“My culture is very present in my fashion,” says Los Angeles native Sailor Gonzales (@conchitaqween), who’s in school studying fashion design and Chicano studies. “My generation spends money on things that they believe in and things that they can connect to. I really love that about the Chicano culture, because we appreciate a garment as it is a work of art, not necessarily just that it’s a shirt. We see the embroidery and the time that it took to make that — and then wearing it, and understanding the traditions, and how weaving has been passed down through generations. I love that we can appreciate that, and most importantly, pay up for that.”
This month, we’re sharing stories of Hispanic-American community members in celebration of #HispanicHeritageMonth, which runs through October 15 in the US.
Today on our story and on our IGTV channel, we’re skating around Los Angeles with Sailor learning about her life and her connection to Chicano culture. #MiVoz #MyVoice
