An encounter of Mexican Fashion & artisan techniques

A la Mexicana is an exhibition to create consciousness about the story behind the clothes we wear, and also poses the question to designers for future co-creation with artisans. UAL London College of Fashion MA Fashion Entrepreneurship and Innovation students are collaborating with the Mexican blog Hilando Historias, NGO Impacto and the Mexican Embassy to host an event celebrating Mexican artisans, their traditional techniques, and the designers who include collaborations with artisans into their designs and business models.

All of these brands collaborate ethically with artisans from several southern regions such as: Chamula - Chiapas, Huixtán - Chiapas, Magdalena Aldama - Chiapas, Santiago el Pinar - Chiapas, Zinacantán - Chiapas, San Juan Colorado - Oaxaca and Santa María Tlahuitoltepec - Oaxaca.
