Bogotá is an incredibly hip and edgy city where you’ll that the locals like to express themselves with what they are wearing. And where are they getting all of these cool clothes? Possibly from an emerging scene of their own local independent designers. In Bogotá, you can find one of a kind items to bring back home and I find that the prices are very reasonable for the quality you are getting. Plus when you shop local, you are helping to support the creative design scene in Bogotá rather than buying mass-produced items at the mall.

So skip the mall, here are the best spots to shop clothing, shoes, decor, and more from independent designers in Bogotá, Colombia.
