The competition to win the tiara of Miss Mexico for 2020 is getting intense. There are 32 beautiful models, all vying for one position. Recently, a photoshoot session for each of the models has been released. As they’re competing for the title of ‘Miss Mexico,’ they dressed up in costumes that are heavily inspired by Mexican ladies’ traditional wear.

The spokesperson of Miss Mexico explains that the designers of these Mexican-inspired costumes are foreigners.

The costumes materials range from cotton, bark, and agave to wool and silk. The use of these materials come from the origin of Mexican culture, which has a mix of pre-Hispanic civilizations as well as Spanish invasion later on. This is why some costumes has a twist of European style on them.

But traditional clothings that are reserved for female Mexicans vary very much between regions. They are also called differently depending on where you are. They wear sleeveless tunic with skirt that are designed with religious symbols, marital status and social status on it. They also have Quechquémitl, a kind of poncho women wear to parties and festivals.

It brings out the colors on things!
