A Group Of Mexican Designers Will Show At The Next New York Fashion Week And I'm So Ready For It

This is the breath of fresh air fashion week needed.

If you've been in the industry long enough, you know that fashion week has definitely changed from what it used to be. And as I was ready to give up running all over the city to attend shows, now I have reason to keep going: Fashion Week Mexico will be part of NYFW next season!

¿Qué? Yes! Fashion Week Mexico is partnering with IMG and giving a handful of Mexican designers the chance to show their work at New York Fashion Week next February.

The group show, sponsored by Visit Mexico, will feature notable designers like Anuar Layon, Lorena Saravia, and Yakampot.

A little about the designers: Anuar Layon has over 10 years of experience in fashion and specializes in streetwear. He's worked for Daft Punk, Wu Tang Clan, Iggy Pop, Queens of the Stone Age, and many others. He's also the creative director and designer for Mexico is the Shit.

Lorena Saravia designs for the contemporary woman. Her label is known for its fluid silhouettes and timeless elegance.

Yakampot's makes clothes using ancestral techniques and they work with indigenous artisans to create their products. They've also dressed some of my favorite Mexican women like Natalia Lafourcade, Cecilia Suarez, and Julieta Venegas.

The show aims to highlight Mexico's rich talent and to demonstrate that Mexican fashion deserves a spot in the American marketplace.

“The goal of the project is to transform the mindset and push for the development of strong brands that can match the creativity of their artistic proposals with viable commercial offerings," Cory Crespo, President of COLOüRS, told As/Is.

If you want to keep up with what the designers are doing in preparation for the show, make sure to follow @MX_NY and @FashionWeekMX on Instagram.

I am here for it and I am ready for Mexican talent to take over fashion week!
