Since I am currently living in Madrid, there was no way I would miss this brilliant opportunity that has just so presented itself. I had to go and visit some of the shows.
As every city’s fashion is distinct, I was interested into learning more about Spanish designer’s talents.

Also, it was the very-first time I would attend this fashion event.

I had to chuckle when I heard Ailanto is a brand founded by twin brothers.
The inspiration for this collection originated partly from their visit to the Kew garden in London, a remarkable place for botanical art containing also the Shirley Sherwood Gallery. It is the first gallery in the world dedicated solely to botanical art. At the same time, the idea for the butterfly sllhoutes came from naturalists Maria Sibylla Merian and Marianne
Toledo born Ana Lockings’ fall/winter 2014-15 collection titled “American Landscapes” was all about the American Dream: The Wild West with its cowboys, Indians, beautiful American landscapes, the blue skies, the endless Route 66 (spread out through several U.S. states) and American movies like “Easy Rider”, “Wild at Heart” or “The Wizard of OZ”.
The designer used quite a lot of materials, such as tweed, synthetic hair, cotton, denim, neoprene, ostrich feathers, sequins etc. They are metaphors used to symbolize the diverse landscapes that have to be visited in order to reach the American dream.
It was a very interesting event, filled with different ideas, approaches, materials and colours. I followed their Inspiration and decided to include more colours in my blog during this coldest and grayest month of the year. The Spanish capital is known as one of the most sunniest cities in Europe, however it seemed to me Madrid itself could use a bit more colur and light.
