It’s pretty common in Mexico to see old ladies and very young girls dressed up in traditional garb. It’s colourful and different. And it’s not an uncommon sight even in Mexico City, the modern heartbeat of the country. But will the next generation of ladies, and sometimes gents, put on these old fashioned frocks when they reach that certain age? Looking around at the very chic and fashionable ladies in their teens, twenties and thirties, which I do very often indeed, I have my doubts.
