Three Years of Empowering Mexican Talent
By Jade Arroyo
Being a designer does not always mean glamor or labels with high prices. There are times when you have to take risks to innovate and to join forces in order to attract the public, especially when starting from scratch. The bazaars combine innovative design, aesthetics, and economics to create new platforms from which independent designers try to make their way into the market. Here we seek no direct competition, but we encourage mutual support so all can grow together.

For its third year in a row, the Bazaar of Alternative Design has worked to provide a forum for emerging designers by showcasing them in our city. More than 50 brands that embody the best of emerging design in Mexico come to show a variety of products in fashion, footwear, furniture, lighting, fabric, jewelry, art objects, photography, illustration, painting, textile art, binding, and others.
Do not miss the opportunity to see the new projects in this hotbed of Mexican talent this Saturday, October 29, and Sunday, October 30, at Centro Cultural Allende.
Viva Mexico: the advantage of buying national products
According to the National Institute of Entrepreneurship (INADEM), small and medium enterprises (MSME) in Mexico represent 99.8 percent of all enterprises in the country, which generate about 72 percent of employment. When you buy goods “Made in Mexico,” you help to generate an economic alternative. Choosing alternative production and expenditure means that the money doesn’t go to foreign traders.
We must be aware that by devaluing Mexican-made items, we are devaluing our history and origin, which makes it difficult to achieve greater development in Mexican identity and national growth. Buying national products provides work for thousands of people, allows greater economic growth and better entrepreneurial culture, and also gives access to the development and consolidation of Mexican identity.
Bazaar of Alternative Design
Our mission is to promote and extol products “Made in Mexico” and the work of emerging Mexican designers; to promote fair trade, sustainability, and social responsibility; and to provide a forum for Mexican independent artists.
We invite artists and audiences to join the movement of consumption of national design and any creative project with a proposal for innovative design to create a forum for expression of contemporary artists, and to contribute to the creation of new, socially aware consumers.
