Friday, 10PM at Centro del Carmen, Valencia. Yay, can't believe I have been all the week wishing Friday finally arrived, not only to get some rest but also for the emerging designers/fashion event organized by Circuito de la Moda from Valencia and it has already passed by!
Circuito de la Moda Valencia is a national fashion platform which features young emerging creatives and every month looks for new faces for this designers presentations and catwalks. They do some events on Valencia, and this time we were invited to meet the collections by Anna Vicent, Yana Oblap and Fashionart, which is a crew of young designers based on the Valencian College of Fine Arts. The event had an unique placement downtown, on a former convent converted into a XXI century museum. Imagine what was running through my mind when entering there and see that pure-awesomeness-piece of archi-culture.
But not everything was fine, and I feel like I must write down my critic about the event, as a constructive review. The lounge where the catwalk was held, was not made for such use as evidenced by it being narrow, where it was really complicated to place chairs for the over 400 who attended the event, who had to watch it standing almost one hour. As you can see in the pictures, as people had to stand, taking pictures was an ordeal: everyone was in front on me or had to peek to see when the models where coming, and therefore half of the pictures I took have publics' heads, or hands or backs everywhere. Very good event, but had a really poor configuration and structure talking about how to put the guests and develop the catwalk itself.
The conclusion is that, unless you want to destroy your feet (and nerves) with zebra shoes like mine the next time you attend an event where you can not just sit but also see nothing, go anyway with your sneakers and have fun.
Anna Vicent collection ''Peonía'', which features a really feminine shapes and soft fabrics reminding Spring and flowers. Delicate and super stylish:
