Ten years have passed since I began to march in Ailanto Cibeles Madrid Fashion Week. And for the next Spring-Summer 2012 promises to surprise once again, this time inspired by the French painters of the Nabi movement and contemporary dance in Germany.
Ailanthus has on view both in the domestic market with its new store in Barcelona, as in the international market, especially Japan, where they love their original prints and where they dream of one day parade and the United States, where they will begin shipping in the chain Anthropologie. An accolade that opens the gates of the American market.
Exclusive to Jared, the Muñoz brothers later on what we see on the catwalk on the 18th September. We look forward proposals and its always fresh and contemporary.
