To celebrate 1000 visits in less than a month at my beloved new blog(that saved me from boredom during my coxis fracture and gave me the inspiration for my Masters thesis project), I want to dedicate this entry to Mexican people that inspire me to follow my fashion dreams.
According to the dictionary, the definition of proud is “feeling self-respect or pleasure in something by which you measure your self-worth; or being a reason for pride”.
In fashion terms I feel respect for many designers, stylists and editors, but I feel particularly PROUD of two Mexican designers, that besides being talented and having a point of view, they really are ambassadors of Mexican fashion worldwide.
Julia y Renata are sisters, they were born in Guadalajara, starting their brand in 1993, giving contemporary women an alternative of quality yet alternative and creative clothes. They are genius in mixing fabrics and playing with cuts and proportions.
They have conquered difficult markets such as New York (Patricia Field/ The Sex and the City stylist-designer brought part of their first collection) Los Angeles and Madrid, also making appearances in the most prestigious fashion magazines, such as Vogue, Elle and Marie Clare. I had the chance to interview them a while ago for a friend’s design magazine, (http://www.design42day.com/2009/03/julia-y-renata-interview/) gone to their fashion shows, and trust me, I’ve been around the world checking the fashion scene and this Mexican sisters are really a pair to follow.
Check the pictures and youtube their shows and let me know what you think!
