Carla is a Mexico City-based fashion designer whose work extends the continuum of indigenous textiles of Mexico into contemporary clothing. She has collected and cataloged hundreds of indigenous garments, discovering that almost all of them were made from square and rectangular lengths of fabric cut directly from the loom and sewn flat. Carla has followed this pre-Columbian concept to tailor her garments. She works with more than 94 artists in five states and eight communities to complete her clothing with hand embroidery, beadwork, and leather fretwork. In most cases, the fabric itself is woven by local weavers. IFAM Creative Director, Keith Recker, will introduce and moderate
