The Best Emerging Design Award of the 080 Barcelona Fashion 20th edition is for Mietis and her collection “Cosmic Cinderella” for spring-summer 2018. Designer Maria Fontanellas makes her debut in this edition held at the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site with this collection that plays with different fantasy worlds and universes to create pieces with a strong personality that have led to this recognition.

The flappers’ style of the 20s goes hand in hand with a futurist heritage reflected on arquitectonic designs and the silhouettes from the sixties. In addition, Mietis pays homage to motor racing through jaquets and trousers made of leather, the star fabric of this collection, and succeeds in mixing up all theses references in harmony and a common aesthetics with which she updates the leather tradition of Igualada, the town where Mietis has its atelier.
