Video: Spain In Fashion
Lately there are many reasons to celebrate Spain. Stars like tennis player Rafael Nadal, car racer Fernando Alonso and the National Football Team, one of the favorites for the next World Cup, have been giving something to talk about with their multiple successes in recent years.
In the world of fashion, the Spanish are not far behind either, and to make clear the great influence that the Iberian Peninsula has had over the years in the world of design, the Association of creators of Spanish fashion (ACME) has published the beautiful book Geography of Spanish Fashion (TF Editores).
The sample, a tribute to the wealth and cultural heritage that Spain's fashion has left over the years, celebrates 25 years of fashion in this country. Focusing on the work of 28 of its most renowned designers such as Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, Andres Sarda, David Delfin, Devota & Lomba, Roberto Verino, Jesus del Pozo, Jose Miró, Amaya Arzuaga, among others, the book illustrates the rich and a diverse panorama of fashion that Spain has and that was once led by teachers such as Mariano Fortuny, Ortiz Echague and the famous Cristóbal Balenciaga.
According to designer Oscar de la Renta, who wrote one of the book's comments, it "captures the passion, elegance, dynamism, innovation and creativity that has made Spanish design admired throughout the world."
Designed by Juan Gatti and with an introduction by Modesto Lomba, President of ACME, this is a book of exquisite photographs like the one we show you here (design of the Devota & Lomba line) that will fascinate you with their beauty and leave you, again in high, the talent of the Spanish.
