As always, we love to inform you about the best fashion events in the world. We want to keep you up to date with the most important ones. We already had the opportunity to talk about the Showrooms and fashion events in Marbella. This time we have compiled the best meetings of Spanish fashion that take place in our country. Don’t miss a single detail.
If you are a fashion lover, you probably already know some of them. Fairs, exhibitions or catwalks, a wide variety of fashion events take place in Spain. Without leaving the peninsula, you will find a large number of activities related to Spanish fashion, as well as international fashion. We recommend the following events:
Madrid Fashion Week:
If we have to highlight some of the most important catwalks in the country, our first stop must be the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week or Madrid Fashion Week. Previously known as Pasarela Cibeles, it is the fashion event par excellence in our country and takes place at IFEMA. Designers and renowned firms attend to this prestigious event of Spanish fashion to showcase their new collections. Trends and latest innovations are the protagonists of the event. Besides, it is not surprising that celebrities, models, influencers, photographers etc. also participate in the event. The MBFW is held twice a year: the first time was in January 2019; the second time will be in July.
Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week:
As regards more specific catwalks, we should highlight the Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week. This fashion show brings together the best designers and brands of bridal collections of Spanish and international fashion. More than 400 outfits walk the catwalk in a date where not only dresses and garments for brides and grooms are shown, but there is also a place for evening gowns and all kinds of accessories. The event takes place from April 26th to 28th at the Montjuic Campus.
If you prefer flamenco fashion you can not miss SIMOF. The International Flamenco Fashion Show celebrated its 25th anniversary at its lastest edition, that took place in February 2019. During the event days, more than a thousand flamenco dresses walk the catwalk at the Conference and Exhibition Centre of Seville (FIBES). They also exhibited hair and accessory trends at the Feria de Abril, because SIMOF shows the latest fashion in the industry.
This event, also called Gran Canaria Swimwear Fashion Week, is the only European event focused on swimwear. At the same time, it is the biggest fashion event in the Canary Islands. National and international visitors attend this fashion show. They are from more than 30 countries that go from Germany to India, passing through South Africa.
Color and originality are the hallmarks of this summery event that sets trends in what we will find later on the most exclusive beaches.
If you like heels, shoe trees, soles, shoelaces , etc., you must know Futurmoda, a trade fair specialized in footwear. It is an international exhibition dedicated to leather, components and machinery for shoes and leather goods. This event of Spanish fashion is held twice a year in Elche (Alicante), a place with a long tradition of shoemaking. More than 300 firms showcase their products in Futurmoda.
Beyond the shows and exhibitions, there are also other types of events that will bring you closer to the world of fashion in a different way. Throughout 2019, a lot of exhibitions will take place in our country. We highlight, for example, the exhibition “Balenciaga and Spanish Painting” at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid. This exhibition, dedicated to one of the most influential designers in all history, combines fashion and painting. Paintings connect the referent of Spanish fashion with the tradition of 16th and 20th century painting in our country. This inspired him in his subsequent and successful work.
Although there is barely a month to enjoy the exhibition that we are going to talk about next (it ends on March 31st), it is worth to hurry and try to visit “La vie en Rose”, at the Garment Museum of Madrid. It tries to explain the meaning and the symbolism of the color pink in the Western way of dressing throughout history. In the exhibition we will find pieces from the National Museum of Decorative Arts, the National Archaeological Museum but also others from private collections.
However, these are just some examples. Fortunately, there are many more Spanish fashion events. If you need more, go and find them!
