CDMXFW (known formally as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Mexico) took place from October 10 through October 15.

Mexico's Fashion Week is celebrating its 11th anniversary -- its 10th with Mercedes Benz as sponsor. As reported by W Magazine CDMXFW is unlike its counterparts in New York, London, Milan or Paris. 

"Venues are not hastily erected in car parks, but carefully selected to represent different aspects of the city, from runways set within the cloisters of a 16th century convent to the printing presses of national newspaper "El Universal" and in the kitchen of the Sheraton Hotel, where models walked the metal countertops swathed in textured black capes." 

"Mexican designers are able to take cues from traditional aesthetics and culture (such as customary embroideries) and combining them with political themes and eclectic streetwear such as ripped denim and cropped tees, basketball jerseys and long Tehuana skirts, as worn by Frida Kahlo. The result? Collections filled with gender play and contradiction, where the men's clothing especially can be worn by women, and vice versa."
