información

The Mexican illustrator and engraver, José Guadalupe Posada, created Calavera de la Catrina, the “Skeleton of the Female Dandy,” as an icon of death used to satirize the upper classes during the reign of Porfirio Diaz, president of Mexico at the turn of the century. 

It was in this gender that Posada created la Calavera Garbancera that later became La Catrina the iconic image of death in modern Mexican culture. La Catrina was created to let the people know the real situation the country was going through.

Today we associate this imagery with Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, a Mexican holiday celebrated in cultures around the world that honors and celebrates the lives of who have passed. It has its roots in the Aztec festival for the Goddess Mictecacihuatl, The Lady of The Dead, as well as Catholic origins from All Saints Day and All Souls Day.

Maybe the best way to satirize society today is to look gorgeous in a Mexican Peasant Blouse. Skull makeup is optional.

The Te Gustaría Salir Dress. Bold and crisp with a color palette that is both evocative and mesmerizing. You'll be getting compliments.
