When people think high fashion, Tijuana isn’t a city that comes to mind. For most of its existence, Tijuana has been dismissed as a border town of painted burros, drunken Americans, gun-slinging drug lords and polyester Quinceañera dresses.
But in the last few years, some young entrepreneurial Project Runway wannabes are changing all that. The growing movement has bred a new crop of future Mondo Guerras and Jesús Estradas – up-and-coming Latino designers who’ve appeared on Project Runway.
Much has been talked about Tijuana’s burgeoning art scene and its popular new nightlife. Now the violence-scarred city is experiencing a sort of fashion renaissance, with designers flocking to a now hip and trendy Tijuana to try and put the city on the fashion map.
