Fabulous Friday – Wedding dresses

 

Mexican high fashion is hardly known in the US. Yet, along with the much praised evolution of the “new” Mexican cuisine and its very talented exponents, the country’s fashion scene is now coming into its own. I’ve been exposed to it through my client, Velas Resorts, that  has featured runway shows and popup boutiques of two of the leading fashion designers, Alejandro Carlin and Benito Santos.
