When you and your family are planning a Quinceañera, choose a dress that symbolizes all that you dreamed off!

 Phoenix Bridal & Formal Wear has been designing and creating gowns for special occasions since 1986 for the ladies of Washington DC Metropolitan area. ¨Because a Quinceañera gown makes a statement and reflects a young woman´s personality, we endeavor to offer a wide variety of styles so that there is a gown perfect for every lady and every budget,¨ Joan Sealy, owner of Phoenix Bridal & Formal, said. Remember that a Quiceneara is a symbolic moment from your childhood to adulthood and it plays and important role in Latin American families.

Find the PERFECT Gown:

Choosing the right fabric for all tastes and figures

Choosing a dress can be difficult…. so many to chose from. Keep in mind your figure and then your taste. White dresses with color decorations for Quiceañeras are very popular these days, but if you’re looking for tradition, a pastel color dress is the way to go. Remember that your 15th birthday will be celebrated differently from other birthdays. At your Quince, you will be the focal-point of the celebration. When picking out a dress don´t worry about it being to big because it can be altered and customized just for you. Sealy wanted to let you know that in addition to their custom designing and expert alterations services they provide a select line of designer and one of a kind couture formal dresses.
Whether your Quince is taking place outside or inside just try to chose a gauzy pastel dress that shows your innocence and elegance. Keep in mind the necklines, make sure it is not too revealing. Popular dresses are those with empire waist and corsets. Make sure to try several dresses because some corsets are too tight and can give the appearance that you are about to burst. The following points will guide you to pick the right fabric that will benefit your figure.




  • Satin of Silk- whether you are looking for volume or a tight-body fitted dress. Satin of silk is the choice. This fabric has never gone out of style and is very popular for showing elegance and sophistication. This fabric will make you feel like a real princess.
  • Organza Silk- This is a sheer, crisp fabric that is strong and durable. It gives your body a flat smooth texture and is usually recommended for slim figures.
  • Tulle fabric- this fabric beautifies and it´s usually used to make gauzy dresses. This fabric relates to dresses worn by fairy tale dresses, and just gives you a young-happy appearance.
  • Lace- even though lacing plays an important role among dresses. It is not necessary, but it will give the dress a more expensive look and fashionable style.
  • Silk Taffeta- this is a crisp woven material made from silk or a synthetic fiber and will give your body accentuated emphasis. It makes dresses with drapes stand out.
  • Chiffon Silk- this type of fabric is very light weight. It tends to give a see-through effect. It would give your dress a stunning. faint-shiny look.
