I couldn't let Cinco de Mayo pass without posting something from Mexico! Lucky for me, right now all eyes are on Mexican fashion designer, Carla Fernandez and her beautiful woolen creations. Winner of the 2008 International Young Fashion Entrepreneur Award, Carla uses old-age Indian sewing techniques for her modern label, Taller Flora.
I love her use of rectangular fabric pieces, which honors the indigenous technique of tearing wool along the weave. Not only is Carla creating something modern and sexy, she is preserving the local touch. And that's beautiful!
