It’s no secret that we are big fans of Carla Fernández’s creations. The designer makes beautiful avant-garde clothing deeply intertwined with Mexico’s vast indigenous artistic legacy. Fernández helps preserve this rich creative history by incorporating the craft of talented artisans (like foot wool felting or mud dyeing) into her designs. The collaboration between ancient indigenous techniques and Fernández’s modern designs result in stunning, wearable pieces of art.
This fusion between old and new helps modernize the artistry while bringing awareness to the craftsmanship to ensure it will be enjoyed for years to come. We love Fernández’s work because it is rooted in a cause we deeply care about: the celebration of culture (and we also think the finished results are beautiful). With several stores in Mexico (from Mexico City to San Miguel de Allende) and designs available via her website, you can now buy Fernández’s work regardless of where you are located. Her newest collection will be available late August 2017. So, next time you are looking for clothes that are unique and rooted in tradition, start with Carla Fernández.
