080 Designers
Friday, 17 January

Design, creativity and innovation. The 080 Barcelona Fashion is putting the final touches to the 13th edition of the event and, far from being put off by the superstition of the number, it keeps banking on both consolidated and budding designers as well as on the Catalan brands, offering a total of 34 shows, the highest amount of them in its history.   



This year, the Catalan catwalk will have the awaited returns of brands that add to the prestige of this fashion event. Such is the case of Sita Murt, the company from Igualada that, after taking part for some years in the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid, has decided to commence a new stage in Barcelona. In the Catalan capital, they presented their first collections at the old Passarel·la Gaudí. This way, Sita Murt is one of the three brands –together with Guillermina Baeza and TCN– that have returned from Madrid to their origins in Barcelona. Txell Miras will also be present at the 080 Barcelona Fashion. The designer from Sabadell comes back to the Catalan catwalk to present her new collection: 'Retrats' (Catalan for portraits).


The 080 Barcelona Fashion keeps up acting as a springboard for the budding talents. For this reason, the new edition will introduce us new faces. This is the case of Lebor Gabala, the professional project by designer Maite Muñoz; Manuel Cruz Castillo, whose work appeared in public for the first time in Madrid; and SSIC and PAUL, by Paula Boadas and Jessica Raya. These budding creators add to the list formed by Georgina Vendrell, who is specialised in men's clothing, and Oscarleon. The later two have already participated in previous editions of the Catalan catwalk.


After starring a brilliant début, Selim de Somavilla is back at the 080 Barcelona Fashion. The designer was awarded in past July's edition the special mention for the collection 'A Thousand Words'. Selim will share the catwalk with Krizia Robustella, in a show that promises to be one of the most eclectic and colourful of the event. Natalie Capell will also take part in the 080, for the second time, with her new collection 'A Dream'.
