How Sioux was born
Sioux was a dream and a way to bring new brands to Mexico. It was a commitment and a risk to show a new lifestyle, but Claudia thought is was time to show a more European way to live and to dress and also a new perspective of how to see fashion. She wanted to bring a way of life that not only includes fashion, but also music, art, traveling and everything that inspires her. Sioux was born also as an idea to be a community and support it. Her best clients and friends are chefs, graphic designers, fashion stylists, editors, writers, photographers, musicians, coffee and food lovers. Creative People. And she likes to support any independent business as well as the community.
“Fashion is an extension of who you are”
Sioux was born in September of 2012 in Mexico City. The store was an open store but fast that year it became to work “only by appointment”. This concept was change because Claudia wanted to give all her attention and really help people to have a different experience of shopping and also of choosing the proper garment very carefully. “A piece that last a lifetime”. It started with different brands. Nowdays the store has developed and carries brands such as Acne Studios, A.P.C., Ganni, FAP / Filles a Papa, Garçons Infideles and BLK DNM.
