Kika Rodríguez: cutting-edge creativity and tradition deeply rooted in the Yucatán

I have the pleasure to share my interview with one of Merida, Mexico’s most innovative and creative fashion designers Kika Rodriguez​.

With over 20 years in the fashion industry Kika`s inspiring couture collections are colorful, intricate and custom-made.  Her designs are both a mix of cutting-edge creativity and traditions deeply rooted in the Yucatecan culture.  She works intimately with the local artisans and is an advocate of paying the Mayan embroiders a fair wage and providing them a fair working environment. She dresses people from all over the world.

Check out the exclusive video below with Kika Rodriguez brought to you by Stephanie Carmon and Tin Castro from MID CityBeat.
