Once Upon a Time in MexiCali

Designing my first collection, and I couldn't be more excited!
I find that my biggest inspiration for it is the song "Down in Mexico". Of course, it's a Spring/Summer line.
My fabrics are going to be light, flowing drape meets stretchable structure. The overall themes are Cinco de Mayo, Los Dias Muertos, little rocker girl all grown up with a touch of retro, and she's going on vacation. I want to do some screenprinting (when I learn how) as well. My creativity is flying and I've came up with 6 outfits so far that need to be rendered, so I thought I would provide the soundtrack to this collection to whichever poor souls actually read this blog. But if you DO read this, and need a nice summer soundtrack, you should track down these tunes, and then subscribe to my blog so I know you exist!!
