A fashion showcase and informational event will be held February 15th in appreciation of the recent fund raising event will include Chiapas-inspired clothing by International designer Xitlali Designs, a special dance performance, and looks from Mexican-American human rights activist and celebrated designer, María Gordillo. The show will take place at Museo de Las Americas 861 Santa Fe Drive fro 6 to 8pm.
In response to the community’s support, this appreciation event, entitled “Chiapas – Esencia Artesanal”
will thank sponsors, participants, donors, and also award silent auction items for which bids were placed
during the last month.
Parallel Artistic productions in conjunction with Xitlali designs and Mexican non-profit
organization, ConcentrARTE, announce a follow-up to their January 2018 benefit fashion and
performance show that collected donations to help survivors of the devastating 2017 earthquake in a
new, and more holistic, manner.
About the non-profit recipient – ConcentrARTE, in association with organizations such as Pontis Mexico,
not only help in the rebuilding of residents ́ homes, but also educate through workshops designed to
support resilience in the face of adversity through art. A proposed budget and plans for workshops and
reconstruction efforts in Mexico is available at the GoFundMe page below. This product will benefit 40
families, or 303 residents of Chiapas.
