Today I start this post with the wonderful show of one of the great artists of my country, which I had the privilege of attending it. In this case we speak about the spanish designer Francis Montesinos, who showed us his collection for Next Spring / Summer 2014 “Pura Vida”.
As always, a spectacular staging and a little performance dedicated to two of the Spanish cultural landmarks: the copla and flamenco, with a collection brimming with eclecticism and joie de vivre, which counted on the catwalk with presence of the dancer and choreographer Rafael Amargo, and ethe music group Saudade.
Its emblemantics shirts with frills, reinvented in floral print silk, or converted the folk tail gown in an evening suite, highlighted in a collection that combines fine gauze and organza, with techniques such as brocade, crochet or sequins.
Visionary, creative and innovative, Valencian Francis Montesinos has one of the most exciting and meaningful careers within the national Spanish fashion.
Thanks for the invitation, it was a pleasure to attend and no doubt a dream come true. I leave a picture with Francis, this has been my second chance to be with one of the greatest, after having interviewed a few months ago for VDL Magazine. Wonderful parade full of Pura Vida, pure flamenco party!
