Color was the theme most designers wanted to explore in this edition of Mexico Fashion Week. In a country with its own version of pink, known as Mexican Rose, and the famous orange of Cempasúchil, a.k.a. Flower of the Dead, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the promise of returning to normality resulted in collections with a strong chromatic flavor.

Vero Díaz was among the designers to explore color this season. “For the first time in my life, a collection is full of energy, full of color,” said Díaz, who used familiar silhouettes to give prominence to the lively palette she proposed.

Within the Mexican market, Díaz is known for her fun interpretations of basics. On this occasion, where once she would have shown romantic dresses and utilitarian outfits, she presented party dresses and outfits that found their best selves in motion. Think ruffles, maxidresses, pleated details, and belts that fell to the floor. Every outfit had a Studio 54 vibe, even the wedding dress at the end.

In order to produce more sustainably, Díaz used leftover fabrics from past seasons that she found in her workshop like treasures. She named the collection Studio Paraíso; eden to her is her atelier, her team, and the work they do together.
