Barreira emerging designers: MG Design and CuberoQuesada at Umbracle Valencia9:00 AM
It feels like ages since the last time I attended a local fashion event! Everything feels like a hurricane since I ended classes, and coming back to blogging was a must-to-do thing on my list. Since it's summer (and a really warm one in Valencia, I must say) fashion events, presentations and launch parties surrounded by iced tea, cocktails, friends and nice music have taken over the city. And all I could do about it was to say yes, have fun and tell you everything happening around!
Last Thursday night I was invited to one of the chicest, trendiest party place in Valencia to have a look at two recently graduated fashion designers' collections who are already succeeding and catching everybody's eye at the city. Marcos Gamón (MG Design) and Adrián Cubero (CuberoQuesada) collections are the result of their Final Graduation Project at Barreira A + D school and were first launched about a month ago on a graduation fashion show. Thursday night was their second release on a more relaxed, informal ambient. All I can say is that I'm glad I attended, and I'm thankful I was able to see first hand their effort and hard work during their course. Both collections are different, have different influences, shapes and techniques, but both of them were almost as proficient I thought I was spotting a catwalk on a professional fashion show.
I'm glad I could have the opportunity to meet this two emerging designers and have a really fun night among fashion and friends. It was so terribly warm outside I decided to match my outfit with the tropical, humid weather we're suffering in Valencia with this colorful, patterned midi dress from Ted Baker and my Rondine tote bag, where I'm always able to carry my camera and blogger survival kit. Definitely, a night to remember which may be repeated in coming days for the Chapelle Magazine event!
I was wearing:
Ted Baker "Valeena Paisley Toucan" dress
MaxMara "Rondine" tote bag
Marcos Gamón with his collection"WW.0", which was awarded at Barreira A+D graduation fashion show. Based only on black & white colors but playing with different textures as mesh fabric and faux leather, he creates two different characters which intertwine.
Adrián Cubero Quesada with his collection"Pentalfa", creates really dynamic and natural silhouettes which are meant to be moved, to walk, to be lived as Da Vinci's engines were, and in which inventions is based this collection.
