Mi Golondrina Brings Authentic Mexican Styles To Houston

in Shopping & Style by
In 2013 Cristina Lynch launched fashion brand, Mi Golondrina out of her hometown of Dallas. Lynch was raised with rich Mexican culture and fell in love with Mexican art and design early on. The brand was founded to not only introduce traditional Mexican fashion to her modern audience but support independent female artisans. Mi Golondrina now partners with over 500 artisans in Mexico to create unique, one of a kind, handmade pieces that represent Mexico’s designs and culture.

Houstonians have been a fan of Cristina and her brand since 2014 and were excited to learn she was opening up a 6-month-long pop up shop in the Rice Village. The store offers dresses, tops, skirts and custom pieces that are all hand stitched in Mexico. Each piece is vibrant, colorful of course rooted in tradition.

Similar to the Dallas flagship, the Houston Hacienda is warm and full of charm. This is due to the fact that is decorated with accessories and art from both Cristina and her mother’s personal collections. Thanks to the size of the space, there is an “artisan wall”, a museum-like collection of photographs, showcasing the artisans the company works with and process in which they make their beautiful hand-made pieces.

Visit Mi Golondrina Monday through Saturday from 10 am – 5 pm and Sunday 12 – 5 pm.
