My item is a formal dress commonly worn in Ecuador. Wearing this dress on special occasions--such as birthdays, dinners, or any family gathering--shows respect to your elders
This article of clothing also lets your peers know that you have a great power and it signifies financial wealth.
I love this dress because of all the designs that are incorporated into it. I wore this dress in daycare for Heritage Day. I have fond memories of this dress. It tells a story, a story of my culture and heritage.
