THE SANT PAU ART NOUVEAU SITE IS ONCE AGAIN THE MAIN VENUE OF THE 080 CATWALK

6 Jun 2019 - 10:22

As in the last editions of the 080 Barcelona Fashion, the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site keeps as the official location of the fashion event, whose 24th edition is running from June 25 to 28. The splendour of this site by architect Lluís Domènech I Montaner, built between 1905 and 1930, and its big capacity and possibilities, make it the perfect setting to not only host the fashion shows of the 24 participant brands and designers, but also the parallel activities, the Pop Ups Gallery, the 080 Barcelona Fashion Showroom and the rest of attractions of the Catalan fashion week.

The once headquarters of the old hospital of Santa Creu and Sant Pau during 80 years underwent a major restoration which brought back its modernist heritage glory and transformed the old pavillions with the latest technology to prepare them for new uses. Currently, the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site has established itself as a knowledge, research and innovation campus that is home to important international organizations, some of which related direcly with the United Nations. Health, sustainability and education are the three main axes of the current institutions within the site.
 
From June 25th, also fashion will take stage, as it did for the first time in the 080 summer 2014 edition, on occasion of the reopening of the site after a first restoration stage, and also from the 20th edition, in summer 2017, to celebrate the opening of new areas and pavillions. Since then, the successful join venture between the 080 and the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site has been confirmed not only thanks to its architectonic and technical characteristics but also its centric location in Barcelona, acceessible by public transport (bus and metro) and nearby another Modernist icon of the city: the Sagrada Familia.
 
We will be able to enjoy once again this major landmark of Catalan heritage from June 25 to the 28th, when it will open its doors to the citizens to celebrate the 24th edition of the 080 Barcelona Fashion, which will also present an additional location for the swimwear fashion shows. We will give more details about this novelty and announce the opening of the accreditations period soon through this website and our social media channels. Stay tuned!
