presents his thirteenth collection, titled Córdoba, with a spectacular fashion show at El Paseo del Prado in Madrid, a space recently declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO. With this presentation, the young designer has moved his roots and imaginary to the capital’s centre in a very emotional way, paying a particular tribute to his hometown.
once again studies the context and the cultural background with which his signature brand was conceived, once again acknowledging the value of Madrid
, the city that hosted his first fashion show, as an inexhaustible source of inspiration in an environment whose history has shaped the identity that has taken his surname "Spain" so far.
With intent, and the greatest enthusiasm to share these values and creative elements with his audience, Palomo proposes a new level of understanding by internalizing his hometown, Córdoba
, as a culture melting pot where Roman, Arab, Jewish and Christian cultures come together.
The collection works with both technical materials and natural fabrics
. Wool, silk and cotton poplin are mixed with Lycra, taffeta and metallic paper. Paying his particular tribute to premium Spanish crafts, as he does in each of his collections, the young creator once again includes crystal embroidery, lace, fringes or crochet, which now stands as a classic in his collections.
The Madrid Municipal Symphonic Band
laid on the fashion show’s live soundtrack, together with Cordovan soloist pianist María Dolores Gaitán
, who performed the musical piece "Palomo Spain
", created expressly for the occasion and directed by Valter Sivilotti
For this spectacular staging in the heart of El Paseo del Prado, creator Alejandro Palomo has counted with the collaboration of Madrid’s City Council
through the Culture and Tourism Area’s delegate, Andrea Levy.
