la quinceañera

For a poster for the SFMOMA artists gallery's upcoming 15th annual warehouse sale.
It's a yearly event - art half off (imagine an art piranha feed, it's pretty exciting)
I'm also doing the T-shirt and card

The Quinceañera or Quince Años (sometimes represented XV Años, meaning "fifteen years") is, in some Spanish-speaking regions of the Americas, a young woman's celebration of her fifteenth birthday, which is commemorated in a unique and different way from her other birthdays.

Besides referring to the actual festivities, the word is also used to refer to the young woman whose 15th birthday is being celebrated (analogous to the word cumpleañera for "birthday girl").
