Madrid Boosts with Fashion -Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (old Pasarela Cibeles)

Fashion is all around!!! Not only Mercedes Benz Fashion Week  and the OFF program, but also the Vogue Fashion Night Out TONIGHT!!!!

I have been to two extraordinary catwalks and loved it!!! Del Pozo and Alvarno.

Nice fashionist legs
Madrid fashion shows were usually much less glamorous than Paris, Milan or London, the exhibition place IFEMA outside Madrid in a huge warehouse made the experience a bit cheap..  luckily designers are avoiding the official circuit and the two fashion shows I have attended have been gorgeous!!!
Two good friends invited me to Del Pozo and Alvarno’s fashion shows and though I’m not an expert in fashion, I will summarize my impressions for My Little Madrid followers:

Delpozo Catwallk: was a floating, romantic, poetic experience… It merely deserves BRAVO in capital letters!!!!

Amazing place: Jardin del Capricho a bit the Madrilenian Marie Antoinette Versailles private park from Duchess of Osuna, lovely park full of roman statues from the 18th century where she used to organize shows and games. Improved by Rent a Garden,  very creative with an inspiring good taste.

Amazing designer: Josep Font as new Del Pozo, chief designer presented a wonderful collection full of delicate materials, high hip trousers and skirts and original Chinese hats that would win my Oscar for fashion. As much talented as discreet Josep Font showed briefly to get the public applause...

Alvarno also made an effort for its catwalk though Del Pozo’s work was difficult to improve. The place  was original and super elegant: Palacio Lazaro Galdiano in Serrano, 19th art tycoon palace home, their work was very nice but not stunning to me:  much navy blue, transparencies and a lot of plastic in their clothes. A good bunch of public to enjoy their show that was happy to enjoy a great cocktail afterwards…
