A dozen of Mexico’s top designers bring a pop-up boutique to Galleria Dallas

The exhibition to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month will showcase hand-designed textiles, custom hats, resort wear, sustainable activewear, jewelry, purses and shoes.

Pop-up boutiques are popular for introducing shoppers to new designs and fashions they otherwise might not discover.

For a dozen of Mexico’s top designers, a pop-up at Galleria Dallas this weekend is a window into the U.S. market, says Abelardo Marcondes, founder of LuxuryLab Global, a Latin American forum that’s partnering with the mall.

The exhibition to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month will showcase hand-designed textiles, custom hats from San Miguel de Allende, resort wear, sustainable activewear, jewelry, purses and shoes. For the mall, it’s a chance to bring a unique group of designers to North Texas.

“Galleria Dallas has long been a key destination for those traveling from Mexico to Texas, and we’re proud to now bring Mexico’s top designers to North Texas so our shoppers might discover the sophisticated and hand-crafted treasures being created by Mexico’s creative community,” said Galleria Dallas general manager Angie Freed.

LuxuryLab kicked off 11 years ago with goals of focusing on sustainability and supporting the growth of Latin American brands internationally. While the group usually hosts industry summits, the pop-up gives it a consumer-oriented event in a high-profile location. The mall’s 200 retailers and restaurants attract more than 12 million visitors annually.

“It’s a way to promote the businesses and make them more visible,” Marcondes said. “It’s our mission of creating business.”

One of the companies traveling to Galleria is Shoplosophy, an online store for year-round resort wear.

“I think it’s very important that we start to share more worldwide, and especially with the United States,” said Analia Aguilar, owner of Shoplosophy.

The pop-up is open to shoppers from noon to 6 p.m. Friday through Sunday on Level 1 across from Gucci.

Other artisans appearing at the Galleria include:

Raquel Orozco, designer of women’s special occasion apparel.

Pineda Covalin, hand-designed textiles for men and women.

Maia Hats, custom hats from San Miguel de Allende.

Enrique García, luxury jewelry and bags from the silver town of Taxco.

Regina Donde, women’s sportswear and dresses from Punta Mita.

Piel Canela, an art and design studio.

Regina Romero, women’s shoes.

BIBLIOTECA, sustainable activewear for men.

Concepción Orvañanos, women’s dresses.
