7 Mexican-Owned Fashion, Home & Accessory Brands to Know (2022)

And YES- they are oh so chic! On the heels of Cinco de Mayo, we are continuing to celebrate Mexican heritage all month long by shining a light on Mexican business owners (both in LA and Mexico.) As a Mexican American, who grew up in California, visible Mexican, female CEOs were in short supply and so were Mexican-owned luxury brands.

Turquoise is a Mexican-owned contemporary lifestyle destination and brand that sells chic and inspired outfit essentials for every woman. It is owned by empowered women, to empower women! Their garments are trendy and shared in real life contextual spaces so you can imagine yourself at brunch, on a day out in the garments. Turquoise goes beyond clothing retail, into an inspirational place online, for women to access the best parts of themselves. If you’re in the U.S. and ordering, don’t be alarmed, the pricing is all in PESOS 😉 so they’ll appear much higher. Happy shopping!

“Table-scaping”- a term I recently learned that embodies every aesthetic step in setting a good table! Get ready, because you’ll want to buy just about every piece after reading more. Zash is a pandemic-born brand with staying power, led by two Mexican women, Zarina and Margarita. During quarantine, Zarina founder herself locked in a house with two teenage daughters who were starving for a spark of excitement or anything resembling a social affair. She thought, how can I create a moment that’s truly special for them? The answer: by transforming a meal into an occasion! She began by embroidering napkins to make the space look special and eventually teamed up with Margarita (who has a background in interior design) to form Zash. Their products are luxurious and joyful, making a happy contribution to all who set their tables using the porcelain sets or hand-embroidered serviettes.  “It’s about the experience of being generous. Inviting someone into your home, rather than hitting a near by restaurant.”- Zarina Rivera
