A public fashion parade, showcasing nearly 3,084 models, dressed in clothes created by amateur designers and fashion design students, has been recently organized at Chapultepec Park, Mexico City.
Dubbed as El desfile más grande del mundo (meaning The World’s Largest Parade), the event showcased an array of relaxed streetwear styles mixed with indigenous designs, inspired from the dresses sported by Mexico’s rural and urban people.
Jointly organized by the ‘Instituto de Estudios Superiores de Moda Casa de Francia’ and the city mayor office, the show saw models parading in hip-hop style graffiti adorned baggy clothes, printed with pre-Columbian Mayan culture-influenced symbols. 
The parade was designed with the aim to break the Philippines’ Makati City’s famous world record creating catwalk, featuring 2,225 models on the ramp.
Held at the Glorietta Mall in December, 2012, the show named ‘Move to the Vibe of Glorietta’ was organized to put Philippines high on the world’s fashion map.
The event bagged the coveted Guinness World Record approved title ‘Most people walking on a catwalk’.
