Mexican Style has been influenced by fashion from several cultures.
I would like to include our Mexican Indigenous clothing as a fashion ethnic unique style as it has changed throught life, and is a fashion statement, just as high couture fashion .
The Diference is Some pieces had been made for comercial fast trade, and had losed some of their intricacy, but others have been made even more elaborated. Hand embroidery, is unique to Mexico, to the people working with the Mexican embroidery.
Altough every country has their own unique embroidery techiques.
The ethnic techniques we use here at Aida Coronado, as I am in Mexico, are unique from region to region.
Someone from Veracruz would have a different embroidered blouse than someone in Juquila. And even in Oaxaca there are blouses that differ from town to town, from ethnicity to ethnicity, from taste and so on.
Here in Mexico as in any other countries, the relationship with our clothing is very special, for us clothing has a meaning and carries our energies through the day and through life.
When you feel a garment does not suit you just do not wear it on that day.
Sometimes I had lost important pieces of clothing, when just making some tests (I try several methods of washing and drying, altough I recommed neutral soap and handwash, Iron if necessary).
And I found this book and I do not want it to get lost, in one of my travels, this is a Parisian Magazine, very elegant, it has advertisment from LV, Christian Lacroix, Zimmerman and more designers and inspiring images, I know there is already a bunch of advertisment in Magazines nowadays, so how come I am doing this!?
Because this is Magazine from 1909, hope you enjoy!
