PASCUALA: TEXTILE FASHION FROM CHIAPAS COMES TO BERN

Colors and styles, a multiethnic fashion show with sophisticated embroideries done by outstanding women artisans from Chiapas under the bio and feminist label of PASCUALA, is coming to “Viva México,” the fair organized by Na Bolom.ch in Bern on Saturday 19th August.

 

PASCUALA will be admired by those attending the Mexican Fair in the capital city of Switzerland during a show by models wearing trousers, tunics, blouses and dresses in magnificent and colorful embroideries with a touch of the culture of women from the indigenous communities of Chiapas, such Zinacantan. PASCUALA dresses combine perfectly woven textiles and designs ready for daily wear or special occasions.

 

The catwalk of PASCUALA will take place at “Viva México” (Freiestrasse 20, 3012-Bern) from 15:45 to 16:45 hours.

 

Come, enjoy, marvel and bring home a lovely dress, which will make you happy for a long, long time; your bonus will be to cooperate with Na Bolom.ch to support ecological projects in Chiapas.
