ANDE - Young designers event11:00 AM
Last Sunday we attended a fashion show organized by ANDE, which is the Spanish Association of Emerging Designers. We were invited to come to Villa-Real, a town near Valencia, where I live. So my friend and I took a 1 hour train to see the catwalk, took pictures and told all of you some of the best original, fresh ideas these young creators had in their collections.
I really liked what I saw. I'd been before on similar events, but this one had something different. I came as a guest fashion blogger to broadcast the event, which was about to choose the best designer of the province to take part on the national competition really soon. The catwalk featured some consolidated local designers which showed us their new pieces and encouraged the new designers. HiginioMateu or AlSur Moda Española were some of the guest designers.
Among pieces with really vintage style (full skirts, tweed jackets and sequins dresses) I mostly saw lots of different patterns and textures. Light and soft fabrics, thick layers of colorful materials, geometrics... Unisex clothes in some cases and elegant gowns were some of the things we could enjoy. Different styles from casual, to collections inspired on the sea or natural elements. It was an evening full of fashion, great music and new people to meet. The winner was finally María Manrique with her brand ''The Travellers'' and the models' awards went to Adrián Pastor and Sonia Serrano. Well done!
