Madrid Fashion Week started on September 14th till 19th with a new Director, new different and surprising venues hosting the shows, the summer sunshine and plenty of models and guests still dressed in summer clothes showing their “just arrived holidays summer tan”.
Dubai Fashion News was in Madrid to report with some fantastic clips from designers Custo, 2nd Skin, Alvarno, actress Macarena Gómez or the Director of the Fashion Week Charo Izquierdo.
The good news…. that next Madrid Fashion Weeks dates will no longer coincide with London Fashion Weeks, and you will be able to include Madrid in your European Fashion Weeks tour!
47 designers, six days with international well-established designers and new emergent ones, the future of the Spanish fashion panorama.
