080 Designers
Tuesday, 15 January

Less than a month left to kick off the 23rd edition of the 080 Barcelona Fashion catwalk that will take place at the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site from February 4th to 7th. As usual, the organization welcomes new designers and brands that broaden the styles of the Catalan fashion seen on the runway. In this winter 2019 edition, there are three names that will make their debut: the genderless young fashion brand 113 Maison, the designer Rubén Galarreta and the womenswear brand Teoh & Lea, which will bring new vibes to the fashion shows’ schedule.

The emerging fashion brand 113 Maison already rings a bell in the 080 circuit because it was the winner of the 2nd edition of the 080 Barcelona Fashion / Rec.0 contest. It’s an independent fashion project founded by the photographer Mariona Puig and the patter designer Jorgina Carrera. Born in Amberes, 113 Maison offers a unique point of view that runs away from standardisation to present a fashion with an organic and hand-made feel, which challenges conventions in genre, social class and ideology as well as the consumerism of the age of the fast-fashion.

In addition, the young fashion designer Rubén Galarreta comes to the 080 Barcelona Fashion after a skyrocketing career that brought him from the design school IADE in Madrid to work in India alongside the acclaimed haute-couture designer Manish Arora. Known for his elaborated, colorful and lavish designs, Arora has dressed many celebrities like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. Rubén Galarreta had the chance to show his talent precisely for the latter, one of the milestones of his intense career. For his own line, he presents a urban and daring style, defined by prints, dressmaking techniques and cultural diversity.

Finally, Teoh & Lea closes the group of newcomers of the 23rd edition with their timeless casual-chic fashion for women. With an international presence through 150 sale points around the world, now it makes its debut on the 080 Barcelona Fashion catwalk to present their new collection and show to the professional public their proposal of a fashion focused in knitwear, the star fabric of this young fashion brand.
