Designers Miriam Ponsa, Josep Abril and Laia Roca from Who will take part in the 8th edition of the Rec.0 Experimental Stores, an event that is to be located one more year in the industrial district of Igualada. From the 5th to the 8th of June, these creators, who are connected to the 080 Barcelona Fashion, are going to offer a special sale of stocks with discounts starting at 60%.

An old tannery will host the pop-up stores, a singular space of which the architect Benedetta Tagliabue has taken care of the interior design. Other renowned creators such as Toni Frances and Txell Miras, who participated in past editions of the Catalan fashion event will share the same place.

The 8th edition of the Rec.0 Experimental Stores will gather a total of 50 fashion brands that will be distributed in 30 different pop-up stores, like the spaces in which Custo Barcelona, TCN, Desigual and Mango will sell their clothes. This latter firm will be present for the first time at the Rec.07. Along four days, the event will endorse the fashion by both big brands and independent designers. In addition, culture will be very important in the event too, thanks to a programme that includes activities like music, theatre and poetry, which are aimed to complement the shopping experience set in an industrial atmosphere that brings back the historical value of the Rec district in Igualada.
