DRESS OF MEXICO
This presentation will explore the shapes and types of dress in Mexico, from prehispanic to Colonial times. Embellishments of these shapes, via woven symbols, will also be explored, as styles represent singular regions, social classes, or purpose of use. In addition, we'll explore global influences, from Europe and Asia.

She has a B.A. in Political Science/International Relations, a Certificate in Latin American/Caribbean Studies from Florida International University, and received a Masters Degree from The Thunderbird School of Global Management in Glendale, Arizona.
Latin blood runs through her veins. Stephanie has traveled extensively throughout Mexico and, given her cultural and language fluency, has gained access to many off-the-path locations and communities. When her friends ask why she always goes back to Mexico, she replies, “Mexico is a vast country with so many diverse regions. You could spend a lifetime visiting Mexico and never see it all”. Tia Stephanie invites you to share her passion for Mexico and the Mexican people, our neighbors to the South.
