Folklore and Fashion, a Perfect Match. Episode 1 – Mexico

Mexican Folk, Fashion and Art

Folklore and Fashion, a Perfect Match. Episode 1 – Mexico

I had this idea a few days ago that I should start a series of posts about different areas, folklore and impact on fashion and art. And decided to start unexpectedly with Mexico. Its culture is so vibrant and colorful, with such obvious influences that it seemed easy to approach, being that I am no expert. So please forgive any mishaps, I welcome any contributions that can improve my content.

Starting on upper row, left corner:

  1. Frieda Kahlo portrait in traditional Mexican attire
  2. Re-take on Frieda’s portrait by BellJar Spring 2012 
  3. Street celebration – dancer in Mexico 
  4. Mara Hoffman, NY fashion designer Mexican inspired collection, 2012
  5. Street celebration – dancer in Mexico
  6. Mara Hoffman runway 2012 – detail
  7. Traditional Mexican costumes – Museum exhibition, Mexico City
Mayan, Spanish and Mexican - See any similarities?

Starting on upper row left corner:

  5. Traditional flamenco dress
  6. Street celebration, dancer in Mexico
  7. Mexican dancer
  8. Traditional Mexican costumes – Museum exhibition, Mexico City

Last but not least, a series of portraits that just seemed to belong with one another:
