Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Mexico City - Fall/Winter Collections 2011

When did I become a person who lives in one of the largest cities in the world and attends major events like Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

my people
At some point, this became my reality, so I'll just go with it.

It was way back in March when the event went up, but I decided to blog about it now, so you can plan your wardrobe and be right on trend for the new season.

Here are some trends to watch for the seasons ahead.

Styles by students of Jannette Klein University. The collections are called Frozen Sunshine and Moon Sparkle.

The MBDFM collection was dedicated to the memory of late design mentor, Cesar Franco.
 Pepa Pombo (top right, below) kept it fresh by juxtaposing chunky textures with sleek lines.  A bright, ruffled snood harkens back to the Renaissance but keeps it understatedly modern as well.

Elena Gomez Toussaint (above L, and bottom R) showed natural colors, sleek lines, chunky snoods, and sleek armwarmers.
 And on to the main event: Julia Y Renata!
