Spanish Fashion Designers at affordable prices for elegant occasions

one of my favorite designs from Double Ikkat
June and July are well known months for hosting some of the big events such as weddings, big parties and cocktails. Although we are not a fashion blog, I thought that some tips on where to get nice gowns at affordable prices would be surely appreciated for those of you who want to renew your wardrobe. Specially knowing that Spanish fashion has remarkable things to offer and that there’s life after Zara!

My choices are mainly three:
 DoubleIkkat: created by two inspiring young woman Paloma and Eva, they have created few years ago a succesful fashion company mainly based on-line but also available in Speed and Bacon and Vallmai. They have elegant, unique and sobber dresses with always a Little twist that makes the difference. Their prices are very reasonable and in case you buy on-line no post services cost for more tan 100€ shopping and in case you want to return it is always easy.
-       Poète: They have many shops around Madrid that are very femenine and cause, although shopping on-line is also possible. Their romantic and femenine style will surely help you find a colourful and flower power dress that will make you feel just … ready to impress! I have already wore some of their dresses and apart from the fact that I loved how they suit me, I also have to say that with just a handwash at home, your dress will be ready for a next party.

-       Mimoki: we have already mentionned Ana Maria and her lovely shop many times, but hadn’t informed our readers that they have moved into Conde de Aranda. I always love to visit her as her kindness is remarkable and you find not only a great outfit but also great complements as headbands, jewelry and casual clothes. She is also well known for her great #breakfastatmimoki and for selling our my little Madrid guides in the past!

  1. Thank you so much for this post! It is so difficult to find a ball gown for a reasonable price, considering that you rarely wear them.

    I like to buy them long and simple but not too simple, to shorten them later on.

    1. Dear Leonie! I'm sure you'll like them all. Now they are on sales!!

  2. Madrid tiene cada vez un mayor problema con las plagas de cucarachas, especialmente en las noches de verano (como much@s sabréis). Cada vez hay más en el alcantarillado y eso hace que cada año salgan más a la calle en estas épocas del año. No sólo producen animadversión, sino que pueden transmitir enfermedades a humanos (ya que residen en zonas de aguas fecales) y a animales (pueden contagiar parásitos a las mascotas y animales que las cazan, sobre todo a los gatos, así como facilitar que ingieran el veneno que llegan a acumular sin daño). En zonas amplias de almacenaje pueden contaminar los alimentos con hongos y bacterias que reducen su vida útil.
    Por eso hemos creado una petición en DecideMadrid para que se ponga un marcha un plan de control de la población de cucarachas. Por favor, apóyalo y difúndelo!!!!
    Es muy sencillo, sólo tenéis que apoyar esta propuesta: https://decide.madrid.es/proposals/11932-desinfectar-las-calles-de-cucarachas-especialmente-en-verano
    Muchas gracias!
