Mi Golondrina, the Dallas brand that crafts high-quality women's clothing honoring Mexican culture, is heading to Fort Worth for a pop-up shop at The Shops at Clearfork. The pop-up shop, open May 9-June 28, is located at 5254 Monahans Ave., next to Tumi.

"The full collection will be available at the pop-up, and we're excited to bring lots of purple and white pieces from our collection — as well as custom handwoven tote bags — to our Fort Worth amigas," the company says in a release.

Mi Golondrina was founded in 2013 by Dallasite Cristina Lynch, who wanted to bridge the gap between the modern women’s wardrobe and the traditions of Mexico. She is also committed to empowering female artisans.

"Mi Golondrina partners with over 450 artisans in Mexico to create unique, one-of-a-kind, handmade pieces that represent Mexico's designs and culture," the company says. "In partnering with independent artisans, the hand-stitched embroidery work provides sustainable income for women who are able to work in the home while they care for their families."

Lynch, who grew up in a home rooted in the rich culture of her mother's Mexican heritage and love of Mexican art, spent a number of years in New York City and launched a career in fashion before returning home to North Texas to start Mi Golondrina. Lynch has been named one of the 10 most stylish people in Dallas by D Magazine.

The Mi Golondrina collection is sold in the brand's Dallas showroom, online, and at pop-ups. The Fort Worth pop-up shop will kick off with food, margaritas, and mariachis from 4-7 pm May 9. Regular hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 11 am to 7 pm and Sunday from 12-5 pm.
