Selvedge p.55

Selvedge magazine, nº 87, p. 55

«Haute couture is found in the mountains in Mexico, in the heights of Chiapas, in the Mixteca coast, in the canyons of the Tarahumara where people have 5000 years of experience in their craft… Clothing made by hand is more than just fashion; it’s an expression of our essential humanity.»

«Carla Fernández works at the forefront of ethical fashion, documenting and preserving the rich textile heritage of Mexico’s indigenous communities, while simultaneously making it avantgarde. She travels extensively throughtout Mexico and works in tandem with artisans -hand spinners, weavers, embroiderers and garment-makers- to document their age-old techniques and processes, adapting and transforming them to make striking clothing.»
