Pasarela de las Artes 2018 in Valencia. I haven't stopped doing things since I came back from Italy, and it feels ah-mazing. From giving an architecture & technology talk at Las Naves cultural center at the #VLCTechFest as a representative of our brand new architecture group I+D+Arq, to perfecting projects as Anastilosi and finally, this past week, taking part into the globally local event dedicated to silk, emerging design and fashion, Pasarela de las Artes, where I went to record every single thing regarding the matter as to tell you everything as soon as possible!

Pasarela de las Artes 2018 is the fourth edition of a kind of festival dedicated to arts and design gravitating local manufacture, silk fabric, and heritage held in Valencia annually. This edition was held from past June 6th, where the press conference and presentation took place to past Sunday, 10th, with the fashion shows taking place the last three days. The aim is to create synergies among disciplines with the silk as a conductive thread, and put the city of Valencia right in the middle as the main design capital. The event is under UNESCO's programme regarding "Silk Route", and as I always tell around here, it feels awesome seeing how many people in this city is interested in wearing not only beautifully crafted designs, but also, putting into value local textiles and the hands behind them.

The event has been held at the cultural center near the river called "La Beneficiència", which is an ancient house of aid for the disadvantaged, now turned into different exposition rooms and which neo-byzantine chapel has turned into an impressive assembly hall where the fashion shows took place this edition. On Friday, I got to see emerging designers Alba García and Gema Ros with their capsule collections; the swimwear show with pieces from El Corte Inglés and designer Dolores Cortés and last but not least, the Mediterranean-inspired and whimsical collection "Valentia" by Valentín Herraiz. The first day was a total blast. I ended exhausted and I didn't think I could make it successful for the successive days but at the very end I carried my battered feet downtown and carried on while "I will survive" was being played on my headphones.
