PLACE: Preston Hollow, Dallas

WORK: Creator and Owner of Mi Golodrina

STORY: The word heritage has such a rich meaning in Cristina Lynch’s life. She lives at home with her parents, who are both successful business people in their own rights, in their stunning Preston Hollow estate of Dallas. Cristina is in the beginning years of her clothing company, Mi Golondrina, and living at home is a practical decision she made as a result. It’s not much of a jump to assume that she has learned a thing or two about business from her parents. Perhaps more obvious than the business lessons, though, would be the love for traditional Mexican culture and art that Cristina’s mother especially has shared. Their home is practically a museum of Mexican art! When I met Cristina, it was a dark and gloomy day which only made the dark woods, thick walls, and rough stone surfaces of their home feel even more full of history. The family was preparing for a casual evening party when I arrived and evidence of their preparations could be found throughout the home. As we walked from room to room, Cristina shared the stories of each art piece and artifact that we passed with such genuine enthusiasm and fondness… it was as if they were old childhood friends.

Cristina’s mother (also a Cristina) shared her native Mexican culture with her daughter from an early age. Cristina shares, “earliest memories are of us dancing to our favorite mariachi band while wearing beautiful embroidered blouses and long flowing dresses”. This more than anything else in her thus far very full life, seems to have had the greatest impact on Cristina’s subsequent style story. She dresses simply, focusing on craftsmanship and authenticity over excessive embellishments and trends. She surrounds herself with talented people who share a mutual appreciation for Mexican culture. And she’s made it her company’s focus to help a special group of women from rural Mexico find greater financial stability and purpose through the work she commissions them to do for her company.

Later in the week, we’ll learn more about Cristina’s business pursuits, but for now let’s take a look at her beautiful life at home.

I should note that all of the pieces of embroidered clothing in today’s story are from Cristina’s clothing line, Mi Golondrina. Cristina shared so many wonderful lessons about being a new business owner, the importance of craftsmanship, and traditional Mexican culture in our conversation for the podcast. You won’t want to miss it! Come back in a couple days to hear all about her story as well as a tour of her showroom and workspace.
