This event aims to turn Barcelona into a global showcase and an unmissable event for design lovers. Since its first edition, fashion week in Barcelona has been improving and today is a catwalk showcasing that creative and open fashion.

Volumes on the sleeves define the tone, as well as loose necklines with pleats, shoulder pads and corsets.

The news of fashion week 080 in Barcelona
This edition of the 080 Barcelona Fashion brought with it some innovations that made the experience even better, including:
Pop Ups Gallery: It was a new experimental space for the special public, where fashion brands exhibited their products as in an art gallery, accompanied by audiovisual projections and different djs.
Undress your mind: The new motto of the brand "Undress your mind" was created with the idea of abandoning the imposed conventions and opening up to the most creative fashion.
This new motto is accompanied by a "claim" or claim that corresponds to a penguin, the animal that is forced to always wear a tuxedo. With all this, they tried to convey the idea of liberation and openness to encourage people to show their personality through clothing.
