With this we are in August, hardly even realize that it is just a day to start Cibeles, rather, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Madrid. And with scrolls, nerves come from designers, the latest fixes in the workshop, fittings, finally, some very tense moments but where you can see how fashion is really (and not just a pretty picture with one beautiful model in a dreamy backdrop). The designer Martin Lamothe is kind enough to teach us how to live the days before the parade in a blog written as a diary.
The idea is not new, in Canal + have released a documentary series called Before the parade, with players such as Lanvin, Jean Paul Gaultier and Isabel Marant in which you can see the stress being experienced in sewing workshops so that everything is perfect for the big day, the day when everyone can see your hard work for six months.
As you can see from the collection of Martin Lamothe, the designs look very nice, very retro pattern and color as predominant lemon. A style that reminds me of what they did Miucca Prada and Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton lately, and with careful preparation, worked and performed with attention to every detail. Something very different from the uniformity of prêt-à-porter.
The end result of his collection to FRESH : On Sunday September 2 at 19:30 pm. And you can be there to see it through a contest that will do tomorrow Martin Lamothe in the blog and on its website Facebook .
