Mexico City’s Fashion Design Takamura 1/8 Pop-Up Show in Oaxaca, Friday and Saturday

Every time I go to Mexico City, I try to schedule a weekend stopover so I can get to the Bazaar del Sabado in San Angel. It’s there that I find contemporary and indigenous clothing, vintage collectibles, street vendors selling wares from all over Mexico, and the up-and-coming brand Takamura 1/8 from Mexico fashion designer Guillermo Vargas.

Vargas will be in Oaxaca this Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., only for a pop-up show/sale in collaboration with/at Colectivo 1050 Grados at the Plazuela Cruz de la Piedra on upper Garcia Virgil near the acqueduct.  Remember where El Quinque used to be? This is the neighborhood. I plan to be there on Friday morning.

What I love about these clothes is their easy flow, Japanese and indigenous influences, abstract/asymmetrical design, innovation and comfort. Note that I say influences — not copied!

Fabrics are highest quality. Seams are well-finished. Garments fit and wear beautifully. Each time I visit Mexico City, I seem to walk away with a shirt or a dress that works either here in Oaxaca, in Mexico City or in the USA.

Love these clothes!

La belleza de la tradición & la innovación se unen en Oaxaca.

Colectivo 1050° es una marca de objetos de barro, hechos a mano en Oaxaca por talentosos artesanos. Los diseños son creados en colectivo, e integran la sabiduría de la tradición con el dinamismo de la innovación.
