I kinda missed my favs. Yeah, I was around the VFW as usual, but I managed to miss some of my favourite designers.
The most important ones, were doing performances at 12:30 in the morning… and as much I had tried for years to be in time for the morning shows I never, absolutely never accomplished it… mostly if Jose isn’t picking me up as usual.
And if you add up the fact that Absolut Vodka was the Sponsor of the Kissing Area… well, let’s just say that I rather go with the online videos than actually try to remember whatever I saw… cause I had as many as possible FREE gin-vodkas I could… (Bloody Maries if it was lunch time)
So let’s enjoy together a little bit of what I actually missed… or was… whatever…
Obviously, whoever was recording this was following Diego alll around, he’s the second to last guy. It’s just the carousel but you can take a look to her upcoming A/W collection there and in the link above.
We fell in love with her collection when she was participating last year in Zona D.
We saw her collection, we fall in love with it, and afterwards we fall in love with her when she won and couldn’t make a word. It was just amazing.
I just love his art….
And as favourites shows I managed to watch and enjoy I must make a mention to Julio Almiñana. I didn’t know the guy but his idea of put a dancer in the middle of the catwalk and made the models look at her with hate totally rocked it…
Le freak Ole!
If you’re Spanish you maybe know them from Trendtation. They were the closing, pretty good for being their first time in Valencia, uh?
They’re a couple of amazing girls from Madrid. They mix tons of cultures in their designs and are able to spawn things as awesome as these:
And as usual, while this was happening I was in my way… in a bus… opposite direction may I add.
And of course, Siempre Es Viernes. Not only their collections are fun and refreshing, but the guys are awesome. They’re unique. I had the chance to meet them last s/s and they were the most polite and nice designers in the backstage. There was tons of black in all of the collections, but they managed to give it the funny touch they give to all their clothes. REFRESHING! That’s what we all thought… but the grannies that managed to screw the whole show with their comments about how everything was filled of holes, speaking about that… PLEASE, STOP GIVING INVITES TO OLD WOMEN… IF THE BUS ARRIVES TO THE PLACE WHERE THEY’RE INVITED FOR FREE YOU CAN BET YOUR ASS THEY WOULD BE ATTENDING!!!
And coming back to Siempreesviernes… amazing, uh?
And I spent a whole week fantasizing about the scarf/hood/whatever it was thing the models were wearing in their heads…
And I got inspired…
And this is what I came up with
Safety Pins + 1/2 x 2 meters of black cotton fabric.
You just need to join the ends with the safety pins…
Et voila, hope you like it ;D

La crisis esta agudizando el ingenio de tod@s.
En valencia la gente se mueve, como supongo que en todas vuestras ciudades, y continuamente se organizan quedadas abiertas a todo el mundo para intercambiar ropa, porque como el lema dice: lo que para ti es basura, para otros es oro!
Gente de todas las edades y clases se reunen por distintos puntos de la ciudad para intercambiar prendas y otros objetos multiples.
Y dentro de colectivos de gente que vende o intercambia ropa, esta el caso de Las 3 Marias. Un grupo de chicas que recoge toooda la ropa que ninguno ni nadie quiere, las customiza (cuando dan a basto) y venden a precios de risa para subvencionar distintos proyectos sociales que nuestro querido ayuntamiento considera prescindibles…
pero que ellas no (ni muchos otros tampoco) y por eso trabajan en este proyecto que ya se esta convirtiendo en un evento mensual.
Su proximo rastrillo es el dia 30 de Enero. En el Barrio del Carmen, en el centro historico de la ciudad.
Justo antes de la VFW, y creedme, se encuentran joyas vintage dignas de una pasarela.
Asi que si estais por Valencia, ya sabeis.
La gente se mueve, se ayuda y colabora mediante la moda y es hermoso formar parte de ello y poco a poco encontrar un sentido dentro de una industria tan superficial y muerta.

Saturday was one of the worst best nights in my life. I was burglarized. Goodbye to the BB, ID, School ID, everything!
All the happiness because “The return of the Party” were back in town went away when we noticed our belongings had been stolen.
But well, in tough times is when you notice who are your friends. Everyone tried to make the night better and it was.
So thanks to you all for make us smile even though we just wanted to tear heads away!
But not everything has been partying this weekend. On friday we made a fabrics shopping spree to Alicante.
The shop didn’t ressult to be as cheap as we thought but we found trimmings.
There’s been tons of sewing but I want to make things fine so I’m taking it slow and not allowing the euphoria to take over me and screw some dress.
Soon, very soon in X gone Y.
