I have been on a decade long quest for lovely fabrics in Mexico City. There are a few chains of stores (like Telas Parisina) that offer polyester and polyester blends but nothing great. Michaels craft stores (aka Miguels) also have some fabrics but not much. And not great.
But here is what I'd like to know. Is there any store in Mexico City that could match Al Puerto de Veracruz in Guadalajara?? APDV is a magnificent store w/lots of Italian silks and linens and wools to go with the polyesters. And nice cottons. And a magnificent room of really fancy silks.
There are at least as many fancy elegant women in the DF as in GDL so where do they and their seamstresses buy fabrics. They can't all be heading to NY, LA, Paris, and Milan to do their fabric shopping!
I look and ask around every time I visit but no luck to date. Does anyone have any ideas? I'd be grateful for any advice!
thanks y mil gracias in advance!
