This year’s color palette is 100 percent inspired by the vivid colors of the marigold flower tradition and hints of blue and purple like bougainvillea.

For accessories, elements of the typical costumes of different states were taken up, including a fan, some fun matching espadrilles and simulating the typical fabrics of Mexican folklore. 

The marigold flower headdress and detailed makeup are inspired by the trend to take the Catrina costume one level further by adding the “fashionista” factor.
