TDoR list ref: tgeu/22-Sep-2018/Azuani Díaz García
Asuani was shot by a group of men just outside her home in Chilapa de Álvarez. She died at the scene.
Asuani had won beauty contests and was an activist, performer, stylist and acclaimed designer - she was apparently the first designer in Guerrero to adapt the region's handmade embroidery designs to haute couture fashion. Local media reported that her designs were so popular that they were even worn by women from the world of politics and entertainment.
