080 Barcelona Fashion has brought many glimpses of the coming Fall/Winter 2017/18 trends. With a great tribute to Pierre Cardin –musical inspired on Wilde’s Picture of Dorian Gray- presenting his latest collection, the fashion show awarded two Spanish designers: Antonio Miró with his collection “Orígens” inspired on the Amish people; and Oscarleon with “I close my eyes, I can feel you” inspired on urban, feminine and cosmopolitan women.
Young emerging fashion designers (like José Maria Garcia or Ze Garcia) could show their works, as well as well-known firms and names such as Custo Barcelona or Josep Abril. The National Theatre of Barcelona (TNC) hosted a great fashion show during this week and brought many insights to what’s to come in our fashion magazines, stores, ..and closets! Colors:
black and grey were the most present ones although there were also yellows, whites, reds and blues. As for patterns and styles, here is what will be the “it” thing on FW1718 campaigns: Squares
