Our trip to Mexico City was filled with art and culture. When others go to the beach to forget and relax, we travel to discover and learn about subjects new and different from our own. While wandering the streets, a banner ad for the exhibit El arte de la indumentaria y la moda en Mexico, 1940-2015 caught our eye. So we popped in. Admission was free to explore this lovely building, where there were two floors filled with beautiful dresses. They were stunning, traditional, historical, daring, of-their-decade, and just fascinating to study. Students of fashion were walking around with sketch pads and cameras studying each piece. One student seemed to be photographing the same ones I was interested in. I remember him making a comment to me in Spanish that we seemed to like the same styles.
Fashion is not something I really keep up with at all, but I appreciate the art and skill designers have to manifest their visions. I enjoy exploring different areas of art and creativity. Areas I couldn’t do because it just isn’t my natural talent. It helps me stay curious and grow in the kinds of visions I can have for my work.
