“Fashion is a dream” celebrates 25 years of Spanish talent
The exhibition takes a tour through the best designs by Spain’s top fashion names.
As a tribute to the great masters and top names of Spanish design, the Education, Culture and Sports Ministry, in partnership with Spanish designers’ association ACME, has organised an exhibition entitled “Fashion is a Dream: 25 years of Spanish talent”, which runs from 25 October 2012 to 13 January 2013 at the Cerralbo Museum in Madrid.
The exhibition, arranged like an impressive palace ball, enables visitors to time-travel back to some of the best designs by top Spanish creators in the last quarter of a century. From its origins, with Balenciaga and Pertegaz, it moves on to the early years of the Cibeles and Gaudí Catwalks, which saw the consolidation of talent like Sybilla, Jesús del Pozo, Adolfo Domínguez, Manuel Piña and Antonio Miró. It then moves on to a second generation, led by Victorio & Lucchino, Devota & Lomba, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, Roberto Verino and Custo Barcelona, who in turn have passed the baton to a third generation, including designers such as Hannibal Laguna and Miguel Palacio, and the fourth and most recent generation in the shape of José Castro, Teresa Helbig and Maya Hansen.
Jordi Labanda has created the smart red, black and white poster inspired by the audacious silhouette of Sybilla’s famous dress “España”. The iconic setting of the Cerralbo Museum (17, Calle de Ventura Rodríguez), the epitome of a 19th-century hôtel particulier, serves as a backdrop for the outfits which are set off against the museum’s impressive rooms. The exhibition includes a total of 70 designs which are displayed alongside jewellery by top names like Joaquín Berao, Chus Burés and Paloma Canivet.
