This bazaar follows the format of an itinerant art and design forum that features original Mexican designs. On November 1 and 2 the Bazaar comes back (also as a part of La Calaca Festival program this time) in its sixth edition and also celebrates its first anniversary. Woo hoo!
We would like to share with all the community the joy of this dream becoming one year old, and more consolidated and truer to its philosophy each time.
Buying in a mall turns out to be boring and humdrum. The most fun way to shop for fashion is to do it at a bazaar directly from the designer. Besides, in that way, you’re also supporting young independent producers and taking home a unique product with a lot of style.
Since 2013 this project has been a platform for the direct sale of Mexican art and design, where young entrepreneurs from San Miguel and other states of Mexico show their newest products and trends.
The Bazaar is a fun space where art, fashion, and design converge. Best part? Everything is made in México.
Over 60 brands will show fashion, embroideries, handbags, shoes, accessories, jewelry, toys, interior design, objects d’art, furniture, lighting, engraving, illustration, ceramics, candles, glasses, notebooks, rugs, beauty products, plus Mexican antojitos and mescal and fruit-ice frappés and much more.
On Sunday, November 2, at 5pm we’ll have the opening of our Ofrenda (altar) of Day of the Dead, and we are inviting everyone to come and toast our loved ones who have passed away, along with celebrating the birthday of the bazaar with a shot of mescal from Oaxaca and live music.
Support the careers of these independent designers to expand their business and to keep creating, by knowing and purchasing their work. Let’s help this movement grow!
