Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican celebration to remember the victory of Mexican troops led by the General Ignacio Zaragoza over French troops during the battle of Puebla in 1882. It is not the Independence Day, which is celebrated the 16 September. Cinco de Mayo is also increasingly celebrated in California and the South West of the US.
I like Mexican culture in all its aspects, including fashion, food and literature. Many years ago I bought a Mexican dress in the market of Ciudad de Mexico. I was hesitating and the seller, an old man, told me Senhorita, you cannot leave Mexico without an embroidered dress. The dress kept all its colours after all these years and I always wear it with pleasure.
These are some pics of Mexican fashion:
