Highlights from the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Madrid

The Mercedes Benz Fashion Week was held in Madrid from February 1st to February 5th. It showcased the Pret-A-Porter (Ready To Wear) fashion created by Spanish designers for Fall/Winter 2012/2013.

Five days full of amazing fashion and backstage craziness. Even though I was not able to attend, I did my research on it, seeing every single collection and a variety of backstage videos that offered interesting material.

I'd love to show you everything but since that would be way too long, I'm going to show you what I liked the most from my favorite designers and collections.

Jesús del Pozo: this was the designer's first collection after his passing last year. I loved his work so much and the firm is still true to what it was before, so I really liked it.

María Escoté: I loved the neon colors and I though most of the garments were actually really cute, and I'd wear them (if I had the money to buy them). That's really important because it IS ready to wear. It is overall a really cute and fun collection. 

Roberto Verino: this collection was very daring even though it was all neutral colors. The way the garments are constructed is really complex and it gave it an edge.

Juana Martin: I don't follow her work but this collection caught my eye. It is elegant but in a fun way. I like how she used a bright pink and made it sophisticated. 

Devota & Lomba: I liked the use of jackets since it is a fall/winter collection. Sometimes jackets can ruin an outfit (or at least that's what I think) but this collection is an example of how a jacket can be the key to fabulous.

AA by Amaya Arzuaga: all I can say is: I don't know why, but it works.

Miguel Palacio: his collection has both classic and modern elements. I think it is a very beautiful collection and I would also wear most of the clothes from it (again, if I had the money). It is one of my favorites.
