Made in Mexico: Rebozos. A colorful exposition at the Fashion and Textile Museum of London
The Fashion and Textile Museum in London, is hosting the first ever exhibition called Made in Mexico: The Rebozo in Art, Culture and Fashion, featuring the revival and display of the classic Mexican shawl, made famous by icons like Frida Kahlo, during the 20th Century. How about that? From Mexico to the world… And here are all the details!
The rebozo is a traditional garment, fundamental for the typical Mexican women’s attire… With time, it’s gained great popularity and is now more than a mere piece of clothing: It’s a statement piece, a fashionable item that has struck the runways and covers of magazines like no other! But let’s define what a rebozo is…It consists of a narrow piece of cloth, with hints of bright colors, or embroidered with incredible patters, ranging from flowers, shapes or even characters! There aren’t many official records or registers as to the origins of rebozos but one thing is certain, similar clothing items were used before the Spanish conquest in Mexico!
We may not be certain about the origin of the rebozo but we definitely know of its evolution with time. This Mexican shawl or pashmina has gone from a multi-task clothing item, into a statement piece on the runway and a fashionable garment! Women have worn rebozos in several ways, from covering up their heads or shoulders, as well as wrapping them around them and make a carry-on sack for their children!
As mentioned above, the Fashion and Textile Museum in London, will host the Made in Mexico: The Rebozo in Art, Culture and Fashion, presenting over 200 iconic pieces of Mexico’s culture and art… Also, other contemporary Mexican artists, photographers and fashion and textile designers will be exhibiting their colorful work at the museum! An excellent chance to admire some of Mexico’s authentic essence and colors!
The exposition will showcase pieces that surely will amaze London, since the collection is made up with 18th Century pieces and contemporary clothing items used by great artists like Frida Kahlo and Lila Downs.
Art and textile are mixed wonderfully by extravagant designs from Mexican artists like Francisco Toledo, Pedro Diego Alvarado, Sergio Hernández and Guillermo Olguín, to name a few…
The Fashion and Textile Museum in London will exhibit the Made in Mexico: The Rebozo in Art, Culture and Fashion display until August 30th so if you have the opportunity of visit this exposition… then do so! It will be an artistic experience that you will love.
