei International Museum in Balboa Park which also featured a variety of food from Rosarito restaurants and Baja wines.

The Baja State Secretary of Tourism, Rosarito Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the Rosarito chamber of restaurants were among sponsors of the three-hour event. Other sponsors included Union Bank and AeroMexico.

As well as viewing the fashion show by the internationally acclaimed designers Cristina Pineda and Ricardo Covelin, guests also sampled seafood and traditional Mexican dishes from numerous Rosarito restaurants and enjoyed wines from Baja's Guadalupe Valley.

The colorful and elegant fashions were inspired by traditional Mexican culture. Mexican music accompanied the event, which was the second that Baja tourism groups have helped sponsor at the elegant Balboa Park museum in the past year.

"It's a great way to introduce or remind people in the San Diego area of all the great attractions that our region of Baja has to offer," said Jesus Santos, manager of the Rosarito Convention and Visitors Bureau.
