Mexico Fashion Week: Marvin y Quetzal Fashion Show

Straight from Mexico City, Coutorture correspondent Max Gustashaw revisits Mexico Fashion Week. For today's entry he writes on the Marvin y Quetzal Fashion Show. Be sure to check out yesterday's report on the Te Amo fashion show. Without further ado...

Mexico City, Marvin y Quetzal Fashion Show

Well-behaved and with a vicious bit of candy-cane charm, Marvin y Quetzal's Fall 08 collection reflects a basic philosophy that Quetzal sums up as, "Simplicity and extravaganza... We take a heritage of French couture, [for example] and mix it up with an indigenous influence that we have [as] Mexicans or [in Marvin's case] Venezuelans," and you can see by the velvet and the knit and the high necks, and by the bright colors, the peruvian-inspired pom shawls and pullovers, the shiny patent boots with art deco heels and the 'squito-net eyeguards descending from mandarin hats of satin, why Marvin y Quetzal is the spice mill whafting the distinct and eclectic bouquet of moda mexicana to the first-world's hungry. And while London, Australia, Los Angeles, and, indeed, American Apparel have taken note, the two keep close to home in hopes that Mexico's young designers can with workable industry revive the country's history of high fashion manufacturing and bolster the aerie in which they perch.
