Bendita showroom: featuring Mexican talent
By Enrique López Contla
Bendita Showroom is a new concept to promote Mexican talent. Many things give character and make San Miguel de Allende a unique place, so unique that it has the power of drawing creative and talented people from all over. The artistic community is very strong; people who are related to culture and arts such as painting, literature, sculpture or fashion.

Bendita (blessed) is a new showroom in town which will open its doors on August 17. It is a new concept by Monterrey designer Myrna Camacho, which seeks to showcase and promot the work of young Mexican creators who express their talent in several different media, but having high quality as an essential common denominator. As opposed to the plastic artists who often have the support of galleries and art dealers, the designers (fashion, accessories, art-object) sometimes struggle to show their work and make their names known. The idea of this showroom comes from this: to provide the designers a showcase for their work. Bendita creates an attractive and functional exhibition and sales room which contributes to the spreading and commercialization of the designs of Mexican creators.
San Miguel is the birthplace of Mexico’s independence, and now we’re pursuing a different kind of independence, a type of independence that could be the base for the development of Mexican creativity, a creativity that amazes as much or even more than the top European or North American designer brands.
In Mexico there are many success stories, but at Bendita showroom we are confident that our country has many more talents ready to shine and be exposed, emerging from our beloved San Miguel
Bendita showroom is located at Hernández Macías 56A, between Mesones and Insurgentes, a half block from Teatro Angela Peralta, and will offer an opening reception on Saturday, August 17, at 7pm. It is an excellent opportunity to support designers in fashion, accessories, jewelry and decor.
