MI GOLONDRINA draws inspiration from traditional Mexican hand-embroidery. Each piece of clothing is sewn in small villages in Mexico by experienced artisans who have handed down these methods for more than two centuries. Cindy JAMES c/o ALYSSA PIZER MANAGEMENT staged the latest collection in fresh looks. In front of the camera stood Hannah Donker and Veronica Zoppolo (hair & make-up: Lisa Martensen).
The driving force behind this extraordinary label is Cristina Lynch: “Mi Golondrina’s mission is to share the timeless beauty and traditions of artisan-made clothing with the world. Today, Mi Golondrina partners with over 600 artisans from all over Mexico. I founded Mi Golondrina in 2013 to share the beauty of Mexico with the modern-day woman. Inspired by my mother’s Mexican heritage and love of Mexican art, I wanted to continue telling the story of Mexican art by preserving the traditions of hand-embroidery and empowering artisans throughout Mexico. Every Mi Golondrina garment is born in the small villages of Mexico, hand-stitched by skilled artisans who have been using these methods for over 200 years.”
