My Little IKEA Shop in Madrid

IKEA has done it again! It has reinvented its model! The company has decided to combine the big outskirt warehouse with the traditional intimate downtown little shop. In Madrid the chosen location couldn’t be more typical and central: El Rastro. We all love el Rastro, its bargaining spirit, the special and unique pieces you can find there… How can IKEA, so modern, so Nordic, so clean, combine with it?

My little DIY Madrid Wedding!

 We’ve been absent from blogging in the last few weeks and the reason, as you might have known, was that the younger of the two “My Little Madrid” sisters got married! It’s been quite a busy time but of course we are back on track and hoping to give some tips for those of you who are planning on getting married in Madrid!

Fashion Designer Teresa Palazuelo - this time for kids

We were invited by Teresa Palazuelo to her Atelier. The occasion was the presentation of her line TPKids, First Communion outfits. I have to say that I liked many things. First, the place: a traditional atelier, with large tables, beautiful fabrics and seamstresses delighted with their diligent work.

Pop Up Christmas Shopping in Madrid - The Appartment & Madrid in Love

 It’s late for Santa but still in time for the Three Wise Men (los Reyes Magos), which is the real tradition in Spain for Christmas presents.

La Comercial - Nice Shopping for Christmas Presents

bustier dress by Cristina Ponce de Leon
Look what you can do with your cheeseburger wrappings!!!

La Comercial de Villanueva is an interesting space full of imagination. Carefully selected objects for women, mothers and their daughters; clothes, accessories, books, candles, paintings, ceramic, furniture and much more... Besides its own brand, Casiopea, La Comercial offers national and foreign brands such as NIU, Les Petits Hauts de Paris and Bella Jones.

And the most interesting thing is the opportunity La Comercial provides to young designers and artists who show a promising talent. Two awesome and striking works by artist Cristina Ponce de León are shown at present. One is a bustier dress made out of cheeseburger wrappings and the other a dress made out of wood clothespins.

It deserves a visit, either for christmas shopping or just to admire the work of Cristina Ponce de León.

Jean Paul Gaultier an exuberant exhibition at Mapfre

Gaultier corsets
Gaultier corsets even for pregnant women!

I was reluctant to go to the Jean Paul Gaultier Exhibition at Fundación Mapfre. Don’t know why it didn’t appeal to me. And it was a great mistake!! It is a wonderful exhibition, loads of imagination displayed both by the curator and the artist. Gorgeous set up and magnificent outfits by Gaultier. A real artist!!! It realy deserves the visit (on until  January the 6th).

Jorge Acuña - Museo del Traje - Madrid Fashion Show

Fashion week in Madrid - front row
Avenida Juan Herrera 2

Fashion week starts in Madrid, and not necessarily at Pasarela Cibeles. The Museo del Traje, worth to visit  any day of the year and directed by young and charming Helena López del Hierro, has a program of fashion shows OFF (meaning off the main circuit); Madrid Fashion Show. Other activities highly recommended can be found here: Museo del Traje activities winter 2012. We went to see young Jorge Acuña; great colours and amazing shapes, inspired in prehistoric animals and bugs.
