From 8th to 12th july it will take place 080 Barcelona Fashion at the Design Hub Barcelona (DHUB), showing the last proposals of the spring-summer 2014 season from more than thirty different designers and brands. At moment, 080 Barcelona Fashion presented new collections of independent designers who competed for the best collection prize award. The aim of 080 Barcelona is to provide a platform to increase the visibility of independent designers and help them make a mark in the international market.
Highlights of 080 Barcelona Fashion included shows by Custo Barcelona, Mango, Desigual and others. Mango opened the first parade of the show with its collection — pinstripe suits and jackets with glut of shimmering black and some touches of red. Showstopper on the second day of the show was Brazilian model Adriana Lima, who for the first time marched in Spain for designer brand Desigual in a tight white dress with circular patterned red and green stripes.
With this new edition of 080 Barcelona Fashion, the Department d’Empresa i Ocupació -by the Catalan Consortium of Commerce, Artcraft and Fashion (CCAM)- continues supporting the projection of Catalan fashion with a catwalk where designers and established brands will show their last SS14 collections, to help strengthening the links between design and textiles.
