Pop-up stores at the 080 Barcelona Fashion Week

26 Feb

At the 080 Barcelona Fashion Show I had the opportunity to not only enjoy the designer Celia Vela’s show as you could see in the previous post, but also could explore and meet local designers at their pop-up stores.

Here are some of my favourites that I discovered:

Formentera Lady & Co

The designer Claudia D’ Anca was inspired to create jewellry on the island Formentera. She lived there for many years and the magic island helped her to transform her emotions into forms and colours. That is why she created her first jewellry collection inspired by the beautiful small island Formentera.

And since then, all Formentera Lady & Co jewellry collections have been inspired by the natural beauty of the island and its flowers and colours. Her designs are also influenced by her love for Art-Deco, Orientalism and African Art.

Every single piece is made with great care and attention, which makes them special and unique.

To find out more about her, have a look at the website: http://www.formenteraladyandco.com/ or her Facebook page : https://www.facebook.com/formenteraladybisuteria

Tass Joies

Joyas de Tass, íntegramente realizada y diseñada en Tass Joies SCP.

The designers of Tass Joies find inspiration from many different places for their collection, and the breathtaking results can be seen in their jewellry creations that are shaped like islands, trees, dreams etc.   The unique jewellry is made of high-quality materials like silver, gold and is designed and made in Barcelona.

Alexia Grustan

Alexia Grustan brings old and used textiles back to life.

Alexia Grustan wanted to do something to symbolise a protest against the throwaway society we live in and give used clothes a second chance. With her ambition and her creativity she started to recycle used textiles and to create something new out of them.

All her exclusive items including bags, necklaces, bracelets, belts and accessories for shoes are recycled and handmade.

I felt in love with her designs and I totally support the idea of recycling. I myself recycled one necklace. You can find the post:  La Kukita’s style – Handmade Recycled Jewelry

La Juana

Nowadays if you want to find high-quality shoes that are still 100 per cent handmade, you have to search hard.  So it’s good that the Spanish brand La Juana offers handmade quality shoes. The story behind the brand is amazing as well as the designs themselves.

In 2010, when the crisis hit the country, many people lost their jobs and so did Juanvi, Alex and Natalia. To fight back against the crisis, the three friends had the brilliant idea to make high-quality shoes. They went to study and practice traditional shoemaking processes and their origins. Finally, the brand La Juana was born.

Since then, the shoes have been produced entirely in Spain, using high-quality materials. The designs are a mix of Mediterranean and Modern style and come in any given colour.

If you stop by their little workshop in Salzadella, Castellón and pick the color and the type of shoe you would like to have, they will make a personalised and exclusive shoe just for you.

La Kukita at the 080 Barcelona Fashion Show

19 Feb

One week before the 080 Barcelona Fashion Week Autumn – Winter 2014\15 I received a message from a lovely lady from the Spanish newspaper LaVanguardia that was saying that I was invited to join the Barcelona Fashion Show in el Born Centre Cultural to see the designer Celia Vela. I could not believe my eyes…This made my day and the whole week!

As soon as I got the invitation I start thinking about my outfit for that day. I wanted to find something that represents me. Finally, I picked blue pants with a white chiffon blouse and a white jacket. To my look I added vintage shoes and a clutch made by myself. To complete my look I decided to wear my handmade necklace. My look was ready and so was I.

Finally, the day of the 080 Barcelona Fashion Show arrived. Outside El Born Centre Cultural you could feel the Fashion Fever in the air. Journalists, Promoters, Stylists and Fashionistas, there were all there between the pop – up stores and the entrance of the building. Inside El Born Centre Cultural you could make your hair and make-up done by professional stylists and taste some Moritz beer, special beer from Barcelona.

Around 30 minutes before the actual show of Celia Vela you could see the waiting line slowly growing. All journalists, fashionistas and VIP’s could not wait the show to begin. After everyone took their seats the magnificent show started with the famous Spanish model Andrés Velencoso who presented the new collection for men. At the end of the show all the models came out together with the designer Celia Vela to give a big applause for her work.

Once the show of Celia Vela was over the guests could walk around and explore all the nice things at the pop- up stores, which have been only accessible for the special guests of the Fashion Show. There you could find so many amazing local designers. In the upcoming post you will know more about them.
