Bendita Showroom First Anniversary
By Jade Arroyo
One of the coolest stores in town turns one year old: Bendita.
Celebration of first anniversary
Sat, Sep 13, 6-9pm
Hernández Macías 56A
(between Mesones and Insurgentes)
Bendita is a dream come true because of the creativity, thankfulness and love for Mexico of designer Myrna Camach, who had the quest of creating a space to showcase new Mexican design. By selling the work of young designers, she also helps them to develop their careers. The showroom offers a range of products and prices, from high-end fashion designers to fun pret-a-porter pieces, functional and artsy home wear, high-temperature ceramic, hand-knitted sandals and accessories, signature jewelry, wire sculpture, menswear, handbags and small leather goods, dolls, jewelry purses, and other products.
The city had the luck to see Bendita born in August 2013, and now it has the ‘blessing’ of celebrating its first year of labor.
Always keeping the quality and creativity as a common denominator, this place breathes beauty: the serenity of dozen of doves hanging from the ceiling, the pristine whiteness and the attractive décor unite to make the perfect setting for design.
Customers appreciate the original pieces of fashion, shoes, accessories and décor, and get to know the designer behind the piece at the same time.
This first year of Bendita will be celebrated big, with a party filled with art, creativity, Mexican culture, contemporaneity and a lot of fun; there’s a live performance by a local marching band Los Guardias de Honor (The Honor Guards), a raffle of gifts, live music by a guest DJ and screening of visual art by Expendeduría y Fundación Colección; everything seasoned by a good shot of flavored mescal (or two) by Mezcalite de Oaxaca. Look for the trendy mojigangas by young artist Marco Bautista at the entrance, marking the blessed place.
Mark the date: Saturday, September 13, from 6-9pm. As well as celebrating the anniversary there will be a launch of new brands carried at the showroom: Lydia Lavín, Cachito Mío, 1234’s and Lorenzo Lorenzo. Don’t miss the chance to see their work!
We invite you to fill your senses with creativity and support products that are “Made in Mexico.” Let’s celebrate all together the bendito Mexican talent.
