MEXICO ESTA DE MODA blog asked Spanish designer Maya Hansen, why did she decided to start a collection of Mexican styles. She responded wild and exuberant nature as the main reason; then, the blue sea, wild animals, and the wonderful world of popular handcrafts such as alebrijes (Oaxacan lizard), Our Lady of Guadalupe, candy skulls; lastly, the magic around the Mayans, and their pyramids. She was also asked why she thinks that Mexico is on Fashion... and she responded because of the colorful tropical fabrics, color contrast, and the rescue of tradition, culture and folklore.
