Last Wednesday, eight o'clock evening at DeWall space in Valencia. Once again, it feels truly delightful to live on a city where there's a lot happening when it comes to fashion. Valencia is 100% conscious about its potential when it comes to design and creation, and how to show that off. Every time I got an invitation to an amateur fashion catwalk, or presentation party downtown there's no hesitation I will attend to it. There's so much to know from young designers and entrepreneurs who not only have put all their knowledge and effort into their projects, but also they're already testing new ways to share, to create and to rethink everything around. And that's thrilling.
So, last Wednesday evening my dear friend Elena and I left on hiatus mode every piece of our class-projects, and headed to DeWall and its terrace to enjoy an informal cocktail filled with sweets, beer, art, live music, friends and fashion. Lots of fashion thanks to Moda Nova Events, the newest fashion-focused event management agency in town. We had the chance to meet and greet designers who are just starting their business journey into the crowded (but exciting) world of fashion design in the most friendly and warm ambience of the terrace. Not only clothing design, but also shoemaking (Sabina Teruel is the face behind those dreamy heels you're seeing below. It was so nice to meet her and see her new collection!), headpieces and accessories by Vanela and a catwalk featuring emerging designers and fashion students as Abel Esga, Miss fü by Andrea Chafer, Vergalián STYLE and Malo Moya.
I'm so glad I could just stop for a couple hours working that evening and headed by to have a drink and enjoy not only design, but also a nice and inspiring atmosphere. A true lesson on how to make a city like Valencia committed and conscious of the talent around it, and a perfect plan for an evening near exams!
