With a culture as vibrant as Mexico's, the nation's talented designers have a lot of inspiration to work from and are a force to be reckoned with

Interesting silhouettes, vibrant colours and minimal lines is what fashion designer Kris Goyri is all about. He started his career from a very young age, and it was in 2008 at the age of 22 when he was selected as Elle’s New Mexican Talent. His style focuses on creating pure and exquisite subtle pieces with a deep understanding of  women’s body.

2/5SANTIAGO LOMELLI

Self-taught Mexican designer Santiago Lomelli was born in Guadalajara, a city of culture that is referred to as the “Pearl of the West”. Santiago designs clothes with a respect towards individual personality and loves highlighting the natural beauty of the body. He opened his first clothing store at the age of 17 and in only a couple years after that found himself fulfilling his Parisian dream of owning his own studio-atelier in Saint-Germain de Pres.

3/5PINEDA COVALIN

Dedicated to creating pieces that combine elements of indigenous Mexican and contemporary art,  Pineda Covalin is the baby of textile designer Cristina Pineda and industrial designer Ricardo Covalin, both of who have played a key role in putting Mexico on  global fashion map. Expect magnificent colours and patterns derived from Mexican motifs on flowy and contemporary designs.  A testament to their brilliant vision, Pineda Covalin's works have been displayed  in New York and at the Musée d’Orsay and Louvre in Paris.

4/5BENITO SANTOS

Benito Santos' label is known and loved for its beautiful dramatism and elegant silhouettes. He has had the privilege of dressing elite personalities from all over the world and was the first Mexican designer to dress  national and international elite as well as being the first Mexican designer to dress the hugely popular contestant on season 9 of RuPaul's Drag Race, Valentina. With more than 10 years of experience in fashion and all his success, it's funny to think that Benito was once on his way to become a doctor. That was before he discovered his true passion by catching himself drawing designs on paper incessantly.

5/5ALEJANDRO CARLIN
