So long since I want to tell everybody the real meaning of the last AW17-18 Collection "PATHE".
This might be more like the Designer personal story but I want it to write about it before time runs away.
Pathe is the name of a community near the house of my grandma, a lovely, magical place. This community works with wool looms to manufacture blanckets. So since I start working sustainable fashion the origins of actual processes call my atention. I travel to Pathe to meet Marciano Ocampo the last craftsman or "artesano" as we call them in Mexico. Luckly I found him, and he accepted to teach me the wool loom process.
We used raw wool and he thought me how he work the loom, his principal craft its "Jorongos" my designs ideas were different of what he used to work but we found a way to achive it. In my work days with Marciano we found out that my great-grandfather was his ancle and the wool loom was made in my great-grandfather's workshop. This made me feel how all was connected.
Then in a coffe talk with a designer friend, the topic came out and she sail "Do you realize what it is? Its a tribute to your ancestors" I had nave never considered it that way , but It was and when the season came out you could see it. The real meanning of Pathe
