Description

Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts, 40th Anniversary celebration will kick off with a retrospective show of costumes, designed by Mario Chacon, award-winning, Salvadoran designer. Spanning a creative career of over 50 years, the costumes will be presented in a runway show on Saturday, March 11 at 7 pm in the Theater.

Also, Join us for the reception afterwards with music by the trio “El Guajiro”.

Models, representing the diversity of the community, will showcase a lavish line-up of 75 one of a kind costumes, including Period (Historical), Ethic and Carnaval styles.

Mario is highly regarded in the Mission District for the many, fantasy costumes that he has designed and produced for numerous Carnaval San Francisco contingents over the years. Mario Chacon studied architecture in El Salvador, but a costume design program at City College of Los Angeles ignited his passion for fashion and design. Mario’s designs have been featured at the deYoung Museum and are on permanent display in San Salvador. His most recent exhibition is in Santa Tecla, El Salvador, a historic town outside the capital.

Luis Echegoyen, pioneer of Bay Area Latin television, will host the show. Immediately following the show there will be a meet and greet in the Gallery on the second floor providing an opportunity to talk to the designer and mingle with the costumed models.

Notice: We will not have tickets available at the Box Office the day of the event. Please RSVP through Eventbrite, link below.
