Last two days of Pasarela de las Artes 2018. Processing and classifying all the pictures has been a long journey, as it's been almost two weeks since the shows ended but things have been quite busy! As the journey to deliver my thesis is getting into an end and the academic year in Spain is about to finish very soon too, my days are getting busier and busier.

Anyway. Saturday and Sunday were quite busy days at the Pasarela de las Artes in Valencia, as there were held the fashion shows of the most experienced featured designers. We could enjoy very different materials, concepts and stage arrangements as in Gilles Ricart and his collection made out of hand-painted suede leather, Zoraida Cases, and her vintage 20's era vibes in robes, silk, and diadems with appliques and feathers. Pablo Escudero's collection was all about colorful frills with a very Spanish and Mediterranean ambiance, with gala dresses ready for flamenco dancing and Southern fiestas.

It was also great to meet other fellow Valencia-based bloggers and influencers, who were super kind and welcoming and from whom I could learn a couple of useful Instagram tips! It's always great to know that although being based in a medium-sized city like Valencia, there are always people interested in fashion and design, people always looking to invest their time and capacities into new technologies and procedures to get the best of local manufacturing processes and traditional materials (as silk or cotton, with a large use in our fallera gowns). So, let's get started with a couple of lines about each collection shown these couple of days at the Pasarela de las Artes:

Aliaga By Aliaga's collection reminded me a lot of to this year's theme at the MET Ball, "Heavenly bodies" with those all white gowns embellished with pearls, lace, overlapping layers of transparency and a mystery halo all over every single piece shown.

Pablo Escudero comes from the city of Córdoba but is currently based in Valencia, and his origins are present in every gown of his collection. Frills, polka dots, flowers and lots of different colors who transport us to the South of Spain with flamenca gowns reinterpreted into pieces to be worn on a more day to day basis, like a special family event or occasion.

Gilles Ricart's professional career in fashion started in 1987 and since then, he's been translating his background in graphic design into colorful geometrics and shapes present in his garments. Eclectic and chic, the hand painted fabrics give every piece a unique sense of authenticity.

Miguel Carbonell puts together his career in fashion design with his interest in scenic arts and theatre, mixing them both and getting very dramatic and powerful looks as a result. At Pasarela de las Artes he put into the stage a set of mesmerizing hand-painted silk corsets and assembles inspired in Rococó era with hints of ancient silk trading routes.

Zoraida Cases collection played with silk, feathers, and very defined straight silhouettes to obtain a collection directly taken from the flapper era. Clean and polished encounters between the many different materials result in elegant and refined garments which could be worn in the most varied kind of events.

Antonio Faus beautifully crafted designs were all about draped shapes, clean lines and very defined edges in different colors. Heavy fabrics formed A-line skirts in varying lengths in a collection which used floral crowns and diadems as accessories to add an ethereal, fairytale atmosphere.

Last but not least, Esther Canet showed a flowery collection, with designs with unique patterns which reminded of the countryside but in a sort of urban way, with knee-length dresses and skirts, jumpsuits and rompers and comfortable and versatile pieces to be worn on the go.
