About the design of this singular dress, we have considered as main motives outfits that women of Aguascalientes have used since the beginning of the 20th century.

By this way, we have as outfit a blouse having a high collar, baggy sleeves and adjusted about the wrists, invariably the waist is adjusted. About this costume, we note the elegant and delicate work of openwork or dehilado, the alforzas (pleat done in some garments as adornment or to shorten them) and embroidery done by hand.



In add, harmoniously configured and embroidered machine-made, we show the balustrade of the typical and very old garden of San Marcos, indisputable scenario of our maxima festivity. In the main arch of the balustrade we appreciate the cocks in competition, symbol of the popular hymn of the Aguascalientes inhabitants.
