BIOGRAPHY
 

Born in Baix Empordà (Girona), Xevi Fernández’s interest in art awoke at an early age through drawing, dance and music.
 
He grew up in an environment where a lot of value was given to the most traditional role of clothing, spending every afternoon of his childhood in the haberdashery his family ran, observing how the women of the town tended to their own clothes. Adding to his growing motivation to start a career in the fashion world.
 
He studied at ICM Barcelona. During his training, he won several awards such as the Bread & Butter Berlin Young Talent Prize, where he was rewarded with a stand at the fair and he showed his first collection. This collection was awarded Best Men's Collection in Creamoda (Bilbao).
 
Since February 2016, he has presented his latest three collections at the MBFWM fashion show.

 
COLLECTION-   FIFTEEN MINUTES FAME
 

The Factory is a myth within the art world and a reference within the counterculture of the 60s in North America. Founded by Andy Warhol in 1963 and located on the fifth floor of 231 47 East Street in Manhattan. It was the place to be in the sixties if you wanted to live the reality of the movement in the flesh.
 
This center of art, disco, film studio and bohemian sanctuary was a meeting place for artists such as Edie Sedgwick, Bob Dylan, Nico, The Velvet Underground, Dalí, Paul Morrissey ... In this way, a group of characters was born called the Warhol Superstars,. Characters Warhol said had to enjoy their fifteen minutes of fame.
 
The decoration of the studio was unusual, and Warhol covered all the walls with silver- paint, tin foil and broken mirrors. Trying to project the message:
 
“The world is in decline and the proto-glam of the sixties, too.”
