Fashion Week Mexico Turns Historic Ex Convento Halls into Catwalk

MEXICO – The Ex Convento de San Hipolito halls, a historic monument of the Mexican capital, were transformed on Thursday into a fashion catwalk for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Mexico.

The fifth day of the Fashion Week took place inside the 16th-century building, declared a Colonial Monument in 1964, featuring collections of various fashion houses such as Centro, Lands, Bernarda, Mexico Diseña by Elle, Rcano, The Pack and Daniela Villa.

This fashion event was held as part of Mexico Diseña By Elle, a platform for emerging designers, such as Monica Lucia Medina, Miguel Eguia and Emilio Aguado, and their works.

Medina’s designs represents “a passion that differs from the routine” and seeks to convey the image of a real, amusing, confident woman who knows what she wants and where she is going, just like the personality of those women to whom she dedicate her works.

Aguado aims to implement a new form of design to minimize waste, reduce work hours, combat gender roles and stereotypes as well as invite anyone to be part of the brand.

Eguia discovered his passion for design thanks to the haute couture and tailoring techniques and has a preference for the ’90s minimalist trend.

The Fashion Week Mexico City, which began on Oct. 7 on the stairs of the Angel of Independence monument in downtown Mexico City, will last until next Oct. 14. On Friday, the event will move its catwalk to the Chapultepec Forest, a city park in the Mexican capital.
