Mex And The City’s London TOP 5 for Cinco de Mayo

Many Mexicans deny Cinco is celebrated in Mexico, but truth is… border towns do, they hold parades and celebrations for Battle of Puebla, as well as in Puebla itself, celebrating that battle won against the French back in 1862.

As it’s become a chance to celebrate Mexican culture around the world, we gear up to celebrate – From Home – this time, London’s very first Cinco de Mayo Fest, a celebration of border culture, we invited Mex and the City‘s Erika to tell us her London TOP 5:

Fernando lives between London and Mexico and works with natural materials.  His Pink Beasts installation during Miami Art Week 2019 was a favorite of ours.   Fun fact – the fabric was dyed using cochineal insects ( the insects live on prickly pear cactuses) and he  worked with a collective in Oaxaca to create the hammocks and the sloths. 

Jewelry designer:

Jill Hopkins
