Madrid Fashion Week, formerly known as Pasarela Cibeles, is the meeting point of fashion where we update what’s going on the next season. Here the best fashion designers show their creations. Juanjo Oliva, Aghata Ruiz de la Prada, Duyos, Hannibal Laguna, Amaya Arzuaga, Roberto Torreta, Antonio Alvarado, Ángel Schlesser or Miguel Palacio have really good models. Glamour and design are the keys that define Madrid Fashion Week.
Fashion shows always are strictly punctual, and for this reason I like grabbing my seat a few minutes before the start and watch the guest’s dresses and the front row, where some celebrity always use to be. The staunch spanish fashion designers don’t doubt investing some of their time to acclaim the new season collections. Oh, wait! … Stir between photographers, tv cameras and social programmes journalists: It’s someone famous!!!
After the show, we’re going to the Kissing Room, the meeting point where the proposals are commented and the designer is congratulated. A place to see and to be seen. A place where you can drink a cocktail while waiting for the next show.
But, as in every edition, we don’t focus only in the models shown on the stage, but on the street-style, one of the best attractions of Cibeles. Fashion editors, stylists, models and guests of all kind show their best to surprise. Fashion creates trends, and trends create fashion, that’s true, but everyone decides how to use this trends. Some of the best places to see how fashion goes out to the streets are, without any doubt, the big fashion shows.
Guests dress to the lastest fashion with their best tight jeans, their typical peep toes and the highest platform shoes. Also some girls wear naif mini-dresses or casual style. Some of them choose XXL handbags, others choose wallets, but they’re all divine. It is “The Other Show”, the real adaptation from trends to the street.
