interview: aida coronado

I want to wish all of my Mexican friends a very happy Cinco de Mayo! To celebrate we have a beautiful interview and giveaway from the gorgeous Aida Coronado! Their shop announcement says, “We enjoy bringing our traditions and vintage techniques to this new world, we create and believe in…pieces with a heart, clothes to love and wear every day. We love what we do.” And you can tell!  Each piece is so thoughtfully and beautifully put together. You’ll fall in love!

Q. Could you tell us a little about yourself?
My name is Aida and I am a lucky girl who was born in beautiful Mexico, I grew up living between the Mexican and the North American cultures. I was the kind of girl that was always doing things her own way and getting in trouble because of that, I remember a lot my maestra (teacher) undoing all my embroidery once and again because she did not like my way of doing it, but I loved it!

I have always had trouble understanding why things have to be the way they are supposed to be? I am a very curious person, and I love doing things just because I am curious about it and want to experience it, I love my dogs cat Family and husband and feel very happy and grateful for my life. I spent a few years in the USA, and I was about to move to Canada, but then, I realized that there was so much about my own country and culture that I did not know that decided to come back to Mexico and to explore it. And I am so glad I did! I am delighted with our culture and traditions, the magic, beauty and meanings of the traditional clothing and folk art in Mexico.
