Fashion consultant Sara Galindo has a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Sciences and a Masters in Humanity by Universidad Anahuac in Mexico City. She started her career in fashion working as Fashion Coordinator for Caras magazine. This opportunity empowered her in the editorial world, and enhanced her desire to develop a professional career within the fashion industry. Her incredible talent and passion lead her to become the executive editor at ELLE Mexico magazine, where she worked for almost 12 years and was a key element in the positioning of the brand. She brought the work of the best international photographers, stylist, and makeup artists to Mexico. “Working at ELLE is the best job I could have chosen in my youth”, she said. “Throughout my years at ELLE I was able to make a difference and boost the fashion industry in my country”.
Sara shared with us that working at ELLE Mexico gave her the opportunity to travel the world, meet amazing people, and above all things, live her dream life. This gave her access to very unique experiences, which she treasures very much. “I traveled to amazing and unique spots around the globe and met the creative minds behind amazing projects”, she said. “It is incredible to arrive at a place and be greeted by the creator of such beauty; the founder, the designer, the architect or the chef of the best restaurants in the world”.
Nowadays, Sara and her business partner Maria Jose launched Mexicouture. It is an e-commerce platform where you can find the best designs of the most talented Mexican designers. It is a platform that allows us to compete internationally within the fashion industry. She is also working on other projects, one of them with the FTBC (Fashion Target Breast Cancer) created by the CFDA. By participating in this project we will be able to support and help thousands of diagnosed women. Furthermore, one of her current activities consists in giving conferences to teach new talents the importance of Digital Fashion Marketing.
For Sara, fashion is an absolute art. It exists everywhere and it is present in every single moment. “Fashion is the voice of what is happening in history, culture, and”, she said. “It is the representation of our generations. Every visual manifestation is related to fashion”. Her main objective is to put Mexico City on the map as one of the top fashion cities. She works hard to make sure that Mexican talent gets known globally. She is sure that the impact bloggers have today is unquestionable: “Bloggers have given speed and live streaming to the fashion industry”, she says.
She admires the simplicity, minimalism, and drama of Alexander Wang´s work. She loves the designs of Prabal Gurung and Christopher Kane; her favorite boutique is Montaigne Market in Paris. The last thing she bought is a pair pointy shoes with transparent details by Gianvitto Rossi. Her favorite karaoke song is Bordeline by Madonna, and her biggest style icons are Caroline de Maigret, Anja Rubik, Lou Doillon, and editor Carine Roitfeld. Working in fashion has given the opportunity to experience incredible moments, but she says that having dinner with Karl Lagerfeld at The Lion in New York is by far the most amazing of them all.
Sara has become an ambassador within the fashion industry. The Fancy Archive admires her trajectory and the incredible work she has achieved. She helped Mexican talent to thrive and shine. But most of all, she has dedicated her entire career to one thing only: Position and empower the Mexican fashion industry around the world.
