Havi, 22

What do you do?
I'm a model, DJ, and visual artist.

Who's giving you hope for the future of fashion?
The people on the streets are my main inspiration, they're the ones giving me hope along with [the label] Barragan, and amazing people from Instagram such as @d34d60y and @eclectic.hoe.

Shamadhi, 20

What do you do?
I run a pet shop.

Who's giving you hope for the future of fashion?
There's a new modeling agency called Guerxs in Mexico City, it's run by María Osado. It's really giving way to a wider and more down-to-earth paradigm of what beauty is. I guess I'm hopeful about what kind of snowball effect might surface after this. We need more pioneers in this city.

Diego Madrid, 20

What do you do?
I'm a model and tattoo artist.

Walk us through the perfect Friday night in Mexico City, from dusk till dawn.
First you must go to La Chicha in Colonia Roma, it's one of my favourite places! You can have a very nice dinner and a few tasty drinks with friends there. Later you can finish with El Centro de Salud, which is also in Roma. It's a underground place with a punk-goth vibe. They play 80s music, real classics. I love it.

Alan Balthazar Del Angel Betancourt, 28

What do you do?
I'm a visual merchandiser, visual artist, performer and photographer.

Tell us about an artist from Mexico City we should be paying attention to.
Me, always.

Victor Hugo Garcia, 20

What do you do?
I'm a producer and DJ.

Who's giving you hope for the future of fashion?
Ready to Die, a local clothing brand. I collaborated with them, making music for the presentation of their new collection. Also Baby Rat, which is another of my favourite clothing brands. I think they both bring something different to the fashion scene.
