Fashion designer Juan Carlos Mesa premiers at one of the most emblematic Spanish fashion houses, Ángel Schlesser. In his first fashion show for the leading fashion brand at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid, style icon Katherine Hepburn, a standard bearer of risky femininity, a daring and independent woman, has inspired the fashion creator.

The overwhelming personality of the Hollywood actress is the starting point of a collection that is based on the most classic patterns to look towards the future through fabrics. The creator has thus wanted to pay tribute to Schlesser’s clientele by being close to them, one of the designer’s main objectives since his arrival at the fashion firm.

His designs play with masculine ambiguity without losing an iota of femininity. Freedom has guided the designer to create a fashion collection of clean lines and careful finishes. Shirt dresses for the day and cape dresses for the night stand out as the essential garments of Mesa's first summer for Schlesser. Poplin and linen are the star materials of the brand's more daytime looks, which give way to the evening through silk satins, micro-sequins and sparkling lamés.
