New York, Milan, and Paris dominate the fashion scene, but beautiful
Barcelona has made a name for itself in this fiercely competitive field.
The city has created Barcelona Fashion Week to showcase its innovative
designers, unique perspectives, and cutting-edge fashions. Planners of
the 2007 premiere said they hoped to turn Barcelona into one of the
foremost showcases for fashion on an international level and an
unmistakable point of reference in the world of fashion and cutting-edge
design. They hoped to create a culture of fashion and show the world
that Barcelona. The eyes of the fashion world are on Barcelona.
Perhaps the most famous of Barcelonas designers is Custo, created by
David and Custodio Dalmau. Their designs have been featured on Sex and
the City, Friends, and on numerous gorgeous celebrities. Coveted,
award-winning, and internationally renowned, Custo does Barcelona proud
and shows the world that Barcelona is indeed a point of reference in the
world of fashion. Exciting designers Josep Abril, La Casita de Wendy,
Antonio Miro, Joaquim Verdu, Armand Basi, and many more are helping to
transform Barcelona into a leading fashion capital.
In Barcelona, one can find all the international designer labels,
including Chanel, Mont Blanc, Miro, Gucci, Armani, and Cartier, as well
as the citys own exciting designers. Barcelona will not take a backseat
to London, New York, Paris, Milan, Rome, or Hong Kong. The city was
named by Global Language Monitor as the fourteenth biggest fashion city
in the world but these proud Spaniards would beg to differ. Exciting,
innovative, unique, and daring, Barcelona fashion is on the cutting-edge
and steadily edging its way up to the top of the list.
Barcelonas fashion scene is not just evident on the catwalks. It is seen
on the streets and in the clubs of the city. In general, the citizens
of this unique city dress beautifully, if on the conservative side.
Clothing is well fitted, and the cuts are sophisticated and flattering.
Revealing clothing is not generally well liked, as the Spanish have a
great respect for the body and for modesty. A close-fitting top and
linen pants is a much more appropriate choice than a mini-skirt and
bikini top. And do not forget the shoes! Barcelona loves gorgeous shoes,
which can make or break the outfit.
Barcelona is a beautiful city in every aspect: its architecture,
culture, cuisine, and fashion make the city as vibrant and vivid as any
in the world.
